If interested in standing out from the crowd, you want to find a paint job that suits your personality and vehicle and there are plenty of options available. There are several different paint services available that can make your vehicle a one-of-a-kind.
If you just want to change the overall color of your vehicle, you can get a custom auto paint color change. While this process seems simple, it is far from it. It requires a good amount of prep work. In most cases, everything must be removed from the vehicle’s interior. In addition, the current paint and clear coat have to be totally removed from the exterior.
Any dents or imperfections must also be fixed and sealed before the repaint takes place. Using a reputable shop will ensure this gets done before the repaint. Otherwise, the work will look shoddy.

Some of the most popular custom paint jobs include:

Airbrush Services For Cars and Trucks
Custom airbrush services can serve several purposes. You can use them to accentuate details you want to be most visible. You can also use airbrush services to create entire murals, say on the hood or trunk of your vehicle. An airbrush service is ideal if you have a full picture you want displayed.
Chameleon paints are incredibly unique and are quickly becoming quite popular. This paint is one that changes color depending on where and how you look at it. The effect is really impactful and quite different.
This paint is made possible by a pearl pigment the works to separate light into several different individual components. Through manipulating that pearl pigment, you can attain different color effects. There are three stage colors to chameleon paints. A black base is applied first, followed by a semi-transparent layer of chameleon paint, and finally a clear coat for protection. Black bases are typically used since they allow for the highest level of light absorption. This can help preserve the effect of the color in the layer of chameleon paint.
There are plenty of custom auto paint jobs you can receive that are performed on your wheels, tires or trim. For example, if you want your rims to stand out, you can have a paint job performed on just your rims. You may even be able to get a personalized design created just for you and your vehicle.
If you do have your rims custom painted, you want to make sure the shop that performs the paint job repairs any curb damage before they begin painting.
This same kind of custom paint job can be performed on a variety of accessories or areas of your vehicle. Working with your shop can give you the full range of custom auto paint services available when it comes to your vehicle’s accessories.
Blackout packages are almost fully customizable, depending on what you want. You can often choose the color you want used, whether it is a standard gloss black or a more matte black finish. You can typically also receive a specialty finish that uses color accents or a black chrome.
The key to a perfect blackout package is ensuring the removal of everything that can come off of the car. This can include the spoiler, badges, trim, door panels, bumpers, mirror housing, fender vents, rocker panels, exhaust tips, and grille. Without removing all of the individual pieces, you cannot be assured that complete coverage is achieved, which can make for areas of the car that were missed when painting.
