GTR Painter
« on: September 19, 2019, 06:22:45 PM »
Scott's Custom Body, in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, is well-known for his GTR painting skills. However, I tried calling him today, and got an error message indicating the phone # (920-683-9690) is not valid. Web search shows same number, as well. Anyone have his current contact info, or failing that, another reputable painter? I'm in Athens, GA, but can ship the parts.

Randy Marble, of Marble Motors did my 350 GTR and did an outstanding job.  He matched a NOS part exactly, and used powder coat for primer.  The powder coat primer eliminates the problem of poor paint adhesion to the chrome tank.

Not cheap, but outstanding quality.

Did you manage to reach Scott at all, Nysz1b? Did that shop close down?

My brother passes through Manitowoc frequently so I’ve asked him to drive by the shop and see if it still appears to be in business.

Wampler: Still have not heard if the shop is open or not.

Thanks, Old Smokey. Keep me posted.
