Default Paint shop Sebastian, Fl

Does anybody have any experience with Aircrafters Refinishing in Sebastian, Fl ?

Going to be at the airport in April for a few weeks and my new RV8 needs paint.

Jon, he's our go-to guy in the Treasure Coast area. He's just getting going in his new shop, but several of the local guys plan on using him in the near future. Very good reputation. I don't personally have any experience with him but many of my friends recommend him. Generally, it's always a good idea for the owner to remove all of the removable stuff prior to painting and then re-assembling--as opposed to letting the shop guys do it. Owner is Michael Dodson.

Hi guys,
Mike with the paint shop is in my old hangar. which used to be 2 bums aircraft inc. I have closed that business and sold the hangar. Mike is doing some beautiful paint work. He has done a few RV's and he painted the last RV-14 we helped build. nothing but a nice outstanding guy with good work to show for it.
I hope you are able to work with him.
see you guys later,
Nathan
