Is the model master primer enamel? If so, don't use it under the Lacquer. When in doubt,test on something. Also,don't "settle" for just what you can find. There must be an automotive type paint & body supply locally,or at least explore the usual big box auto stores like autozone,Pep Boys etc.Get some Plasticote or Dupli-color primer,

Thanks for the feedback!
All three cans are lacquer. Everytime ive ever messed with something for automotive, its gone....bad!

Hooking them up is the easy part, first you have to find the negative side which should be the short side. If it doesn't come on just flip the led around. Make sure you have a resistor coming from the battery or on each led. So a simple diagram would be like

Led positive side to the "on" side of the switch
positive pole on the battery to the "off" side of the switch
The led negative to the negative pole on the battery.

You don't have to use very much juice to run these things at all. I'm going to be using a few LEDs on four 1.5 volt cell battery's. Or total of 6 volts. If this doesn't help I can make a picture diagram to help.

Thanks! I found a while ago some "upgrade kits" on sale at toysrus for a fastlane R/C generic truck. They are to turn the generic style into either a hummer or a ford pickup. I bought them simply because the tires and wheels were awsome and they were only like two bucks! The point of that is, they were also wired with leds. The headlights and tailights were attatched to the body and run to a very tiny circuit board and then to a small plug that i assume you'd just plug into the chassis of the original truck. I removed these and all the wires. I just need to know if i can use them and how i would do that?
