It's not automotive rattle can paint, I found a professional car painting shop that says they also help with bicycles and other crafts. They said they put "any color in a can". It is spray, but it's higher quality paint. I will also be clear coating/clear lacquering it.

Ive done that before, its so handy when they can put your cars paint color in a can. It was like $15 a can years ago (in my town anyways) and I wasn't that dedicated to this bike The color on the bike goes from a baby blue to almost a greenish tint depending on how the sun hits it. This is the best I could do even with a point and shoot but it is pretty close to showing the Lagoon color. Definitely keep me updated on the progress.

Just needs pedals and grips, I really love the color. The paint has scuffed pretty easily but oh well.

Help me choose frame paint colors

You already got it painted? I like that deep blue! I'm going for a yellow/blue theme. Yellow grips and saddle to come.

No thats the current color, I haven't repainted it yet. The paint is fairly scuffed up and scratched all over and the fork is a different color so I want to just fix it all up instead of doing just the fork. I'm going to go with a deep blue color, but lighter than navy blue.

These will be part of the project as well, they came off of some old as dirt women's JcPenney cruiser. Ill be getting the rust off this week and then extending the fender supports to fit. My buddy had some gloss black auto paint so I'm going to test the quality.
