Whatever the vehicle--from classic hot rod to pick-up to chopper--a custom paint job sets it apart. But not all paint jobs are created equal, so how can you tell which style, technique, or scheme will suit the unique demands of your vehicle and budget? Before making a big investment--whether you're hiring a painter or doing the job yourself--turn to this book for a clear idea of what works and what doesn't.

Drawing on years of experience running her own custom painting shop, JoAnn Bortles reviews the full array of options for paints, graphics, and effects. In an easygoing and engaging manner, and with photographs to illustrate her points, she explains the tools and techniques that apply in various paint schemes and shows what might work especially well in certain situations and for particular vehicles.

Whether you're looking for inspiration, considering color combinations or graphics, or simply wondering what to look for in a local paint shop, this book will answer your questions--and help you get the custom paint job that's perfect for you.
