Putting the finishing touches to your ride is one of them most thrilling aspects of the whole process. It is the moment when you see your baby truly coming together.

When it comes down to the paintwork, you really want to think about longevity. Sure a bright shiny motor always looks dazzling to the eye but remember that you’re investing a lot of blood, sweat and hardcold cash into this project. Can you really see yourself driving this color car for the rest of your life? You don’t want to be coming back into the workshop two years later wondering what you were thinking when you ordered that racing car green…

So truly think about it. Look for rides which you are drawn to and ask yourself why. Envision yourself going around your day to day business in that ride. If it feels good to think about then you know you’re on the right path.


Next up, you want to consider if you’re up to the task of painting the ride yourself. Sure you might think it looks easy but there’s a lot to think about. The prepping, the painting environment and the jaw dropping quality that you should be aiming for.

Unless, you’ve experience in this area you might want to think about outsourcing the job to the professionals. Here at Palm Beach Customs we have been painting cars since 1980. You can take a look at some of our completed projects here.

We have our own 30ft spray booth install complete with a paint mixing room. Designed so that it ensures a dust free and immaculate finish.


At Palm Beach Customs, not only can you can you order your steel bodies and other components, you can also get your perfect finish. Needless to say, we can take care of the entire build for you if you’d prefer.
