    Puke is in the eye of the beholder. I'd like to see a painted Warwick.

    How intersting and true, as most vomit I've ever seen is the color of the warwick, not the jaebird. Come to think of it, I don't believe I've ever seen vomit that was surf green.

    You can get a quick idea of it just by using the "hue" adjustment slider:
    GreenFortressOne.

    Looks pretty cool to me. Cooler than I actually thought it would. Would anyone be kind enough to give it a go with a solid color, no grain showing through?

    That looks like it's straight out of the '80s. Fresh!

    It reminds me of the Dean Custom Zone in Nuclear Green, for some reason.

    Don't know yet. Considering trying it myself, but have no place right now to work on it. I'm open to any ideas, but I don't want to pay and arm and a leg. Would like to just send the body to someone, and have it done for a reasonable price.

    Suggestions?

    Pat Wilkins? I think body refinishes are sub $500.
