Northern IL, need painter recommendations

Doing a full frame off with lots of new sheetmetal. My body guy does very clean work but is only prone to show quality paint finishing. I would like to find someone in the Chicago, Chicago suburbs, DeKalb, Rockford area that can do a very good factory quality paint job for a reasonable cost.

I know reasonable is a relative term but I have recieved paint quotes for $15k. That is more than I can justify for paint alone. Ideas of pricing and/or painter recommendations???

If you can make it up to Cudahy, WI...Authentic Automotive does fantastic work! They were actually just on the local news, so there's some vids on the page as well.
