It seems that everything goes in circles, from retro-look clothing to custom paint styles from back in the day. We’ve been receiving emails from different readers asking us if we could do a tech on old school graphics. So we asked around and hooked up with a Danny of D&D Designs in Baldwin Park, California, who had the perfect project planned with a customer’s car.
Danny teamed up with his buddy Sorell, who used to do old school paint jobs when they were cool the first time around, and Ron from SEM Paints, who was going to come in and lend a helping hand. We scheduled a date with them and were on our way.
When we arrived, the car was just about ready to be shot with only a few details needing to be completed before the roof was started on. Once everything was in order, the project took off without a hitch, as they had determined the design before laying any color to make sure that the build-up could be done in a few days instead of weeks, as some projects go. Now follow along as Danny and Sorell show us how to do old school graphics with a modern twist.
