It's that time of year for a wrap up of our coolest paint jobs, restorations, or jobs from the previous year. We've been busy and are fortunate to have a lot to choose from!
For January we have the 1931 Chevy Cabriolet that we did body work on and painted in parts. When this one left our shop, it was in pieces The owner had done a lot of work on the case, and wanted to assemble it himself. He also added a black vinyl top that compliments it really well. This classic car is a beauty!

In February, we're looking at the ...
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 ...
Hendersonville's kick off to summer starts with the first Music on Main St Concert Series & Classic Car Show!
The Music on Main St event happens every Friday night in the summers. Each one has an outdoor concert with dancing, with car shows alternating between the classic car show and Corvette nights. This one was the classic cars. It's nice to visit the car shows going on in our own home town. Visit one of these local classic car shows and you'll see just how many beautiful cars we have in our area!
Of course, it's also nice to see a couple cars TD Customs ...
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 ...
TD Customs is rocking a new shop sign!
We needed a new one after the old one rusted from being in the rain too much. Turns out, if your hood is going to be vertically up against a wall, the rain is going to damage it more than if it's just on your truck. But, it gave us a chance to update the sign with a whole new custom paint job!
It's fun to do random paint jobs where we can be creative. Since this is the sign for the front of the building, we had lots of freedom with how to paint it. We wanted it to stand out and be a cool representation of the custom paint we ...
Saturday was the 3rd annual Mountain Motor Show at the WNC Ag Center in South Asheville. We've been going since it started, and it's always been a good time.
TD Customs is located in Mills River, right down the road from the Ag Center, so we always like to go to the car shows in our neighborhood. The Mountain Motor Show is a big car show that shows off cars, trucks and motorcycles in different categories. They range from Best Classic to Best Hot Rod, among others. Cars are displayed both inside and outside. Saturday was a beautiful, sunny day, so it was perfect to ...
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...
~ January ~
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 ...
At TD Customs, we know classic cars. We do full restorations on most of the classics that come into our shop, refinishing the entire body to its original condition. As a full service body shop, we also offer collision services on all kinds of vehicles. Most of our collision work is done on modern vehicles, but accidents happen to classic cars too.
When it comes to your classic car, we recommend getting it repaired at a body shop that specializes in classic cars. The auto body techs at TD Customs work on classic cars day in and day out.
There is definitely more ...
No, you are not seeing double. TD Customs has just doubled our shop space!
We've been outgrowing our current shop for awhile now. It has been getting harder and harder to move around the different cars we're working on at a given time. We are extremely fortunate in that demand is up, but with just the one bay, we've been having to schedule customers further out than we'd like. Now we've got the space to accommodate more vehicles and get jobs on the schedule much sooner than before.
We also ran into the issue of having so many vehicles in one area being in ...
