Rufus the Restomod

WIP I'm modifying this RuFa Steel frame to be my new commuter/ chilleur ride. The frame lended itself to a new group set since it didn't have a FD mount or even mounts for downtube shifters. I replaced the fork and am currently adding braze ons for cable guides, internally routing the brake cable und repairing the old seat clamp. How would YOU paint it ? (seriously, cant decide - send help.)

60's RuFa Sport Size 56

Soma Track Fork 1" Threadless / Tange Seiki

Crankset/Bottom Bracket:
SRAM Red

Pedals:
Flats / Eggbeaters

Drivetrain/Cog/Chainring/Chain:

Derailleurs/Shifters:

Handlebars/Stem:
Ritchey Classic Venturemax / 1 1/8 alloy stem with adapter (might look into something custom made in the future)

Saddle/Seatpost:

Brakes:

This is rad. You need some good inspiration for a paint job though! I love the word "Chilleur"

Thank you. The paint is driving me nuts. I want something simple but not too simple... We'll see.
