Custom body work and mods will make your ride unique and look
Custom Body Work: Other than the initial “look over” that
you did upon selecting the car or truck that you want to customize, you
should now look more closely at the body.
- Do you see any rust areas (i.e. around window trim, door
jams, trunk area, and interior floor pan, etc.)? These are all places
where that sneaky rust can eat away at your vehicle’s metalwork.
- All rust areas need to be addressed BEFORE doing any kind
of custom body work or custom paint. If the rust is not removed, it
will come back to haunt you down the road, I guarantee.
- Now is also a good time to decide if you would like to make
any changes to the body, like Shaving the door handles or emblems,
chopping the top, installing a Lambo Door Kit so that your doors will
open vertically like a Lamborghini, installing a billet grill,
installing a body kit, or any other custom body work ideas that you
might have. This kind of work, which you can do yourself, should be
completed before going into the paint booth.
- As far as the paint goes, you can get very creative in the
style of paint-job design you would like to have on your custom car.
There are hundreds of different styles of flame paint jobs, for
instance. Just to name a few you can use traditional, tribal, ghost,
chameleon, among others. Even camouflage flames have been used!
- Flames aside, other examples of custom paint jobs include
theme-based (like a Spiderman theme, or The Incredible Hulk,
M&M’s, etc.), or two-tone, flip-flop, and even more. You
paint-job can be as unique as you want it to be! Only lack of
imagination can hold you back!
- One note that you should fully understand is to make
sure that whoever does your custom paint job knows their
stuff and has experience, and the proper equipment for doing the kind
of custom paint-job you are looking for on your custom street car or
custom truck. Please note that a custom paint job, especially those
that will require bodywork, will take a while for the painter to
complete. From experience, I have learned that it is not a good idea to
hassle your painter.
