GVA: Anyone here able to do this kind of painting?

Was wondering if anyone knows a bodyshop that can do this type of paint fade in Vancouver area? I'm looking for something like what they did to the CSL trunk in this pic.

that can be upward of 1k man...even paint alone is about 500 for normal body shop since cf is hard to work with.

Apparently the fade is really hard to do hence not that many shops are willing to do it.

When I got one of my pieces painted like that on my old e46 I had no idea it required that much work but the body shop I went to did it at the cost of a normal paint job.

Even then, the fade on that e92 M3 isn't that great - transition from white to black is too fast.

This is still the best fade I have seen on AW.

The shop was called BRIGHOUSE but it has closed down for quite some time now, its where the No.3 Rd Suzuki is now. So sad, I lost touch with all their paint guys too - the guy who does the paint did a crazy candy job on his truck.
