    Hey all,

    I'm going to be doing some work on some old clonetrooper armor I've had sitting around to get it up and operational for this Halloween. I need to do some bondo and sanding and was wondering what I need to paint it with to get that shinny white gleam its supposed to have. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    What I would recommend is to just paint the armor with some gloss white paint. I prefer the use of Rustolium appliance expoxy. It's a regular spray style and the paint is extremely durable. When applied right, it gets extremely glossy.

    FYI: for 501st approval, the clones are NOT supposed to be shiny white...

    Quote CRL said:
    - All armor should be matte white or satin white (NO GLOSS). Painter's touch white primer and Rustoleum Plastic Primer are recommended matte white paint choices.
    So if you are going for Legion approval, stick to flat white.
