Custom Car Furniture Project – Learn Auto Body And Paint

Amazing VIP Member Custom Car Furniture Project

I had to post these pics to show you what you can do once you grasp the concept behind auto body and paint.

The world really is your oyster.

You can create whatever you imagine.

I was just blown away by the detail and workmanship that was put into this thing.

Our VIP member who submitted these pics had no idea of how to body work or paint when he joined us just a few short months ago.

I personally got inspired again.

I always wanted to make a few of these and now I am in full force mode and getting ready for a few custom project like these.

    Hi Tony, my son came on holiday ( to Aussie ) from the UK and stayed for a year. He bought a camper. When his holiday ended he left me his camper. He will be returning at the end of the year he claims. ( DAD when I come back will you have painted my camper!!!! ) Well after the first little bit I stopped and whet a hunting on the NET and came across your Book. I have now read 30 pages and I tell you I have made at least 100 big Bad misjudgements to your trade. All I can say thank GOD for a person like you and your Book. I am a Drafter.
    I hope to post a pic one day.

    Tony: I grew up in the body shop. My dad was in the trade and in the 50’s and 60’s I learned from him. Continued into the 70’s and then left the trade for construction work.

    A lot of the basics that I learned years ago are still a big part of the trade today. However what I am learning, that has changed greatly is the coatings and other materials. The old days of acrylic laquers and synthethic enamels have given way to newer and better chemicals. And I need your advise about a project I have in mind.

    I and my dear wife are retired and we RV a lot. I pull our Holiday Rambler 5th wheel trailer with my 2001 Ford F450. The truck is factory white. I would like to match the accent colors that are on the trailer (as well as some of the design) on to the truck.

    The paint on the truck is in good shape, including the clearcoat. If I layout the scheme I want on the truck, what is be best way to prep the existing clearcoat to accept the new colors and then clearcoat the entire truck.

    I really enjoyed your video’s and your answers to some of the questions you students have presented. Keep up the good work and I look forward to your reply.

      hey Mike! that is very cool. Yes the basics of auto body work are the same and will never change, and I agree, all that really changes over the years are the materials and some tools to make thing easier or products that are only in the interest of the big corporations. Anyway, all you have to do is wet sand your clear coat with a 1500 grit and pay your base and clear over it… Really no big deal. Good luck and send us some pics if you can.

      Talk soon, Tony

    Hey tony I have been waiting to come across something like to learn for my own projects I just have this undying passion for cars that I can pretty much thank my dad for. He is a car guy no specific just loves them all and has had at least one from every category. It started when I was 7 and he came home with a candy apple red civic so we worked on that thing day and night and ever since I’ve wanted to do the same with every car Ive had
