There is an airbrushing store on the Whitehorse pike in Stratford across from Shady's( shady mcgruffs bar) It's worth a shot. Hope this helps.

you could try to get a hold of whome on sixfoot tiger, he does some really nice work. it appears he's not racing anymore but he still my be doing some painting.

you could also try d&k hobbies in cherryhill. debbie does have some custom jobs there. a couple of people that work there do custom work.

If you want I can contact a guy who is local who I race with in the onroad scene. He does excellent work. Be aware, pricing on custom painted bodies tends to sometimes become somewhat pricey due to the time (primarily time!) and materials used based on the request of the individual.

One of the guys I used to race with used to charge between $80-$120 for a body. I am not saying it will cost you that much, just want to make you aware of the possibility of the body expense being higher than you might think it would be.

Here is an example of how pricing goes;

Body = $25.00
5 colors of different paint on the body = $25.00 (calculated at $5.00 per bottle of paint.)
Masking materials = maybe $10.00

As you can see, just in materials we are at $60.00 and we have not even touched the body yet to even start to work on it! Based on the intricacies involved with the design, it may take 4-6 hours or more to design, mask and paint. Now, think about what you do for a living and how much you make an hour. Add that (4-6 hours) to it and hopefully you can see how the prices escalate. I am not trying to scare you, just making sure you don't get "sticker shock" if you get someones' price and you feel it is totally out of line.
