So I've had the A-5 for a year now and Ive put alot into upping it.  It has the E-grip, JCS double trig, Flatline barrel, Ricochet hopper and a supafly bolt.  Im going to repaint it because it's losing its "finish". The paint is just chipping off.  So what would you reccommend for colors or fades?  I was sorta thinking a silver to blue fade would look awesome.  Also I like orange and green so what about a green to orange fade.  Another option would be just plain red.  When you post please put which of these you like and your own suggestion.  THX!
My guns name is Mr. Max in remembrance of my dog that got hit by a car: Tippmann A-5
Ricochet R-5
JCS double Trigger
Tippmann E-Grip
Flatline Barrel

Do you have the need for speed?

yeah, eventually I want to paint my 98c with a black to blue fade

Out of curiosity, how much does a paintjob cost?

NASA and the Americans spent millions of dollars and hundreds of hours to develop a pen that would write in space.....The Russians used a pencil.

^^^If you do it yourself not much at all. A thing of paint, primer, and clear coat each cost around $3 so that's about $10 in all for the paint. Back to the thread, I would do an Orange to Black fade. That would look sweet.

are you doing it yourself? if so, the silver to green fade. if you are having a company do it for you, have them do some really cool thing.
