This Polaris Slingshot paint job came in for an updated look to the front end. Instead of the rebel flags, the owner wanted black flames to cover the front.
This is the first Slingshot we've had the pleasure of working on. It's in between a motorcycle and a sport car, and is classified as a three-wheeled motorcycle. The owner came from over 3 hours away in Virginia to get the custom painted flames painted on it. He said he loves riding it through the mountains and it can go up to 150 mph!

Ghost flame paint jobs let you play around with the look of your motorcycle depending on the way the light hits it. If you like a subtle look that also pops and looks unique and eye-catching, ghost flames are a cool way to do it. In the shade or from certain angles, you typically won't see anything. And then when the light hits it, you see the flames or whatever design you have ghosted in.
For this Harley-Davidson motorcycle tank, the owner went with a black base to match the rest of the bike. He was debating between painting silver stripes down the sides of the ...
We recently had a 1931 Chevrolet Cabriolet in the shop! We absolutely love keeping older classics like this on the road. We don't have our usual Before photo because this one didn't come in all put together.
We're happy to work with what our customers want, so not every job we do is the same. In this case, the owner enjoys working on these old classics and puts them together himself. What he needed from us was the expert body work and paint.
For those wanting to know what a '31 Chevy Cabriolet looks like, here is a picture plucked off of Google. (Unlike other shops ...
While we are best known for our full paint jobs and classic restorations, we also stay busy with collision repair work. These jobs are typically in and out in just a few days. Some include repairing dents and other small areas that were damaged in the accident. Others require replacing the damaged areas with new parts and doing the body work to get it straight again.
In the case of this 2011 GMC Sierra pickup truck, the front end was badly crushed and caved in. We needed to replace quite a few parts, including the hood, fender, front bumper, headlights, grille, ...
Every year we put together a calendar of our best and most favorite restorations and paint jobs we've done that year. It typically includes our bigger restorations and custom paint jobs. This year we had a lot of pictures of our work to choose from.
Take a look at this year's calendar...

This white 1987 Chevy Silverado came in with worn paint and rust damage, needing a full paint job. We replaced cab corners, repaired all the rust and body damage, and replaced all the glass. We also cleaned and undercoated the frame to keep rust from returning, and of ...
This cool classic car just makes you want to sing Prince's song, "Little red Corvette" - especially after seeing the After photo. This 1980 Chevy Corvette came in needing some body work and a fresh paint job.
We did away with the bottom side skirts you see in these Before pictures. Instead, we fitted the car with an earlier C3 Corvette rocker panel in a satin black finish. We also replaced the fiberglass front and back bumpers.
The first order of business was to start working on the areas that needed body work. This includes any waves, dents or imperfections ...
When you love your truck, but it needs refinishing and fresh paint, bring it to TD Customs! We do full paint jobs all the time, like this complete bed off truck paint job.
The '91 Ford Ranger came in with rust, sun fading and some other random body damage. Our job was to repair all body dents, rust, and refinish it back to factory - just how it looked back in 1991.
Complete Bed-Off Truck Paint Job
When we do full paint jobs on pickup trucks, we typically always remove the bed from the chassis. Doing this allows us to get to every part of the truck, including the ...
For the Jeep we recently refinished, we had a Line-X Protective Coating applied to the floor and bed. Initially, it was just painted white like the rest of the Jeep. But with the Line-X coating, it gives it a much nicer look and protection from the elements.
Line-X Protective Coating
Line-X is the first spray-on bedliner that comes with a lifetime warranty. The coating permanently bonds to the truck bed. This allows the surface to be completely sealed from water and dirt. No more worrying about rust or corrosion from drop-in bedliners.
We took the Jeep to a ...
