Looking For Good Custom Paint Shop In SC

Is there anyone on this forum that can reccomend a good paint shop in the Greenville (upstate) South Carolina area that can handle a body off paint job with custom paint like ghost flames, etc...? I'm just not set up with the tools or enough finances to learn as I go with the paint work.
Thanks for any input.
Ed

Hey Ed,
which ones have you looked into so far? Theres one in Easley that I think does custom work and I may be able to track down a couple of old friends that did some custom paint for my motorcycles.

Hey Dave, I've checked with most of the bigger shops and they all seem to be only doing collision\insurance work due to the time vs money thing. One shop had done a great PPG job on a Jeep, but no longer does the custom work either. I've been told of someone in the Cleveland SC area (above Marietta on 26 near hwy. 11) but havnt had time to look for him. I have someone coming by this weekend who has started a body & paint shop on the side...works for a body shop by day also. Looking forward to seeing if he can do what I want on the truck. I was told that Greg Portor has a custom paint shop and does great work, but havnt followed up yet to check on costs $$$.
I have been working on this truck for apx. 17 months and just hate to settle for an O.K. paint job....but I dont have $10,000 for paint as well. I'll post back this weekend when I get a feel for the guy coming by on Friday...
Ed
