What Is A Custom Paint Job?

A custom paint job is when a shop paints your car a completely different color from the current one of your car.  At West Coast Body and Paint we can help you create your own custom color or match any color you desire.

Why would you want to paint your car a custom color?

This option is for those clients who want their cars to stand out, be unique, or for nostalgic reasons.

How is the job done? The Process

Preparing your car for paint.  Like all traditional paint jobs, there is a standard paint preparation process we follow, the only difference in a custom paint job is the color.  You design your custom color for your car.

Pick your color and finish.  Choosing the right color is crucial for a custom paint job because it will be the color your car will be “married” to, so make sure you are completely in love with it.  Once you have an idea of what the color you want is, our paint technician sometimes will make a sample of it so you can feel comfortable with your choice.

*Especially if you’re building a hot rod, muscle car, classic car or a custom car, it is a good idea to take a sample of your custom color and see it under as many different lighting conditions as possible to make sure it’s the right color for your vehicle.

Painting your car your custom color.  With your color picked out, we make a reality, our technician will paint your car your custom color in our paint booth.   We only use the best paints Sherwin-Williams and Transtar offers.  After this all you have left to do is decided on the finish.

Painting your car it’s paint finish.  Along with the color selection, you have additional options for the finish, which include:

  • candy
  • flake
  • matte/flat
  • metallic
  • pearl
  • satin
  • shiny
  • tricoat
