Who can paint my M4 rewind knob?

I recently bought a BP M4 that came with a chrome M4 rewind knob. I just installed a BC M6 rewind knob to keep the camera usable while I look for someone who can strip the chrome and nickle - then repaint and fill the markings.

Is there anyone out there that can (or does) repaint just parts, not entire cameras?

I know there's a guy in Japan who repaints M Camera's but I don't remember
his name, Ken Hanson From Ken Hanson Photo had some done up and they
were great.

Ask Nobbylon. You posted pictures of your M4's in his thread.

This should be a standard stocked Leica part, since the company sells BP cameras with this rewind.

I think I found someone to help me, YEAY RFF !!

The BP rewind knobs for the newer Leica's are different, the do not have the curved arrow or the R markings (the M4 did, I believe that went away with the M4-2).
