Matte finish?

does anybody know how to get a flat/matte finish without painting from the outside, or a finish that would be good to put on rally chassis. I do not want my rc body to have scratches because I painted from the outside.:hmmm:

thank you!

Are you talking about Lexan? Without painting it on the outside, there's not an option I can think of. Use Tamiya PS matte clear.

As for dulling the body a little, some #0000 steel wool with dull the shine off of the lexan a bit. Try it on a scrap piece first obviously.

Also, painting the body both on the inside and outside will help hide the scratches. They will be there, but not so obvious since the scratching will have the same color underneath.
