@Jerry - Epic!

Paint colour and scheme can be polarizing, see the Rocket lately painted in robin's-egg blue. I personally love the colour. If I were in the market for a Rocket, that paint job alone would have sold me on it. Others were less keen on the colour as can be seen in the replies to the post.

I think a good paint job of *any* colour and scheme will attract buyers, but different buyers for different colours/schemes. You won't be able to predict who will like what.

The most flexible for a new owner would be a single, solid colour, that could be accented with vinyl. Racing stripes/checkerboards/etc. are all relatively easy for the average person to apply if they have a good paint job as a starting point. Were I looking for a new bird, that's what I would try to find.

Great replies.
Now how to I go about finding a good painter? What questions should I ask and what should I look for when examining his previous work?
