    Paint ideas?

    So my frame's in primer, I've got the sky blue rattle cans, I know I want some white detail in the paintwork, but I can't decide what. I'm definately going to put two 1/4" stripes down the head tube, offset to one side, but I don't know what else to do. I don't want it just plain blue, but I don't want too much white either. And keep it simple.

    I was thinking maybe the bottom 6-8 inches of the seat and chain stays in white, and maybe a logo or some writing on the downtube. Anyone got any ideas?

    is the frame lugged? perhaps outline the lugs white or silver. or paint the lugs a different color. perhaps paint the head tube white, or white panels blank or with lettering on the down and seat tube...
