ABOUT ME


I got my start in painting back in the old school laquer
days doing vehicle touch ups for friends and neighbors.
It quickly turned into painting truck roll pans--doing body
and fender work and painting the neighborhoods
motorcycles. I am a self taught painter learning through
trial and error the art of custom painting.
Nobody can
teach you how to mix paint for that one of a kind look,
nor can they teach you the disasters that will happen if
you cut corners. You have to crawl before you can walk
so to speak. Moving to the south suburbs of Chicago in
the mid 80's, i soon had a following of hot rodders and
bikers wanting to update the look of their rides

Here at KERRY'S CUSTOM PAINT & GRAPHICS I feel that
I put out a great product, both in design and quality. I
never ever cut corners. I use only the best materials and  
I am constantly testing new products to ensure that I stay
up to date with the current products and techniques. I
seal every job with epoxy primers or 2k primers. This
ensures what I paint will never peel, crack or shrink. I go
that extra mile on every step of the job to ensure a
superior finish and shine. Every job is finished with four
coats of clear, then sanded and cleared again with two
more coats of clear. Then the job is color sanded and
buffed to a glass finish. I use multiple spray guns while
painting your parts.
I have a separate gun for dark colors---one for light
colors--one for primers--one for intercoat clears--and one
for the final clearing.
My guns are cleaned and lubricated after each and every
job.
Doing this ensures there is no cross contamination in the
products used and also ensures you wont have
pink flakes in you purple paint job.

I do not paint mural themes--background
themes--portraits, or real
fire on motorcycle tins. That is a separate art class within
itself.
Sculls--logos--badging and lettering are all painted on
your parts.
I do not use decals. Flames and graphics are all taped out
by hand one by one and are sprayed with the color of
your choice.

I will not compare myself to other painters with the large
overhead, huge payroll, and the BIG HEAD to match. I
have virtually no overhead because everything is done by
me. My shop is fitted with all the tools I need to produce
top notch custom paint jobs. From lighting to
compressors, ventilation to materials  climate control
and the most up to date spray equipment. I have my
hands on your parts from start to finish. They will not
leave here unless they are PERFECT enough for me to
install them on my own bike. PERIOD. --- I PAY ME AND
NOBODY ELSE. THIS
ENSURES THAT EVERY JOB I DO
WILL GET THE UTMOST ATTENTION TO QUALITY &
DETAIL.  I HAVE TO.
MY REPUTATION DEPENDS ON IT.


Let KERRY'S CUSTOM PAINT & GRAPHICS TRANSFORM
YOUR BORING STOCK PAINT JOB TO A FLASHY ONE
