Default Think I'm going to paint my bike, suggestions

Ok so I was helping a friend look at bike and it made me slightly jealous, I have been thinking that I was going to buy new plastics this summer but figured why not be original. This is not my bike, my bike is curently red and black from factory with some scratches n what not, and I just bought red SS brake lines so I kind of wanted it somewhat red. This is what I came up with in Photoshop (I suck, I know). What do you guys think?
Finding red monster decals is slightly hard and the only one i can find and like is chrome red, so I'm thinking all the red decals will be chrome red.
Oh and I think I may also add a F4i on the side, What do you guys think?

Get rid of the monster symbol and it would look amazing. Also throw a high-mount pipe on there.

The rim tape is horribly wiggly! Or is that just the camera?

I agree. I'm not a fan of that monster symbol. My bike came with them and I took it off immediately. But hey, it's your bike. Do what makes you happy.

Vinyl wrapping is very expensive and VERY HARD to do PROPERLY (without obvious seams). I would not recommend it if you are not experienced with vinyl! You will spend twice as much as a paint job and most likely not be very thrilled with the result.
