Frame refinishers in the Seattle area - anybody?

If anyone can help identify a few frame refinishers in the Seattle area I would most appreciate it. My normal guy is swamped and I need a refinish done in time for mid-to-late-June. Unfortunately this frame has been sitting for two months plus and it's time to get it back on the road.

I would say good luck finding anyone reputable who can meet that schedule, anywhere.

Check the Rodriguez frame shop (R&E Cycles, U-District). They may be swamped too, but they do really good work (they built my current frame).

If you want to go the powdercoat route I can recommend Kens powdercoat in Fredrickson/Spanaway. They did a two step color on my wifes mixte and it turned out fabulous.
