even your local bodyshop can do a great paintjob,
you dont have to remove the old finish if it is not peeling off, some chips and scratches is easy to carefull sand smooth,
why not have the bike frame dis-assembled and take it to a bodyshop with the pictures you have in mind.
once they pick up the frame and realize this is no toy they will take your seriously.
my frame is going to the painter tomorrow and the price is 200, metallic and only one color, I stripped it to bare metal and I will tape the chrome parts(steel frame)
being a carbon frame you may want to prep it yourself, sanding and taping.
Car painters paint EVERY DAY, and are experts of the craft.
