Thanks. I think the lights I have in there look pretty good and don't want to cut the body up for the Tamiya lights.

You have to use spray paint made for Polycarbonate body's.
TowerHobbies.com | Search Results

It has different solvents in it that sort of "melt" into the plastic to make a strong bond. If you used something else, you probably can't try to just spray over the first stuff because it may react and wrinkle or at least not penetrate through to do any good. If you can flake off the old paint with a fingernail or old credit card then you could start over with the Poly paint. Also washing a body with warm soapy (dish soap) water first is always a good idea, just make sure to rinse clean and dry with clean paper towels.

Tamiya makes several kinds of paint. The type for Polycarbonate bodies has a PS in the first part of the part number.
Make sure that's what you got.

Oh, okay, my mistake. When I saw pictures of the body I thought you had some black paint on the outside of the body too. I don't think it would be worth it to try to repaint the Cherokee body, easier to start with a new body.

Oh, that's why I mentioned about the part number with the PS in it. So now we have the answer.

I agree, you DID do a good job on the painting. Did you do the window trim and the black on the rear quarter panels in flat black on the outside? It looked good.

Man, I know you don't want to hear this but I think it's easier to start with a new body and keep that as a beater.

I don't know any way to get that paint off without ruining the body.

Maybe you can flex the body and make the rest of the paint fall off?

On second thought, you can sand the paint off with say 220 - 320 grit and paint it again. The paint will fill in the sand scratches and you won't even see it from the other side. As long as you don't hurt the clear outside surface.

But you will have to make new window masks unless you kept the old ones.
And now that you peeled off the overspray film you will have to mask/paper off the whole outside when painting the inside.

See what I mean about starting with a new one would be easier.

*New Video!*

Just a quick video of some scale brakes, wheel lugs, and wheel hubs I installed on the Cherokee today.

I made the special Wheel Lug tool used in this video a couple weeks ago and there is a thread about it on this forum at the link below.

Tool for RC4WD Scale Wheel Lugs for 1.55 Wheels

Very nice. Where did you get those Warn-style front hub covers, and do they repace the standard nylock nut or are they just a cap?
