Finally painted my track bodywork

Got tired of rocking my primered plastics, so I spent part of yesterday and most of this afternoon completing my rattlecan special paint job. First time I've painted bodywork and I'm pretty pleased with the results! Now I just need more stickers...

Some pictures for your review...

Operating a motorcycle. So easy, even a caveman can do it. Knowing how to ride? Priceless.

Looks really good! What brand of paint did you use? I have mine all primered and ready to be painted, but I haven't bought any spray paint yet.

I used Duplicolor paint followed by clear enamel. Think I bought it at Autozone or Murray's - it's been a few months since I made the purchase. This was supposed to be my winter project
