well I Apreciate your honesty I figured if anyone could give me a simple answer it would be here worse case they delete it ill look elsewhere thanks again sir

I agree this shouldn’t really be in Tech Talk category, but I do want to see pics of your TE2+ when it’s finished, so I’ll chime in.

As with any glossy plastic surfaces, yeah you should rough it up with sandpaper before spraying, I’ve seen a lot of rattle canned TE2s with chipping paint. And after laying down the paint, just repeat wet sanding and spraying more coats. There’s lots of YouTube tutorials for getting good results with spray cans.

No recommendations on paint brand, but I do suggest using something like autobody primer before spraying your main color. Also, spray in a clean and ventilated environment cuz getting driveway dirt blown onto your paint is no fun. Check out for more tips on finishing work and other stuff related to fightsticks. That’s all I got, good luck!
