ok guys.....so you have your nice new shell and you want it to keep nice and undamaged the best you can.

anyone recommend a tape or film or something to stick over the paint on the inside (that wont pull the paint off) to stop it getting killed after a couple of meetings????

selotape :) put a few layers in areas that touch.

nitro blocker, seals the paint, and stops it being rubbed off, any tape you do use will start to pull after a while. Only down side of nitro blocker is you can't stick anything on it afterwards.

i use fibre glass tape, looks like normal clear gaffa tape but cross weaved fibreglass for durability in. available fro b&q and other diy places about 5 a roll but will do 20 plus shells

yep. ive had good results with faskoat..... touch wood
i use it on all my shells also.... leccy n nitro alike
also, make sure there isnt any right angles / jagged edges on ur shell. thatll snap/crack rapid.
for the outside, parma do a scratch / scuff remover. dont know how it works tho as i havent tried it
ive heard of people using 'shoe glue' for inside repairs aswell. havent tried it so dont know how it works or how well but may be worth lookin into
