The future of light is here, and it's in the paint!
Thanks to electroluminescent paint, we can now make your paint job light up on command. We connect wires from a battery source right to the paint itself. The paint is actually a complex system of about 6 different coatings that all work together to produce light when energized by power.
When you flip the switch (or press the button, or power it from your smartphone), the light from your paint job turns on. It's really that easy!
Take a look at how 'electric paint' looks in different shades of ...
Myrtle Beach Bike Week was a blast! TD Customs was there with our light up motorcycle to show the town what Lumilor is all about.
Myrtle Beach Bike Week: Fall 2016
Myrtle Beach Bike Week is a fun time to bring your bike and hit the town with others who share the same passion. There is a great community of motorcyclists in town during the two bike weeks they have. Plenty of bars welcome bikers and have bands throughout the night. During the day, there are also bands and vendors set up at certain bars and the Harley-Davidson of Myrtle Beach. Murrell's Inlet has a bunch of ...

GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) - There's a new kind of paint on the market, and it's helping to raise awareness about motorcycles on the road by making the bikes more visible.
It's called Lumilor paint, and there are only four shops in the country that ...
Last week, the Asheville Citizen-Times came out the TD Customs in Mills River to talk about our Lumilor lit motorcycle. We discussed how the paint works, how we've gotten started with it, and how great of a safety feature it is for motorcyclists. It's been great getting the word out about Lumilor and what we can do with it. Below is the full article.

TD Customs was featured on FOX Carolina News 21 this week, showing the Asheville and Greenville communities what an excellent safety feature electroluminescent paint can be on a motorcycle.
There are so many motorcycle accidents simply due to drivers not seeing the bikers out there on the roads. Increasing visibility is a big concern for many motorcyclists. Lumilor is a new paint product that lets you add light to your bike as a safety feature, as well as having a totally new way to customize the look of your motorcycle.

The Mountaineer Antique Auto Club Car Show was this past Friday and Saturday at the WNC Ag Center. They had lots of classics and modified cars out in the front grass area, a swap meet of different car parts, and the car corral in the back building, which is where we were. The car corral included some of the most impressive cars; some of which were for sale, others just on display. I must say, it was the best spot to be since it was so hot out this weekend and the building had A/C!
TD Customs was set up in the car corral area, displaying the TD Customs El Camino and the ...
TD Customs got some attention on Asheville's WLOS News station Tuesday morning! It was great getting to talk about our custom paint services, including the new electroluminescent paint, Lumilor, featured on our TD Customs motorcycle.
WLOS reporter, Lauren Brigman, came to the shop to check out the TD Customs motorcycle with its light up paint job, and we got to do four different live clips talking about the bike. They did the first interview at 5am, then 5:30, 6, and 6:30am. Having several live interviews over the course of the morning turned out to be really great ...
Electroluminescent paint turns your motorcycle into a light bulb that you can turn on and off with a switch. We wire the paint job directly to the motorcycle, which allows you to easily control when you want it to be lit. It'll increase your visibility out there on the roads, and turn heads with how cool it looks at night and in the evenings.
Check out this quick video of the Lumilor lit motorcycle out at night.
We definitely get a ton of attention when we take the bike out at night. Having a paint job that lights up is something so new that it turns a lot ...
TD Customs presents our own custom painted motorcycle with blue lace effect and electroluminescent paint.
The TD Customs Motorcycle
We recently sold our older bike, and bought this newer one - a 2004 Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 from 191 Highway Motorsports. When we were looking at different bikes, we knew we wanted one with a large tank and hard bags that we could paint to really stand out. This one is bigger and more comfortable, and of course got a brand new custom paint job right away.
Our TD Customs Motorcycle is all about the paint. It is painted to match the ...
The TD Customs El Camino
There are big changes happening to the El Camino. We are talking complete restoration, from the motor to the body and paint. And let me tell you, both the motor and the finished paint work are going to blow your mind.
The current (soon to be 'old') paint job is jet black with red ghost flames on the hood. The flames are ghosted in so well that you only see them when you get right up on the car. Otherwise, the entire car looks black. It's been fun to see people walk by admiring the car, and then realize that it gets even better with the custom ...
