We love restoring motorcycle parts. You see such a huge difference in a short amount of time. Plus, many times, we get to use bright, bold colors like on these Harley parts.

Before we do any motorcycle paint job, we make sure the surface (the body) of all the parts are flawless. We smooth out any imperfections, like dents, dings or scratches. We take care of any rust. The surface has to be perfect for the paint to lay out perfectly as well.
When the surface is perfectly straight and the paint is sprayed, it looks smooth as glass. Check ...
It seems no matter how careful you are, over time, your car is bound to get some small blemishes along the way. Most commonly we see chips in the paint, sun fading or little scratches, dents, and dings.

Shallow scratches may sand out, or if it's a more substantial scratch, we'll use bondo and make the surface smooth again. That panel will then get ...
Not all classic cars come into TD Customs for a full restoration. Some just have some rust or dents and dings that need to be taken care of. If you're bringing your classic car anywhere for repair, make sure it's at a place that knows these kinds of cars. We specialize in classic cars and getting the metal and body work done so the car looks completely flawless.
Classic Car Rust Repair
A '64 Chevy Impala came into the shop needing rust repair done to a couple small areas. In the picture below, you can see some minor rust damage to the corner of the rear driver's side ...
In April 2016, we wrapped up the F-100 truck restoration and paint job. It was a big restoration that included a lot of rust repair and body work. We did repairs to the cab and chassis, but replaced the bed and most of the floor pans.
It has come a long way from what it was when it came into the shop. In the picture below, you can see how bad the floor pans were rusted out. We replaced the floor pans, welding in new ones.
Like most truck restorations, this was a frame-off restoration. This means we did the repairs with the cab and the bed detached. All parts ...
While we are best known for our full paint jobs and classic restorations, we also stay busy with collision repair work. These jobs are typically in and out in just a few days. Some include repairing dents and other small areas that were damaged in the accident. Others require replacing the damaged areas with new parts and doing the body work to get it straight again.
In the case of this 2011 GMC Sierra pickup truck, the front end was badly crushed and caved in. We needed to replace quite a few parts, including the hood, fender, front bumper, headlights, grille, ...
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 ...
At TD Customs, we know classic cars. We do full restorations on most of the classics that come into our shop, refinishing the entire body to its original condition. As a full service body shop, we also offer collision services on all kinds of vehicles. Most of our collision work is done on modern vehicles, but accidents happen to classic cars too.
When it comes to your classic car, we recommend getting it repaired at a body shop that specializes in classic cars. The auto body techs at TD Customs work on classic cars day in and day out.

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 ...

Just like with any paint job, we will assess the body damage we need to repair. Getting the body back in shape is the first priority. Obviously paint on top of damage will jump out and look very bad. We will repair any rust, dents and dings, and make sure the panels are straight.
Once all the repairs have been made, we prime it, sand it down, and then it's time for fresh paint. ...
This VW camper van was a cool project, just because it's a little different than your average car or truck paint job. We were itching to get a peace sign on there, but this one was done classic, all the way.
This camper van was being refinished back to original condition and original colors. The top color is an off-white, and the bottom is their VW classic brown color.
Here is what it looked like before...
When the camper van came in, it needed some body work and rust repairs. We got started on the body of the camper right away. We sand the body down until ...
