The body is MDF primed with automotive primer because I had it and needed to get rid of it. The primer was old but it worked well the cans were another story. The green paint is Behr Oops paint from Home Depot applied with an airbrush. I applied one light coat of Krylon clear satin finish.

The exhaust pipes are flat black acrylic craft paint top coated with clear shellac. I like the look of the flat black but the durability isn't there and if left bare it will leave black marks on things.

The axle hubs are metallic green craft paint with a top coat of clear shellac.

The wheels are finished with amber shellac.

The finish is perfect quality. What is the brand name of the shellac?
