Even though this is a 125 it is still nice to know what white will look like. I am going to use that spray rubber paint to paint my Zuma 50 white.

Icecruncher, I'd recommend against Plasti-Dip style stuff for the body work. I did the same thing, and I love Plasti-Dip for certain things, like wheels, but for white body work I kept having a problem with them looking dirty. Plus with Plasti-Dip being kind of delicate you can't really take a pressure washer to it or scrub the black marks off without damaging the finish. See the attached image, this is mine that I painted white with some off the shelf stuff that I got from O'Reilly Auto Parts. The white I used was GM Arctic white in a spray can. Honestly it doesn't cost more than Plasti-Dip and isn't even more difficult to apply. You don't even have to sand the panels, just make sure you get the primer and clear coat to go along with it. Way more durable and longer lasting.

Thanks for the input I was wondering about it. I have a can and I am already over budget so I am just going to keep a few good stencils around anytime the logo gets damaged. I will also be able to experiement a lot before I decide on a final scheme.
