TD Customs’ 2018 Calendar

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 course, gave it a fresh factory-original paint job back to white. Click Here to ...

Complete Bed-Off Truck Paint Job

When you love your truck, but it needs refinishing and fresh paint, bring it to TD Customs! We do full paint jobs all the time, like this complete bed off truck paint job. The '91 Ford Ranger came in with rust, sun fading and some other random body damage. Our job was to repair all body dents, rust, and refinish it back to factory - just how it looked back in 1991. Complete Bed-Off Truck Paint Job When we do full paint jobs on pickup trucks, we typically always remove the bed from the chassis. Doing this allows us to get to every part of the truck, including the back of the cab and front of the bed. We take every part off of the vehicles we ...

Line-X: Our favorite bedliner coating

For the Jeep we recently refinished, we had a Line-X Protective Coating applied to the floor and bed. Initially, it was just painted white like the rest of the Jeep. But with the Line-X coating, it gives it a much nicer look and protection from the elements. Line-X Protective Coating Line-X is the first spray-on bedliner that comes with a lifetime warranty. The coating permanently bonds to the truck bed. This allows the surface to be completely sealed from water and dirt. No more worrying about rust or corrosion from drop-in bedliners. We took the Jeep to a Line-X Protective Coatings branch in Canton, NC, and were able to pick it up a day ...

Classic 1940 Ford: Refinish & Paint

The 1940 Ford pickup truck is ready after body work and full paint. The truck came in with the same color scheme; light green with the dark green fenders and running boards. They are not the factory-original colors, but they look great and really compliment each other. All the parts come off the truck to be worked on and then painted. The fenders on these old classics are nice and rounded. When we do body work, we make sure the lines are nice and smooth, and that there are no blemishes. There is a lot of sanding and prep work that go into making sure each one of these pieces is perfect before paint. Once Tim is happy with how all the parts ...

Dump Truck Paint Job

We've had a big job in the shop this past week - a dump truck paint job! This dump truck is a Ford F-700 that needed a fresh coat of paint. The cab and the hood of the dump truck were painted a bright white color. The bed was painted a simple grey. Large utility vehicles like this F-700 in for a dump truck paint job are not what we typically have in the shop. However, as you can see, we can easily accommodate for one. We pull out the scaffolding and are good to go. We sand down the entire body of the truck, and repair any damage we find. This particular dump truck paint job didn't have too much body damage, so we mainly just sanded out ...

Utility truck paint job

You gotta keep the work trucks clean! This 2007 Ford F-450 bucket truck just needed some body maintenance and fresh paint to get back to its original condition.

Quick Pickup Truck Paint Job

This is a pretty cool truck - a 1987 Chevy Silverado, shortbed, 4x4. The truck came to TD Customs with rust on many of the panels and fading white paint. Our job was to repair all rust and body damage and give it a fresh coat of white paint. We took the bed off the chassis to do complete body work repairs to the cab and the bed. We also cleaned up the chassis and sealed it with an anti-rust application. The following is the Before pic.. It sure looks a lot nicer after painting the cab and sealing the chassis, as you can see below. The turnaround on this truck was quick. It only took a week to get all the metal work, body work ...

Full restoration: ’82 F-150 pickup

The 1982 Ford F-150 pickup truck is one of our latest restorations that we've been working on. This one has been in the works for a few months now, needing more attention than some of the others. The last time we saw the F-150 on the blog was here, and the bed and the cab were being worked on separately. After that, we painted the cab and the front side of the bed (the part that sits up against the cab). Once these were painted, we put the bed back on the chassis to make it a complete truck again. This makes it easier to paint the entire exterior. Especially with two toned paint jobs, it's better to  have everything in place before ...

’79 Sierra: Rust repairs & Fresh paint

    This 1979 GMC Sierra Classic pickup truck was in the shop for some rust repairs and a fresh paint job. The customer wanted to keep the truck looking original with the same paint scheme. With all the rust, it was just time to do some maintenance on the truck to get it looking new again. There were some minor dings and waves that required body work. The truck was speckled with rust on the roof and other areas of the truck, such as the driver's side door. Since the rust was mostly just speckled, this was the best time to get to it. Taking care of rust early on, before it has a chance to create large holes, is a good ...
