Painting an rc body is fairly easy. Why don't you paint it yourself?

A one color paint job takes less than 30mins to do.

then you put the decals on the outside of the body after you have removed the overspray film.

I believe you can buy pre-painted bodies if you're in that much of a hurry. Other than that,do you have the body or are you wanting to just have someone buy it and the paint,paint and decal it and cut it out and ship it to you?

I could possibly help but I bet you could find someone closer too.

Possibly ask at the local hobby shop if they know anyone.

What do you want done?

What body?

What type of decals?

My guess it would be close to $60 for me to do a body for you.

Those 2 decal sheets would have to be ordered unless they were in stock at the painters LHS.
