I've only used two and been happy with them both but it was a few years ago. One seems to have moved Ipswich way and then there was this one

On the rare occasion I’ve gone down the fucking dulux path, but not often

Motorcycle paintshop - Racepaint UK

Never used them myself but they had painted my Aprilia RSVR Factory prior to me buying it and it was a fab job. I have a mate who uses them a lot too and only has good things to say.

My local painter is the best I have come across but he doesn't advertise, never has - he's just known by the ones in the know 👀 and is always over booked. He's done many special bikes including ex Freddie Spencer GP bikes. I never recommend him as he doesn't need the work and people will likely be grumpy about the lead times. He will be doing my KR1000 project (and yes, I will be queue jumping 😇

Really, I’ve always found Dulux good and we get through a fair bit of it on a refurb. Not so good on bikes though.

I did buy a bike that had a dream machine paint jobby. I don't know if they had the saturday boy doing it but it was of a lower quality than my buds mrs bike, a vfr 400. Thier quality control was quite hit and miss in the early 2000's

My ex Jarrod ‘Jack’ Frost turbo Hayabusa has a Dream Machine paint job, it’s atrocious 😬

I had a DM Repsol Firestorm that was done prior to my ownership.

The paint was so thin, it was translucent.
