Caad10 Stripped for custom paint (Looking for input)

I've decided that for 2019, I'm going to go back to my winningest bike of all time, and I found a pretty neat already stripped caad10 in my size. I'm looking for paint ideas. I'm thinking:

* Blue to silver kameleon house of kolor paint, similar to the '97 Mustang Cobra
* Fade, similar to the caad10 track
* Asymmetrical decals, maybe?

Anybody have input?

Here's the frame:

Check out Plasti-Dip and variants at any auto-parts store. You can do some cool stuff with it - and if you hate it, peel it off and start over... The rubberized coating is decently durable, and you can add top-coats to it. Experiment with masking and you could come up with something pretty sweet.

I would love a plasti-dip that mirrored something like 97 Cobra:

House of Kolor paints are great. I thought about using them for my 585 repaint project but got scared away by all of the options. I think that in order to get really deep 3d colors you need different base coat, then effects, then top coat. Are you planning to send it out or DIY?

You'll be a marked man, but a crit-monster CAAD10 needs to be LOUD. Turn it up to 11. spray.bike may have your answer.

I'm still deciding between spray.bike and chameleon plasti-dip.

Spray.bike is about 10x more expensive, as I have a paint scheme in mind I'd like to try that involves a whole bunch of colors.

Plasti dip is just black base + chameleon on top.
