Pittsburgh area help!!

I am looking for a little help from my Pittsburgh area folks. I am looking for somebody who can do a very nice custom paint job on my new Camaro when it shows up. It is just going to be a single stripe, but I would like to be sure I go somewhere I can trust...

Also any goo ddyno tuners left, my guy closed shop in Washington. And with my Turbo kit going on very early, I am going to need a tune!!

Thanks for any help

when you are ready get a hold of me. . . I'm having my buddy to some custom airbrushing. . .

He also paints.

I'll let him know. He just moved to a new job but does the air brushing on the side. . . His boss also lets him use the paint booth at work for personal jobs too.

Go to Tom Henry.

He's Little Weasel on this site.

He'll be doing some paint work for me on my SS.

Oh, and he's in Bakersfield.

Fred Jacobs Auto Service in Utica, NY has a chassis dyno. I know it's about six hours from Pittsburgh, but you didn't have any other responses for a dyno so I thought I'd throw it out there.

Looking to probably get a part painted, and my stripes painted and vinyl removed..

Recommendations?
Local body shop here I was going to ask, as I know they do quite a bit of paint but not sure so much on the custom/stripe department.

Also know Tom Henry gets them painted, but I did not get my car from them.. and heard mixed things dealing with that situation.

Based on my experience with Tom, I can't imagine anything "mixed" about him. He's a straight shooter and I'm sure he wouldn't hassle you because you didn't buy your car there. Just my .02.
