Hello everyone, I want to paint my New Frontier Lower Receiver with some red paint, I want to paint inside of where it says new frontier and on the fire selection area. What type of paint should I use on the Polymer.

Thanks,Paul.

Testors model paint works really good for this type of stuff

I tried nail polish today but it didn't seem to give a solid finish, it was almost transparent because of its thinness I guess, I'll stop by the hobby store and pick up something. Thanks guys

I ordered a small bottle of testors bright red paint for a couple bucks w/ free shipping, saves me the hassle of going at lunch.

I used testors and some nail polish remover on a q tip

The q-tip idea is smart, I planned on just wiping the excess off with a towel or rag.

If you do it with wet paint it just smears, i tried that. Let it dry some and then take the q tip to it.
