Do you warranty your work?
I stand 100% behind every paint job. Your satisfaction is very important to me. Your paint and finish is guaranteed not to fade, peel, crack, bubble or delaminate for a period of 36 months from the date of delivery. The warranty is only good on complete paint jobs (paint jobs that we complete, start to finish).
Limitations: There are no materials that are 100% safe against fuel. If you spill fuel on your paint job, wipe it off immediately. Damage caused by fuel vapors or spills can not be covered under my warranty. I will cover the cost of materials and labor to repair your paint job, but you will be responsible for shipping charges. The warranty does not cover damage resulting from impact chips, owner neglect, gas or oil tank failure, riding accidents, or third-party repairs. We are not responsible for labor charges to remove and re-install painted parts.
All warranty claims must be made in writing, including a brief description of the problem and the date of origin.
How many coats of clear do you spray?
I generally spray four to six coats of clear. You can opt for a double dose of clear if you wish. This means that after your parts are cleared and left to dry, we water sand and add an additional four to six coats of clear before buffing and polishing. This offers maximum protection, depth and gloss. Helmets, $150.00. Cycles, $300.00.
How much do you charge for shipping?
Shipping charges vary. Generally, what you pay to send the item to my shop is what I charge to send the item back. The best thing to do is to send a return shipping label along with your helmet/mask/bike parts, etc. The only additional charge is for insurance, and that price varies according the the value of the shipment. If you are planning to buy your helmet or after-market parts from an online vendor you can save a few dollars on shipping by having the items drop shipped from the vendor directly to my shop. I will carry helmets in the near future, but for now you will have to send me yours to get painted.
Do you ship to military bases?
I ship anywhere UPS, USPS or Fed Ex will go.
Do you provide concept sketches?
I can, but there is a charge of $75.00 for helmets and $225.00 for motorcycles.
What subjects can you paint?
Pretty much anything. Eagles, wolves, skulls, fantasy, portraits, flames, true fire, graphics, etc. I encourage you to look through my portfolio to get an understanding of my style and skill level. The images on my site represent my style of paining. You project will be consistent with the art work you find here.
So, how long does it take?
I am generally backed up three to six weeks at a time, with late Winter/early Spring being the busiest time of the year. If you want to have your bike or helmet ready for Spring, I encourage you to get in in early.
Can I visit your shop?
Yes, but please phone ahead so that I can be ready for you. Shop hours are by appointment only.
