I read about "Body Armor" (Dragon Skin) on the forum a while back. I got some. If feels as strong as the dry wall tape and shoo goo I've done but alot less mess. I haven't applied it to a body yet but think it will work good.

I've used flex seal they make a few colors and clear i like the cans. but it will add weight to rc .and make it top heavy but holds up o abuse and road rash

I always coat the inside of all of my bodies with Flex Seal clear spray. They've held up very well like that.
This ☝️ ☝️ ☝️ is the direction I'm moving to. Currently, I only do certain areas of a body with drywall tape & E6000. I don't like Shoe Goo period... not for the hobby anyway. I prefer E6000 as it is not as thick as Shoe Goo.

I will add, I have been using these foam discs since like forever. Stick 'em at each hole under the body. Lil' bit of cushion is always good in my book. :celebrate:
