Hi All,

Anyone know where to get a good paintjob around here? Nothing special, just want to get my plastics painted solid colors and clearcoated over decals. I was thinking of taking them to Maaco or somesuch place, but thought someone might have experience. Everybody advertising themselves as motorcycle painters are Harley guys. I just need someone who can paint plastics. Preferably on the cheap. No way I'm paying $700+ to get six pieces of plastic painted one color, 'specially when car places do a whole cage for that (or less).

Thanks,

Cyrus

Not even close to being true!!!!! It is easy to find one that will paint a Hardley tank or something solid, but not plastic.

I am not sure if it is in Clinton or not, I just remember the name McCartneys on a card a guy at another paint shop gave me...because they did not paint bikes there Crapper...he recommneded them, I will get the number on Monday.

I went to 8 different places and they would not even touch the plastic!!!! I just ended up giving up on the local scene and sending it to EMPIREGP.com and feel I got a good deal and the tail looks great!! Do you really want a guy that does not do a lot of plastic work painting your stuff?? Shipping is not too much and Bob does an excellent job with the repair and paint!!! I may send the plastics out next winter to get everything redone.

Now you're getting the bashing spirit. Just leave the head and reach arounds for the curb monkeys.
