Steve , your in a highly Gov.Regulated state for what paint you can use.This will make your chosies much harder and costly too.Painting is fun,I use a HVLP sprayer and really like using it. Contact Mark Smith at his web site http://www.bunchobikes.com/ he has some good info on painting on this site too.
