Lightbar paint. The only stuff to use is Tamiya clear red, green, yellow, orange and blue. http://www.carorama.com/paint/index.htm for the paint.
As for dash lights.
He is a little slow but well worth it from what I hear. He is busy as of late dealign with the clean ups of both Hurricane Charley and Francis as he lives north of Tampa Fla.
Paint for the car is a good oquestion because no one has been able to decide onthis for sure.
Some use automotive paint, some use testors paint and some use tamiya paints in a spray can for this.
I reccomend buying some cans of Kleen-Strip Aircraft Remover to remove all paint from the car to the bare metal. Make sure you remove all plastic parts from it first.
Then get a good bare metal primer like Krylon or Rustolem to spray a good thin coat and let it dry then paint with the regular paint.
PM me for further.
