    I would ask @SOULfulFROG via PM. He is a recognized Frogskin and Holbrook painter and has branched a bit into a few other models..Jupiter comes to mind. He may be willing to take on or at least discuss your project with you. He gets to be busy at times, he has a full-time gig and a family so approach him with that in mind. He may also veto Racing Jackets right away for a very valid reason, but he'll be able to tell you why!

    I am speaking from a TOTALLY biased point of view because I am a proud owner / wearer of 4 of his Holbrook creations and one of his original Frogskins. And I am not the least bit ashamed to stump for him.

    :)

    I believe what you are looking for is someone who does hydrodipping. I have had a few done in the past , including a Jawbreaker in a similar camo pattern.
    That's what Optiek Van Gorp uses for most of their builds (like the one in the pic ).

    Which shop? Dr chop? He doesn't do hydroprinting.His stuff is paint...awesome paint.

    If you're talking about Optiek Van Gorp, yeah they do hydroprinting but they are on the pricier end (but they do pretty cool stuff)

    Depending on where you are located you might be able to work with someone local for less money.

    PM me and I can give you more details.

    As far as lens replacement, depends on which frame you are talking about. In some you have to be more careful than others to avoid paint or print chipping (Radar, Radarlock). In others because of the way lenses are mounted there is not that much concern (Jawbones, Jawbreakers).
