Paintjob!

Gonna do a paintjob on my old '06 Compe until my new frame arrives...just don't know what color! I like the sky blue on WTP's frame, its sick ! I might do a fade from White to Sea Green to a Sky Blue, it will take about a month, I got my new airbrush kit to replace my old one. So what are your suggestions? I would say to look at the geometry of the frame before putting something crazy...

Something like these colors. In order it will be: White-Sea Green-Sky Blue (I know its a ****ty picture, I've seen this car in a game and it made me want to paint my frame just like it)

I like the color purple quite a bit, and even owned a purple BMX.

There's nothing wrong with a purple bike or purple parts.

Yes. It's cheaper then car paint and powder coat.

But it's real hard to get it to look like car paint or powdercoat.
