Custom Painted SUV – Basic No Longer

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 rainbow metal flake on a white car before. In the shade, it still looks basic ...

Fade Paint Job on Harley Motorcycle

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 paint job. Therefore, we used candy apple red throughout the entire paint job, ...

Two Tone SUV Paint Job

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 our part because we aren't taking the doors, hood and trunk lid off the vehicl...

Paint & Body on a Classic ’71 Camaro

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 paint is the inner panels and door jambs. We paint these pieces off the car, and ...

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. ...

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 bring us their ideas for cool paint jobs on their motorcycles. Sometimes we'll ...

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 ...
