Vintage Bodywork in Houston

Hi all,

I'm making progress with my Kawasaki F8 restoration and will be nneding to get the bodywork painted soon. I need someone who does standard paintwork, i want it as close to out of the facotry as possible..

Does anyone have someone they can recommend?

I see plenty of Painters in Houston, but most seem to specialize in Custom paint and if its the same as in the UK, most Custom guys don;t want to touch restoration work with a barge pole!

Have you checked out hot rod shops? At least where I was living in Florida, hot rod shops would farm out their bodywork to specialty shops, or else had an "in-house" bodywork/paint man, and lots of them are into bikes as well.
I would think if you did the research on the paint code you need and base coats, they would be amenable to doing the work, but again that is just me experience in another state, local customs may be different.

If you get me a picture, and a panel to match the paint. I can replicate the factory scheme for you.
