Paint Shop Recommendation (s) in the North East?

Looking to replace our 24 year old paint job (same exact design) on our 1969 E33C.

Like most folks on this website, the plane is our baby and want to make sure we get a top notch paint job. Any paint shop recommendations in the Northeast would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Jon

Thanks for the referral.

Thanks for the suggestion.

FYI, we reached out to them twice and did not hear back.

Appreciate any other suggestions or ideas regarding paint shops in the North East that anyone had a positive experience with.

We need a good data base of paint shops and quality levels.

I have heard good things about the paint shop at the Smoketown Airport in Pennsylvania...

I was recently quoted $24K for a paint job on my G model here in the Atlanta area. Does that sound right?

Steve-

I am thinking there are a lot (like many) variables when you say that you were quoted $xxxxx dollars for a "paint job." What is included in the cost of the "paint job" should be identified. New wing root seals? How many colors? What does the paint design look like (complex)? and a bunch of other variables... Hard to give advice on the cost of a "paint job."

Jon, Flying Colors in Benton, Harbor, Michigan ( KBEH) does very nice work.

A careless paint shop can total an airplane thru improper stripping materials and technique, so you guys are very wise to ask around.

I know of several who used the Smoketown painter with good results. That'd be my recommendation. PlaneCare in HGR is another good recommendation.

I used the guy in Zerbe/Selinsgrove and didn't have a good experience. My ruddervaders needed a second strip and paint....even when instructions for drying and prepping was provided up front. He does good work on experimentals...just not Bonanzas.
