What kind of paint do some of you guys use.
We tried some $20.00 a gallon paint,it went on good but took forever to dry.That made it hard to do stripes.

all i did is go to paint store got some one step paint ( dont put on primer ) it goes on good but will fade after a couple years. in the racing buis, you dont worry about that just paint and race, then next year paint agine.

We used some of the Lowes Pro choice industrial paint.On my daughters racing kart and it took long time to dry but once dry it was hard stuff!I will use it again.Just my thoughts.

I use Krylon spray paint, works great, it dries super fast, is very cost effective, and it looks professional! I have been using it for years, and every time, the folks at the track want to know what shop did my paint job...It is super easy to fix those rub marks and racin wrinkles in fenders...Just my 2 cents..
