Yes, it’s the PAINT that lights up!

Paint that lights up with an electric charge is a completely new technology that most people are still seeing for the first time. Many people are initially in disbelief that such a product even exists. We find ourselves answering people's questions with, "Yes, it's the paint that lights up!" It's ok; when we first heard about Lumilor, we couldn't believe that there was an actual paint that lights up either, and we wanted to hear more too! So yes, it is the actual paint that lights up. Not LEDS behind it, not some computerized screen. It is the paint itself that lights up with a real electric charge running through it. Lumilor is a ...

Custom painted wheels: A subtle, yet significant upgrade

Custom painted wheels can really add a unique, yet simple look to your car. These wheels were painted silver, with small touches of black on the inside edges and a thin black line around the side. These wheels look classy with the silver base and small touches of black, and there are tons of possibilities for other color schemes. They can be painted to match the car, to contrast the majority color, or as a compliment to a two-toned car. Custom painted wheels are a subtle upgrade to the look of the car that make it stand out from all the other wheels and rims out there. Tim recently added a red pinstripe to his black El Camino wheels. It ...

Motorcycle Paint Job: Mint green bobber

Last week we had a motorcycle paint job for a custom bobber bike. The parts were bright red to begin with, but called for a softer, more vintage look for vision the customer had in mind for the way he wants to customize the bike. Therefore, there was no exact color code for this paint job. The customer had an idea of what kinds of look he was going for and showed us some pictures he had saved on his phone. He wanted a light, almost mint colored green. He and Tim looked through our paint color catalogs. We have a couple of these paint color catalogs at the shop for customers to look at. It's by no means a complete inventory of all the colors ...

Motorcycle Paint Job: Match to original color

A recent motorcycle paint job gave us a run for our money when it came to matching the color of the fender to the tank. Being mindful of keeping the gas tank as original as possible, the customer didn't want to repaint the tank, but wanted the fender to be painted to match the tank. Painting the tank would have slightly altered the original color that many people are after. In this case, it also would have given us issues with finding the exact right decals he wanted, so we understood the predicament. The bike, a 1994 Honda CB1000 Super Four, originally from the UK, was brought in by a customer wanting us to paint the fender pearl red and ...
