Curtis, its Krylon color is sea Glass satin. Krylon is far superior in dry times so fast you avoid runs. The clear is called Krylon triple thick crystal clear. It gets hard in minutes. Rustoleum while has really good coverage ( better than Krylon but seems to never dry and is always sticky for months as it seems, so when I use Rustoleum I then clear it with Krylon Clear. I Just sprayed the Gas tank also and cleared it a few minutes ago. Turned out nice and luckily I did not have any boogers or fish eyes! whewww, thanks again to Dawn Dish soap wash! Everything will hang on its wires for 2 days and let the clear harden fully ( even though it feels hard) one can leave finger prints in it if you hold it in one spot too long), before I rub the paint out with fine rubbing compound and wax em up.
TIP///On the frame I had a thin wire on the bottom of the frame also, so I could lift it at different angles as I was spraying and wow was that the ticket.
I am happy Ill be able to assemble everything soon and expect that to take 3 days and nights at most. This will be the last time I ever do this as its way to toxic a project for my old lungs. Bodyshop or powder coat from now on... I can taste the dang paint in my throat. YUKKKKKKK

Bought the whole shabang off Fleabay like I always do.

Ok here is a testament what can be done with Krylon paint and clear.
check out the flawless factory like reflection now that its dry and clear coat has shrunk tight. Pretty amazing really for rattle can work. Reflections don't lie.

Got wheels on, Fork installed, Headlight installed, Tail lite painted and on, 41 t Sprocket on tight, Handle bars on and Brake lever on, and threw on the center stand. I also installed the tool Box. Here is a few picts, so its coming together PDQ. Gas tank Later today and the motor and controls.. IF I get spare time...
