Currently I have a halo B2 in see-through redish type of color and I want to make it black. I was thinking hat I would paint it like a rc car body and do it from the inside so it doesn't scratch away on the outside. Would this be worth I or should I just buy a new body for it ?

Just paint it, I would do the inside for sure though, will probably make a sick color to seeing the black thru the red

Im interested in the results. I have a friend who plasti-dipped his that bright yellow, but on the outside. Not familiar about going from the inside. Any idea on what type of paint your going to use?

Why not just get a black shell?

This. Just save yourself the time and effort and get a new shell kit. ANS has them in pretty much any color and they're like 20 dollars.

If you're going to do it on the outside use plastidip. I dipped my mask and it looks pretty good. I wouldnt use it on the inside though, because it has a slightly grippy texture.

A lot of people use plastidip. It's used to black out rims, cars, basically anything really. You can find it at home depot or lowes.

I wouldn't spray the inside. If the paint ever does chip or peel all that trash is now all over your paint and in your marker.
