Paint shop in Colorado?

Things are really coming together for my project this winter sourcing parts and lining up shop space for the work. I'm still trying to find a good paint shop -- will be a complete interior/exterior respray -- near Colorado Springs, CO. Does anyone have any recommendations on a Colorado paint shop? I would also love to support a small business / independent painter if anyone knows of Colorado-based folks with the talent to paint a vehicle.

Thank you

I'm close to pulling the trigger on a truck and was thinking the same thing. I'm in the Springs and would like to find a local paint shop. I'll watch this tread and update if I find a shop or get recommendations.

I'll let you know if I find a good shop! Just sent you a PM -- it'd be great to network with a fellow Colorado Springs local.

Arapahoe mechanical and collision in aurora co.

Bit of a drive but they do great work at a reasonable price.

Tell Larry Dave with the orange 90 he painted says hi if you use them.

Thanks! I just sent them a message. I'll keep looking for somewhere closer to the Springs, but I appreciate the lead!

When I rebuilt my 110, I was living in Eastern Washington State, near Idaho. I found a guy who did paint and sandblasting work for the Agriculture and Forest Products industries and auto/big rig work on the side. He was a born perfectionist. I asked lots of questions about how stuff should be prepped and did it. I disassembled everything and did all of the prep work myself, which was an enormous bear of a job. He used PPG Concept, a single stage system. My time line was flexible, such that he was able to schedule the work during his slow time. It turned out way better than I could have ever hoped for.

The old guys with skills may not need your work. IMO, find a skilled old hand, be patient, courteous and respectful and you'll be very happy with the outcome. During my many visits to the shop prior to the work and during/post, I saw him turn away 'paying customers' because their demeanor (no offense intended). Good luck.
