Default Recommend a painter around Ann Arbor for windshield frame paintjob.

My windshield frame is arriving tomorrow. Can anybody recommend a painter around the Ann Arbor Area. I'd like to drop it off for paint this week. Called a couple of collision places and came up with quotes of $150-$200. I'd prefer not to pay much more than $150. Thanks in advance for any help.

Is there such a thing as a good quality rattle can gloss black paint to use on it? Or just use Krylon or Rustoleum? I could use the extra $ for an Aussie Locker anyway.

Duplicolor makes kickass spray bombs, check out an auto body supplier as well, see if they have anything.
