Looking for a Painter

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
With all the nice paint jobs at the last race I figured I should invest in looking the part. Can anyone suggest a good painter? SO

Nick at the "Bawdy Shop" did mine - BJ4 (avatar) & X-6. He does excellent work. He is associated with Fastcats.

I've had alot of my touring cars painted by Nick at the Bawdy Shop - he does an excellent job. I have also gotten a body done by Clint (Bwadd) and he too does excellent work.

We are actually quite lucky in the GTA to have so many tallented air-brush artists available to us.

Whichever one you choose, make sure you give them very clear details of what you are looking for in your paint scheme, that way you avoid disappointment.

I will say Mark Hopcraft as well. I know he has painted a few bodies for Eat Dirt Racing Inc and he has painted all of mine.

He is simply an astounding painter!
