I want to paint a bbz and was hoping someone could help me out with info on how to paint the soft tail. If anyone has painted one would you please share the pictures

I've done one before but instead of painting the tail I just faded the paint job to match the tail.

How did you prep the lure before painting? I have a 4" shad I want to repaint.

Mark, no difference then a regular paint job on the 4" bbz-1
Here is one that I do, I have also painted the tail and clear coated it on another color.
The 8' BBZ is the tail I asked about in another post about painting a soft plastic, I guess the tail needs to be died.

What kind of clear coat did you use?

Mark, I use thinned 2ton for first coat and DN for second coat.
