He has painted several Kestrel KM40's for us, and they are awesome. He does amazing detail work with flames and all kinds of prints. He is also the person Lance Armstrong turns to for tech advice and ride position adjustments, so he has a reputation for his work. You can also try They do amazing work, and have a special section about painting carbon frames.

Don't you dare take it to a house of Bondo.

Seriously, any good frame painter can do it. Joe Bell in Sandy Eggo, North East Paint in upstate NY (link via, Trek (if it's a Trek and you have lots of $$$), or the guy in Santa Cruz that paints for Calfee Seen his fade jobs? They're mysto (surf-speak for completely mystic).
