Cheap Painter, can any one recommend??

Hey all,

I finally finished doin the interior on my vl and want to paint it now. The car is white and i just wanna respray the outer shell the factory vl white and the bumpers and moulds asteroid silver. I aint lookin for a expensive job and i aint fussy. $1500 is what i wanna spend, pretty low but once again i aint fussy at all. Can any one recommend someone who has had experience with vl's in sydney preferably a workshop?? thanx all
