formulated to match Top Flite MonoKote covering.
Can be used on balsa, plywood, fiberglass, aluminum, ABS plastic,
butyrate and MonoKote.

The matching MonoKote covering is TOPQ0201
When applying over MonoKote, lightly sand off shine with a 320-400
grit sandpaper, clean surface with alcohol and allow to dry.
Apply in thin coats.
*Stock # TOPR7500 and up are the new formulas of LustreKote paint.
Although there is some small differences in color between the new
and old formulas, they are compatible at application. Meaning
one could paint over old LustreKote with new Lustrekote paint.
