Very nice paint job especially the transition from silver to mango. Are the silver bits painted or natural?

Thanks for the compliments! The gray parts are indeed gray, and the yellow and gray are auto paints from a spray can. I cut a stencil by hand for the squiggle, and used it as a mask for the black color, also a spray can. (I'm a graphic designer, and a squiggle is standard shorthand for 'headline goes here.') Then I sprayed the whole thing with a 2-part highly toxic this-stuff-will-kill-you epoxy gloss called "Glamour." Up close, it ain't perfect, but it's pretty good for an amateur.
