A custom painted SUV isn't something you see everywhere. It all started when we decided to put a TD Customs decal on the back of my car - a white 2008 GMC Envoy Denali. I figured I might as well advertise a little while I'm driving around town. That could have been it, but we got to thinking, wouldn't it be cool if it were a little custom though? After all, custom paint jobs are what we're all about.
Initially, my idea was to simply sand off the clear and apply a new clear coat with rainbow metal flake. The same metal flake that is on Tim's shop truck. We've painted ...
Customizing your paint job has never been easier!
Decals offer tons of different options for customizing your paint job.
At TD Customs, we are able to design something on the computer, print it on a plotter and use the vinyl cut out as a stencil or template for what you'd like painted. A popular option is painting a logo or custom image on your vehicle, motorcycle, helmet, etc. It also opens the door to many other design possibilities. A paint job can be turned into so much more with the flexibility that decals allow.

Fade Paint Job on Harley-Davidson Parts
One of the recent motorcycle paint jobs we've done was on these Harley- Davidson parts. The owner went with a custom fade paint job using candy apple red. The pieces go from a lighter candy apple red on top to a darker cherry red on the bottom.
You can see how the colors go from light to dark. Both shades of the red look vivid and eye catching. The variation is visible both outside in the sun or in the shade.
How a fade paint job is done depends on the colors being used. The owner wanted it to be a subtle red fade ...
You don't see two toned SUV paint jobs everywhere. That's why they're so cool. They look custom, while still looking classy and fairly simple.
This SUV is an older model Chevy Trailblazer. It was originally all blue, and nothing out of the ordinary. For this two tone SUV paint job, we kept the blue on the bottom and painted the top silver.
Painting just the top or bottom part of a vehicle is a good way to change up the look of your vehicle on a budget. Keeping one color the same lets us not have to paint the inners & door jambs. This means a lot less work on ...
A 1971 Chevy Camaro was just in for a restoration and paint job. When it came in, it was white and needed some attention. There was some rust, as well as body damage that needed to be corrected. Here is what the Camaro looked like Before...
Taking care of the rust and body damage takes up a good portion of the restoration process. The length of time and amount of work needed depends on the condition. Some imperfections are easier to correct than others.
When the body work is all done, we prime the car and get it prepped for paint. The first thing we always ...

The '68 Plymouth Satellite classic restoration we just wrapped up needed overall body work and fresh, factory original paint. The body was in moderate condition, but we had to repair a lot of rust. This entails grinding out existing rust, cutting it out, and replacing the old steel with new steel. From there, it gets smoothed over and fitted perfectly into place. We also spent a good amount of time sanding the exterior body to get the panels straight.
The paint color is the original paint from 1968; a deep green color that looks almost black in the shade. It's ...
The TD Customs shop truck got a custom painted makeover!
Before the new paint job, it was a typical red and gray Chevy S-10 truck with some chipped paint and body flaws. When we decided to paint it, we repaired body damage and swapped doors with a parts truck we've had. This is how it looked before...
There wasn't a ton of work to do on the truck. We weren't giving it the amount of attention we'd give to customer vehicles because we wanted to get it done quickly. This one's not a show truck, but the body is straight, and it looks awesome going down the ...

About a year ago, we painted a batch of red marble motorcycle parts. The very base color was silver. We then painted the vivid red color on top, and did the marble effect to it. This involves using plastic wrap to lift some of the second coat off, revealing some of the silver.

This personalized, custom painted helmet is a gift for an employee retiring from a local law firm. His coworkers wanted to give him something special to remember them and the company by. Since he is a big motorcycle rider, they decided on a personalized motorcycle helmet.
A helmet to remember
We printed vinyl decals of the company's logo to put on the sides of the custom painted helmet. For the back, we made one that read, "In Recognition of Service to..." These two elements alone make the helmet personalized and one-of-a-kind.
We love it when customers ...
