An approach I have used for painting is to talk to hot rodder's and the shops they frequent. They usually know where to get the good work done.

Good luck on the mandrel bends. You may have to buy pieces and have them fab it. Last time I checked(it's been awhile) the closest one to me was a 4.5 hour drive. And I live in Austin Tx. Pretty big city. Not even one in Houston or Dallas
