Midwest painter? Des Moines

Anyone know a good painter in the Midwest bf with reasonable prices! I tried painting it last year but got too much orange peel in garage so wanting it redone and a little body work done to straighten gaps.

Jeff Kleiner is in Bloomington, Indiana, but he’s really booked up! The Saint Louis crowd may have someone!

5.0id,
Sorry, but but I have no interest in doing a repaint on top of someone else's work.

Have you tried wet sanding w/ 600-800-1000 paper to reduce the orange peel?

Way too aggressive...that will get you through the peel...but will probably take all of the clear with it
