Hello everyone,

I've been painting planes for many years now having got my start as a base painter for Piper Aircraft, and have a custom shop located in Lake City, Fl. I use the new Dupont Aviation finishes. I am certified in PPG, House of Kolor as well and also have paint jobs out there from over 8 years ago using Imron - and they still look as good as the day I painted them. If I can be of help to anyone, I'll be happy to offer what advice I can.

Hi Sean,

I'd be more than happy to get you a quote for your Cessna. Please give me a call to discuss the needs of the plane so that I can quote you properly.

I think I'd like my Buttercup painted like this... Simple... Classy

My base color is White... Painting the trim in Red & Blue is my plan
