did think about white but my intention is to repaint my '95 Kilauea pearlescent white at some stage and the whole reason i want to spray this is because my Kilauea is blue at the moment. was thinking yellow or orange with blue decals. what do you think salty?

You can only respray/ oven bake a steel frame so many times before the steel turns to mush...
