Need new painter and airbrush artist

Looking for an airbrush artist / car painter to fix (repaint) my drag car. I had it recently done but it was not what was agreed to nor wanted. I have to get it all repainted and new airbrush artwork done.

This is a 1972 Camaro setup for drag racing. The theme is B-17s of WWII. It is dedicated to my dad's bomber group, the 351st out of Polebrook England, from 1942-1945. All four squadrons are represented in the tribute.

The work done on it was supposed to be airbrushed (as in "art") but instead it was decaled/stenciled and then clearcoated before I even saw and approved it all. Needless to say the place/guy that botched it won't fix or refund the $15,440 that was paid for the paint job. So looking for someone to redo and do it right.

Any ideas or recommendations for a reputable and quality artist/shop? I am in the WA area but am not opposed to out of state for the right person.

I don't know of anyone locally.
Seriously...
Call Counts Customs in Vegas if you want some awesome airbrush work done. If you've ever seen that show on the tube, that "Horny Mike" guy does awesome airbrush work. I've seen lots of military tributes done by them. Who knows, may be your car too, would be on TV.

OK, thanks for the reply.

I am looking for a place that maybe doesn't hang their hat on TV. I tried that already and the guy, with a supposed big rep, totally butchered my car. Dunno about that except it isn't an endorsement of professionalism that's for sure.

I went to that Mike Lavallee guy in Snohomish and Killer Paint shop. Was the most unpleasant experience ever. A real nightmare.

This is what I need redone to fix my car :

ruinedcarpaint.com

There are the photos of the screwed up job as well as photos and copy of the written contract (that was totally not honored). The photos tell the story better than anything else.

Thanks for the reply though. I will take a look at the site and gallery.
