A good painter should be able to match the color. Not sure how durable it would be though, probably about like stock.

Powder coating would be the way to go for good durability.

If possible go for the powder coat. Way more durable. I say possible, because it my depend on your buget. I wanted to get my '03 PC'd but the guy here wanted 3 bills to do it. That was beyond my budget, so I had the color matched and painted it myself for $30.

So you want to pay someone $200 to paint your frame with spray cans? And thats just the labor? :busted:
If you're going to go that route, buy the cans and do it yourself. Scuff and shoot, that simple. But expect it to wear quickly.
Powder coating is the correct way and is what the factory uses. Around here (seattle) a frame can be done for $150, any color you want. For loose parts I pay $75 for whatever fits comfortably in a 3x5 rack. No special friend deal, just a straight walk-in quote.
