Sidekick Paint Job Idea?

OK, so I've seen various kinds of flame jobs.

I want an ICE JOB. My question is, where do you go to find good artists, that can do something like this? I don't have the time to go out finding people with body art and asking "who did your flame job", and trying to track them down, so I hope I get lucky here.

Look in the yellow pages of your local phone book and look for auto body shops. They might be able to do it, and if not they will probably be able to tell you who can and where to call. Just keep in mind that something like this isn't going to be cheap. Or, you can just drive up here and I'll do it for you! [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

Go talk to the paint supply stores in town, see who they recommend. That's how I found a guy when I wanted some pinstriping done. The counter guys at the paint stores will be pretty in tune with whoever is doing custom work locally.

Re: Sidekick Paint Job Idea?

Dresser is way on the western side of the state. RIGHT on the Minnesota border. Dresser is a small town of about 614 people. But Minneapolis/St. Paul is only about 60 miles (one hour drive about) southwest from us. A more popular town that is right next to Dresser is St. Croix Falls. We are about 60 miles from River Falls, and about 110 miles from Eau Claire. Got any relatives in this area you are planning on driving up to visit? We could go wheeling! AWESOME trails around here!

Re: Sidekick Paint Job Idea?

Bob- it depends on what kind of paint work you want done to the kick. Are you looking for paint or airbrushing? the local paint supply store is a good place to start. ALSO alot of tattoo artists do airbrushing so that as well be a possibility for your to persue. PHOTOS when done please!

Well, Rae, the time is probably coming soon, when I will have to stop talking to you, until next summer.

Hockey season is just around the corner!

Just kidding! So um, if I might ask, how many tats do you have?

Re: Sidekick Paint Job Idea?

Just one more idea Bob, the best place to get that kind of work done around here is the Custom Motorcycle shops. They are the best in this area. My father-in-law had his custom chopper sprayed with the American Flag done with some type of sparkle paint. I don't think I have ever seen a better paint job. He said the price was "reasonable" too. That's about all those guys do, so they get good at it, and they usually have pictures for you to look at to get ideas from. A nice "flat" and big surface like the kick would be a breeze for them. Just my 2 pennies.
This isn't his, but I thought it was creative.
