    So today, I repainted, well gave it a 2nd coat and a coat of high gloss clear, and I’m much happier with this orange than the peach that I had yesterday, and I painted it myself, and I’m ok with the blemishes that my “painter” pointed out. It’s like scars and tattoos tell a story on a body, defects and such on a bike, tell a story.

    For some reason all of your pics are just thumbnails. Have you tried using the Full Image option when posting pics?

    So, I’ve been busy and haven’t done much until today. I kept looking at the orange paint and it wasn’t special, too much like a standard Orange Newsboys, so it was back to the booth.

    I picked Illusion Money, it’s a dark green, but the first cost is a little light, the same with the Illusion Tangerine,but I’m liking this green, so I think I’m going to keep....at least for today lol.

    Interesting color. If you direct load from your phone gallery, instead of using Tapatalk, we could actually see it! :D

    Just kidding, kind of. Just click on the 'Upload an Image' select your photo, then use the Full Image when you add it to your post.

    Is that just the first coat of paint? And, do you expect it to 'deepen / darken' with a second coat? I kind of like the sheer look of it right now.

    It should darken with a second coat. I had similar results with the orange.

    The second coat is coming out of the oven right now, and it doesn’t look much darker, but I do like it.

    Yeah, actually I was hoping it wouldn't get darker. That color is really unique! Looking good! :thumbsup:

    I like how it turned out lighter than the sample

    It's funny, @rickpaulos has both shades of green on his Green Irish build. :D
