    You have to use the real paint that hobby shops sell. Spray cans from wal-mart wouldn't work because it will start chipping. I don't understand what you mean by bottom and top...

    you are going to divide it right. first or second depends on some factors. like do you want the green to have some darkness to it then paint the lime green first. tape off where you want your line of green then tape up for the balck using tape and paper.covering all that is going to black. then paint the green on to your liking.then paint on the black and you will have a draker shade of green. now if you want the green to pop then strat with the taping off the amount of green you want then spray the black paint on to the desired color then take off the tape you put for the green and spray on the green to your liking. it is easier spraying dark colors first then the light. hope this was helpful.

    Pretty much every rc body is painted on the inside. Reason: if a rc car cashes onto the body, the paint job would be all scratched up. If painted on the inside, it doesnt. It looks the same painted from the inside and outside. Thats why the shell is clear.

    Painting the inside seems like a pain in like spraying the sides of the truck but I kinda figured that

    It is a pain, that's why I just make a design and draw it on paper then get a hobby shop painter to paint it. But yeah, you want it on the inside. Wait,... You want the body painted on the inside. o_0

    yeah paint the inside is a must and will come out very glossywhen you peel off the spray film on the outside. watch some vids on youtube to get better insight on the process. you might find a perfect method just for you.
