agree! the red/white looks awesome (of course I'm a bit partial to that combo!) but add a little black and it'll really kick it up!

Under the L/E of the stab is smudged, maybe a 3/8"silver stripe tapering to nothing at the wing fillet? Suggestions welcome.
for bleed through, if you're planning on doing anything i wouldn't attempt a solvent solution. to me that'd most likely make a friggen mess. you could use a sharp straight edge and ever so gently scrape the unwanted paint off. but take care that you don't go through the bottom layer. could also sue a bit of steel wool to do the same. If you're clear coating you'll use a light steel wool to dull the bottom first anyhow.
Or you can pismo it and pretend those spots don't exist!
