Quite a few cool projects going on, but this one's mine. Figured I'd coat my hard hat.

Company colors and skulls.

A few recent projects. We have a Les Paul coming in on Saturday. Looking forward to seeing that completed.

Chevy doors


Snare drum (showcasing the amount of money you can make as a drummer)

It has automotive clear on it, so it's pretty durable. If you hit it with a hammer, it would most likely crack.

I will say, the door panel project was one of the most complicated dips we've ever done. Every hole, angle, and crevice affects the film, as does your speed and any hesitation. Obviously, with carbon fiber, you want the weave to be as uniform as possible. This project tested all of those variables and we got it done.

There is a company that can print custom film. There's a cost involved, but it's doable.

YETI Cup in Mossy Oak




This client wanted skulls, but he wanted them to be subtle. There are 4 skulls visible throughout the gun. In sunlight they are very easy to spot. In these pictures, there's one near the sight, and one at the bottom of the grip.

The gun was sprayed with matte clear.

Not easily. We use adhesive promoter and automotive paint. It'll have automotive clear with hardener at the end.

It all depends on the amount we're doing. This job is $450, but price comparable graphics from a air brush artist, and it's a bargain.
