Recommendation for painter in the Boston area?

My tank (black with white and red pinstripes) has a couple dings (...that I am ashamed to admit I put there). The pinstripes have also been partly polished off. I just relined it with POR-15.

Does anyone happen to have a recommendation for a paint shop in the Boston area (New York, CT, RI also fine)? Ideally someone who knows airheads so I can rest assured the pinstripes will come out correctly.

Also, I'd like it clearcoated. Is this blasphemy? It seems like it would make the finish a lot more durable--modern clear coats are quite hard.

This can wait till fall or winter, no rush. I imagine shops are less busy come bad weather.

I would look for the pinstripe artist first and have him recommend the paint shop. Almost any paint shop can paint a tank to your standards.... pin stripping, not so much
