Painters & Mechanics - 2 Question in 1 post, wow :)

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by pgm, Aug 26, 2004.

  1. Hi,

    I'm new and I'm sorry for being a nuisance..

    Question 1: Painters in Melbourne
    I crashed by bike and need my fairings painted 1 colour, black or white whatever is cheaper. The fairings does have a couple of cracks and bumps though.. I have a fairly small budget $300- does one know where to get some cheap paint & repair work done.

    Question 2: Mechanics in Melbourne
    I'm after reputable mechanic that works a lot with 2 stroker racers :) Can anyone suggest a place, I've been to so much dodgy Mechanics and need some advice.

    Thanks you and Sorry.

  2. Eh, no need to be sorry dude, asking questions is what its all about ;) Information sharing...

    Welcome to Netrider!!!!

    Sorry, I can't help with any answers though, but I'm sure plenty of others will shortly :)
  3. Hi pgm , welcome to the forum . I know of a very good spray painter up in reservoir who deals only with motorbike fairings . I highly recommend him. When i get home i'll post up a number to call and he will give u a rough idea over the phone .
  4. I'd highly recommend my mechanic, but he'll be in the Alfred for the next few months after he got cleaned up by a car last week :(

    I'll be keeping an eye on this thread in the hope of finding another good one though.

    Chemanics.......if you have lots $$ to throw at them, PTR (Phil Tainton Racing) "Does amazing things with your pistons"
    They are awesome but come at a premium.
    They are in Wantirna Up the road from Knox, opposite the brick manufacturing place on Stud Rd.

  7. Thanks Guys,

    I think Orginal Finish will cost me over $300 for a paint job :(

    As for mechanics, PTR are so busy :) I'm itching for a ride.

    Thanks Again.
