Painters in the Illinois Area....

I'm looking for leads on painters in the Illinois area.... have a project that was offered to me, but thinking that I might not be the best painter to tackle it, just limited to what I can do in terms of size. It's a bagger Harley, Road King, lots of pieces... but, no fairing.

Needs to be done 'Low Rider'/70's style - big flake and candies... would be a great project, but my painting setup is very much on the small-scale hobby level.... helmets/small tanks/and small fenders....

Any ideas / leads are appreciated!

Thanks!

              Atta-Boy Dave! Later Jay p.s. ain't no bugs in my paint. I swear! Try painting outside, at dusk, in Florida, with a slight breeze.

              That was me with the GIANT MOTH story... Funny to recount now, but I was a cussin' fool back when it happened! Sitting there watching this moth flying around crazily, (no doubt the laq fumes... more

                Grump, I was thinking that it might have been you, or Doc. Plus, those moths seem to be made of powder... if you do anything to try and get them out of the paint, it just gets a lot worse...heh...... more

                  "A smooth sea never made a skilled mariner". As for cussing, Grump I never figured you for anything but puppies and kittens....... Later Jay
