Looking for recomendations - good paint repair shop

A bike fell against my ST1300 and damaged the paint on one of the panniers.

ICBC has OK'd a repair (but will not replace the lid).

The lid is glass quality paint upper, and textured molded plastic lower, but is all one piece. Whoever does it is going to have to be really good at:

a/ matching colour

b/ not leaving any witness marks, masking etc. on the lower part

c/ removing and replacing the lid without f'ing up the hinges

Any recommendations for really good spray shop?

Jim Waybourne, who is now at Trev Deely Harley on Boundary, arranged for some paint work to match original on my VFR. I don't know who he sent it out to but I was extremely pleased with the result and the price. Can't tell the new next to the old.
