Haha I don't think I could afford carbon fibre. I've heard some great reviews over Rustoleum, but it's all about prep work. I have no experience painting and my welding skills are equivalent to those of a guy with Parkinsons having a stroke at the same time, but I'm willing to try whatever.

I think I might go for a proper matte gray paint job, paint (or not) the frame, rebuild engine, carbs, new brake set up, customize seat, strip off fairings, change headlight to something roung (I really like those KG offroad lights, maybe get two of those), new tires, and then just basic stuff that I can throw more money at.
