Do remember that a camera on an overcast day can make any paint job look like total garbage.

I painted this bike in the color shift paint, Iím guessing 8ish yrs ago. Green into purple or vise versa. Green was the original color but I wanted something different, hereís a couple pics and I apologize now if there crooked. F-A I do like the blue/purple look, nice work.

Yup and I have to add itís a Tecumseh (sp) that runs GREAT.

I also gave El Mini a couple of coats of the Blue to Purple color shifting paint

* This is sprayed right over the original/factory dark green (not black)

I wanted to update this thread with a couple of pics of !Arriba!
...to show what CX40 color shift pearls look like

https://www.ebay.com/itm/CX40-ColorS...53.m2749.l2649

From the color shape thing in the ad, the look of the pearl powder, itself & also the mixture, I thought it would shift from gold to green
...but, found that it actually shift's from green to gold
...still looks really kool
