TD Customs’ Custom Painted Shop Truck

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 road. We were inspired by the shop sign we recently made out of an old S-10 hood. ...

Motorcycle Dent Repair & Custom Paint

Motorcycle accidents happen. Maybe you were involved in an accident on the road, or maybe the bike just accidentally got laid down in the garage. Whether you need minor or major motorcycle dent repair, we're here to help. 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. Read more about Marble Effect Painting. The customer was really happy, but has since damaged a couple pieces and brought them back for repair. ...

Custom Painted Shop Sign from S10 Truck Hood

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 can do. We painted the sides and bottom edge a blue color with some micah in ...

Two Toned Motorcycle Paint Job

Two toned motorcycle paint jobs are a great way to spice up the look of your bike while still keeping it simple. This orange and black paint job combines an awesome sparkly orange color on top with solid black on the bottom. From certain angles, the orange has all kinds of shimmer and you can spot shades of yellow and even green when the sun hits it. We painted the entire bike for this paint job, which included the tank, front fairing, side covers, hard bags, and fender. The two hard bags were all orange, while the other motorcycle parts were painted the two-toned orange and black. When the bike came in, all of the parts were completely ...

Polaris Slingshot Paint Job: Adding Flames

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! Polaris Slingshot paint job Tim carefully peeled off the rebel flag decals using with a heat gun, and sanded down the entire area in the front. He taped ...

Ghost Flame Paint Job on a Harley tank

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 tank, or doing something more custom. After looking at some pictures online and of ...
