Sooooo it has turned out I came into possession of a nice VFR 800 with some high miles but excellent mechanical condition. Bodywork is in good condition (with some scrapes on the bags but nothing serious, no cracks, dents in tank, etc- very straight body) only thing is it has a 10 y.o. OEM red, now kinda "orange-ey" color to it, you know, that faded Honda Red. I'd like to swap it over to maybe a nice black with a clear coat. Can someone recommend an 'inexpensive' painter in the NY Area? I live in Westchester. If someone capable is an ameatuer that's fine too. Or a chop shop in the Bronx? I dont mind doing prep work and paying for the materials and of course paying someone to do the work. I just don't have the space and aptitude to do this myself. Hard to paint without a heated garage/shop. Other course may be just to spray paint it "stealth radar truck bed liner" myself in the carport. Thanks folks.
