    It shouldn't be a problem but you have to be a good painter to do the job and make it look good. I would use a small spray paint thing they use to do designs on cars. And wouldn't the paint on the back come off due to the fact you have it in your hand all the time?

    This link should help... http://www.greathobbies.com/technical/tech_lexan_bodies.php

    The rebel touch spine is made out of lexan polycarbonate per their website. Automotive and other type paints will not adhere to it...you need a polycarbonate paint.

    Other than that...some fine grit sand paper for proper adhesion and a clear coat. It'll look great if you do it right.
