That's a truly awesome paint job, but unfortunately may not be the most visible for the less experienced. I'd suggest stick to bright yellow/pink/green/red, flouro if possible, in a pattern that clearly shows your orientation as you swing about.

When you're a pro I suspect it doesn't matter anymore.

Try Arizona Heli for some ideas.

Painting those bleach bottle canopies can sometimes be a lot of frustrating work. If you don't do it just right the paint might peel or chip off easily.

Try going to a sign maker and asking for tossed away scraps of stick on vinyl. It comes in many colors and some can be quite bright. Just cut and float on with window cleaner followed by squeeging out the liquid with a straight edge (credit card works well) and let dry. You can get creative with your own designs and the best part is if you don't like it just peel it off and start over again - no out of pocket material costs. Of course, you can also buy pre-made vinyl stick on graphics from a variety of vendors some of which are in the UK.

Way out of my abilities.
That looks awesome but is way beyond my feeble abilities, well done all the same.

Thanks for the reply.

Whey Hey and Byoo Haloo.

You spotted that David Dickinson term right off mate. His program "Bargain Hunt" is on BBC America here daiiy at 10 AM. I can't believe the junk people buy on that program and then they try to sell it at auction a week later to see if they can make a profit. Most of them end up getting hosed. Maybe it should be called "Crap Hunt" or "Nackers Yard Hunt"?

What can you say about the Dukes of Hazzard, probably the best program to come from the other side of the pond may be even better than the ‘A’Team.

What you taking about FOOL…
