I'm going to need an old single colour GT resprayed soon. I can obviously get the decals from Gil but I'm not sure who to go with on the paint itself. Has anyone used anyone recently that they could recommend ? I used Argos a few years back but wasn't that impressed at the time. It's a steel frame and an old 1992 bike.

Try No Quarter paint (based Leics way)

James is the chap you need to speak to - he did a great job of a Hot and Dogs Bolx.

I wouldn't recommend them. Poor comms. Ok job. Lucky it was cheap. And took 11 months to return to me. But some like them.

I used FATCREATIONS who turned it around in 3/4mths last year. Their backlog is so great now its around a year. Highly recommended for complex or iconic paint jobs that have to be just right.
