I could not find the latest recommendation for Star jet in Columbus, Oh. So here is a more recent recommendation from this thread.
A couple of years ago I had a tag tire blow. Not only did it do the damage pictured, the support for the wheel fairing between the rear tires was torn away.
Besides the pictured damage, I was told no damage history to the coach by PO. There was damage to the front supports holding the fairings on each side of the gen.
I have had 3 quote to repair the same described damage.
Star Jet did the work, out the door, for $1800.00.
As others have stated, great price for good work.
AND.Randy/others. they are race car people. Customer service above no other. I am planning to get a "fresh face" on the front of the bus in the spring. Fix chips, buff out, clear coat, etc. at a great price.

I painted my Bird...I started in May working evenings and weekends and finished up early September. I think I spend around 1600.00 in supplies. A lot of it went down to bare metal but not all of it. Some day's I wish I took more time and stripped it all to bare metal. 8 years later my clear is starting to peel on the top. I will be fixing that this spring. Check out the link on the bottom....you will see what your in for. It's not perfect but very presentable.

Nick...

You've got something to be proud of for sure. The diligence you put in really shows.

Nothing substitutes for pride of ownership. Beautiful! For those not as talented and headed to the SW (or Q)...

From a blog I follow: http://www.beginningfromthismorning....ck_from_paint/. Entire bus cost them $8k, just across the border and they provide contact details.
