Paint theme ??? Idea's ??? All input welcome !

Hey there to all of you rc rider's !!! As I now need to paint my tank, and replace ALL of my body work from my latest Off. . . .

Any body have a favorite paint theme ? post up you idea's and pic's of them...

My self I am considering the black/white Castrol theme..... if I have to buy a "China fairing kit" as I have heard of the horror storys and I have heard of some really good crafted ones....hit & miss with them I guess ?

zebra stripes? leopard print?

In all seriousness... you could just do it original, or the Repsol colors, of course, that would require the rims to be painted orange as well.

Think up your own design!
