Does SL color offer spraying services, or do they just mix colors?

I figure that if I just do a clear enamel or whatever is most durable, then I'll just get it done at a car shop or something...

Oh, and I guess this is a sneak peak for Alex, as well as another question.

This is the headtube decal that I'm using:


Which font goes better with the personality of Dino:


Also, if you could only have one or the other, would you want a TT logo or a DT logo?

Hm. So Flintstones over Badonkadonk. Sounds reasonable. I'm fairly well split between both of them.

While I enjoy such mundane tasks as metal polishing...painting those lug lines is just WAY too tedious for me.
this reminded me of a funny little blast from the past...forgive the hi-jack: there was an old guy (he seemed old to us high school kids, anyway) who was a very deft pinstriper. He'd do a bike frame (one color with enamel and brush) for a pack of Marlboros and a big Coke. We always thought he added something to the Coke right before he painted.
