I'm also on the look out for a place. Maybe a panelbeater wil be able to help us out?...... I'm just wanting matte black then get a graphic designer/sign writer to apply text to the frame; I don't want a sticker, they just peel off as it happening to my bike now.

Guys just be carefull of using anyone to spray frame as it is very different to a car.I am from the auto industry and am getting a friend to spray my frame(he has done many bike frames).Depending what metal it is, he says I have to have my alu frame bead blasted first (NOT sand blasted),it damages the frame.There is a special primer for alu.If you put the stickers on over the paint and then put a clear coat over the stickers wont peel.

I'm pretty sure I saw an add for a frame sprayer at Cyclesphere in Durban. Why not phone them and ask, or any bike shop for that matter? I've been spraying for a long time, furniture as well as cars... I bought a Raleigh namib frame purely to spray and see what happens. Will have to be in January though, but that does give me the time to prep the frame.
