MC painters?

I need some refrences for guys that do good paint jobs on MC plastics and give good fair prices. all i need done is one solid color and no body work repair.

i would do it myself but its a new bike so it has to be done in a shop and not by a shadetree painter.

just try doin it yourself and if you dont like it then sand it down and take it somewhere,, it shouldnt be that hard if you take your time, use the expensive paint and follow the directions, ive seen lots of garage painted bikes and they look good if you do it right. :biggthumpup:

Re: MC painters?

If it's race fairings, do it yourself. If it's your plastics, get that done.

Re: MC painters?
