I was wondering if I wanted to repaint my VS2's body do I have to use some special paint or is there some unique process I have to do?

Would there be any problem if I just spray painted it?

its not the best and closer to the worst.
almost as bad as just leaving aluminum bare

A LOT, you have to bake it to get any decent results and even then Its not that great.

Dura coat is the best way to go of you are going to spray paint. dura caot would some what like an epoxy.Good stuff my freinds AR15 was painted with it no chips yet and looks good.

What if I wanted to get a specific design on it? Not paint the whole thing, but if let's say I wanted to paint a dragon on the side of the body, would it be best if I use an airbrush instead of sending it to some place and spending like $70 just to have it anodized on there? And would it be okay if I use an airbrush on the whole thing, or is that just as bad as spray painting?
