Default Looking for a good paint shop to do my 240 in the Raleigh, NC area - Raleigh/Triangle/Wake Forest

Hey y'all

I'm looking to get my '91 240 painted, and am looking for a really high-end shop to do it in the Raleigh/Triangle/Wake Forest area of NC (i.e. Raleigh, Wake Forest, Durham, maybe Chapel Hill or Cary but further north is better i.e. Wake Forest).

I want the job done really well, which is why I'm not looking to take it to a crap place like Maaco where they use cheap paint and can't mask to save their lives.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Got a super one here in W-S but expensive. Friend has a 67 mustang in another that SEEMS to be doing it right, stripping down to metal, etc. and only charging him about $2500...which is a steal (no pun intended) for that level of work...i need to actually SEE his car in progress and assess if it is REALLY worth it. guess it just depends on how much you want to spend. if it is a car you plan to keep forever and has either a LOT of restoration done or particular sentimental value, sometimes you can sell and buy a better one for the difference....course i prefer buying unpainted cars cause a paint job can hide a LOT of sins... hard to say if you could ever get your $$$ out of it IF you invest in a super paint job.
