Anyone have any experience with painting their Grillz? Just trying to figure out what the best paint to do this with is? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

From what i've read on other forums, it seems that the flexbility of grills causes the paint to flake once it dries.

I've used some flexible lexan paint (used for rc bodies which flex). It doesn't flake ,but it rubs off kind of easily.

I was also wondering this because i want to paint my I3's.

I painted one of my crappy JT's and it turned out okay, but the paint didn't stay on very long and i don't want my I3's to look like crap so i'm thinking about not doing it.

Use Krylon fusion paint. It is made for painting plastic. The bottom rubber parts cant be painted with much success. They will always flake because of the flexibility doesnt allow the paint to stick without cracking.
