Tamiya spray can mix with Pactra spray
Can you use these two different brands of spray cans on the same body....say use red Tamiya for one of your two tone colors then Pactra for the other color?? both are polycabonate for RC lexan bodies.

I would say that should work but test it on a scrap piece of Lexan first.

Yes, they work fine togather....done it many times"thumbsup"

I have had very bad luck mixing the brands. For some reason the dark colors seem to be worse.

STANG KILLA SS 10-28-2008 07:28 AM

it will work fine, just let the first color completely dry for 24-48 hours.

Thanks, I'll let you know how it turns out

Well here it is, old rig and new paint. I was hoping the blue would be lighter, but oh well. Still need to trim a few spots, but this one is ready for the rocks"thumbsup"

that thing looks really nice.

i think the blue looks good. did you strip old paint or is that just a whole new body ?

rock runt 11-02-2008 11:19 AM

new body, and new paints The blue, and silver were Tamiya.....the white is Pactra

Kryton 11-02-2008 04:13 PM

Yep, you can.just make sure the other is fully dried. One may take longer to cure. But i have done it many times myself. Also check out the line of laquers from testers, they work really well and have some cool colors."thumbsup"
