can you put any kinda body on a hydro chassie??
the premade hopper chassis are mainly for impalas, cadillacs..... big cars like that. but can usually be trimmed down to a point. what are you thinking about putting one in? ya know yet?

so spray paint would work??? SWEET
yes, they work excellant if you know how to make them work. i paint real cars too so i have a little bit of skill when it comes to that. but if you are carefull with a little bit of time and practice you should be able to lay down some nice stuff.

just make sure you buy good spray paint. not any of the 98 cent stuff lol

like what people have said...I always hit ebay too. Remember to prime your car (any good auto primer) before painting it because most automotive paints will attack plastic. Hoppin Hydro's chassis fit any Impala from 58-76. As far as difficulty, it's only as hard as you want to make it. There are good snap kits with interiors but no engines out there. Revell makes a real nice 96 Impala snap kit with an engine. Other good starter models are the AMT 63 and 64 Impalas, real simple glue assembly. Hobby Lobby or Michaels have basic supplies.
