How long do you think this bodywork will last?

Just finished up another crap rattlecan racebike paint job... Looks OK from about 5 or 10 feet away and like shit as usual up close Hopefully the poor preparation job I did will keep the asphalt away for a while

I'll try to take a pic with a real camera instead of just a camera phone when I locate my digicam...

Should last quite a while. It's the nice paint jobs that take an early tumble.
