What's the best way to paint a 13 year old Cannondale frame?

Auto body shop? Frame builder? Back to Cannondale?

Recommendations?

I'd check with a frame builder or Cannondale. I've taken an aluminum frame to a body shop and quotes were very high(200+) because it's aluminum. They say because they need a special primer for aluminum. Another option is to check Powdercoating. I've seen some great Powdercoated finishes and it's cheaper than paint.

www.airglowpainting.com or Dave Sem's Custom Paint and Graphics. The latter is sweet stuff but kinda expensive. Both do great decal replication and OEM quality finish on the paint.
