Custom metal work
For any individual passionate about restoring old automobiles, or vintage motorcycles, Custom Garage is the place to go. With an understanding and shared love for nostalgic automotive and motorcycles, Custom Garage wants to bring your tired and weary vehicles back to life.
Primarily used as preparation for the painting process, Custom Garage’s custom metal work shapes, cleans and restores the metal before coating begins. Utilizing high-grade polishing, light welding and other cosmetic techniques, worn-down metal will shine once again. With a plethora of restoration techniques at their disposal, and empathy for fellow motorcycles enthusiasts, the team at Custom Garage will not only make your ride look like new, but make it the center of attention on and off the road.
After extensive metal work is completed to your automotive parts, imperfections or slight abrasions may appear. These minor flaws can take the form of small pits, scuffs or welding splatter. To rectify these lesser faults, polishing is often used. As one of the processes of metal work, polishing removes small blemishes on the metal in preparation for coating. It helps flatten the metal, giving the surface a smooth finish free of any defects.
Although polishing may sound like a minor step, it actually takes an experienced and steady hand to execute properly. If left in the hands of an amateur, polishing can permanently destroy delicate parts – you don’t want to leave your Ferrari bumper in the hands of a rookie. Luckily, Custom Garage’s more-than-capable team is well versed in the art of polishing and experienced at working on a variety of vintage motorcycles and cars.
To begin the restoration process, old coatings and imperfections need to be stripped from the metal to stop any contaminates from tainting the new coat. To guarantee that nothing will be left on a part, sandblasting is a viable approach. It is a method where tiny grains of sand are literally “blasted” at the metal, removing any covering, coating or blemishes from the piece.
Sandblasting is an extremely thorough cleaning technique that purges any previous layers and coatings from the metal. Due to its absolute and aggressive nature, sandblasting strips the part right down to the steel. It eliminates the chance that contamination from previous coatings will remain so the new coating will be unaffected. Its quick and thorough nature makes it a go-to choice.
Although sandblasting is an extremely useful technique, it’s incredibly aggressive nature can actually threaten the structural integrity of older, frailer or thinner parts. For a less mechanically aggressive approach to restoration, the team at Custom Garage turns to chemical compounds to strip delicate metals.
When dealing with the fragile components of older automotives, chemical metal stripping is the ideal approach. By dipping a part in the chemical compound for two hours, old paint, grime and other imperfections gently melts off the metal, ensuring that no irreversible physical damage occurs. If there is any chance that sandblasting may destroy the part, Custom Garage’s always cautious and experienced restoration team will turn to chemical stripping to ensure the safety of your automotive parts.
To ensure the ultimate finish on your motorcycle’s custom paint job, wet sanding is the ideal technique. Smoothing and leveling the freshly dried, custom paint, wet sanding removes the debris and imperfections that may have resulted from the painting process. Eradicating runs and snags, flattening “orange peels” and producing an absolutely breathtaking polish, wet sanding readies your captivating custom paint for the final touches.
Wet sanding is common practice on automotive work. It’s a tried and true method that gives an ultra-high shine and sensationally smooth finish to any custom paint job. Recognizing the value of wet sanding, Custom Garage implements its use to the fullest. As part of its quality control initiative, Custom Garage’s restoration team handles all custom paint and bodywork with the utmost care, giving your custom personalized motorcycle the breathtaking look it deserves.
As a process used primarily in the automotive industry, wet sanding is a tried and true method that creates a completely smooth finish with an ultra-high shine. Custom Garage recognizes the importance of this proven method, and utilizes its faculties to the fullest. Implementing our quality control initiative, Custom Garage ensures all products are handled with the utmost care, and each is given the priming, sanding and finishing to make your product shine.
During the powder coating process, a variety of colors, hues and tones are often used for different parts. These finer, intricate details require various layers of powder coating, or elaborate airbrushed graphics that also use a range colors. To ensure that that no unwanted powder coating is sprayed where it shouldn’t be, Custom Garage’s restoration team utilizes the simple technique of masking.
The process of masking protects surface areas and secures certain sections from unwelcome powder coating. Silicon sleeves are applied over screws to keep the coating from plugging up the threads. Lighting or electrical boxes are masked to keep the powder coating from interfering with wiring. Although a simple and perhaps minor step, masking helps give finalized paint jobs that professional look.
Any true auto aficionado knows a vehicle is a representation of the self and that a stock paint job simply doesn’t capture the essence or importance of an individual’s ride. To give your motorcycle a unique and personalized feel, a custom paint job is what you need. Our team of airbrushing artists is as talented as they are creative.

These finishes further add to the personalized and custom look of your motorcycle and are guaranteed to satisfy the most discerning automotive enthusiast.
The key component of Custom Garage’s business rests in powder coating. Time and again, powder coating has proven itself as a far superior and more durable paint product than standard liquid coating. It gives a strong and thick coat, which is applied far more efficiently than liquid coating. As the powder coating experts, Custom Garage utilizes powder coatings specifically designed for automotive use. Powder coating also releases zero, or almost zero, volatile organic compounds (VOC), which are common in liquid coating. Vocs are extremely harmful to the environment, and to maintain its green initiative, Custom Garage is proud to make powder coating its paint of choice.
Although powder coating is a superior paint product, it involves a heat-intensive curing process to finish its application. Some projects encompass components that cannot withstand the intense heat required for powder coating (anything with electrical wires, for example). In these situations, liquid coating is the ideal alternative.
All of Custom Garage’s coating processes are monitored by its Quality Management System, ensuring every process is controlled and documented. Whether using powder or liquid coatings, every job Custom Garage handles is guaranteed to meet the company’s extremely high standards.
