Who's got the BEST PAINT JOB?!?!?!

Alright guys, when i was looking for bikes, i saw some with some badass paint jobs, and some with some not so great ones...sadly as a trek 6000 owner, mine's one of the not so great, so that leads me to ask, who's got the best paint job? i don't want opinions, i want pictures and links! Show me your rockin rig and it's primo paint! i wanna see what i'm missing!

Lots of good paint jobs out there. The one I'm doing now is nothing short of psychotic. Not the best though.

I'm in the process of adding decals and clear coating. I have two clear coats applied. I need to wait a few days for it to fully harden before applying decals and finishing the final top coat. Then, the building will commence. I may take some pics of more components that have arrived though.

I like my 80's custom splatter, we have been through a lot together, so much so I would love to refinish my bike, but it pains me to lose the paint
