If you've had your Trek OCLV repainted can you give me some info on who did it and if you were happy with the results? Any info on pricing would be helpful. Feel free to post a pic too.

I just had mine done a month ago by a painter who works for one of our local major car dealerships. He did a three colour fade (burgundy-purple-black)which turned out excellently. The cost including my local LBS' tear down and assembly was CAD450.00.

If you choose a local painter make sure he has experience with carbon fibre. A local Corvette shop might be a good place to start.

I'm not sure of the cost for just the paint because it was part of a frame repair (which cost $680; broken head tube due to an accident). It was perfect, as you'd expect. I got my choice of paint schemes from their catalog (and chose Postal white). Now, with Project One, you could really customize. Worth a call to them.
