See first-hand how aluminum and plastics are used in creative ways as decorative inserts or visual cues that tie into the vehicle's interior theme.
This course demonstrates high-level OEM finishing techniques that can be applied to any project. Learn the tricks top fabrication pros use that yield results as if the car manufacturer designed it that way. This incredible course includes shadow trim, paint tricks (marbling, faux wood grain, etc.), surface texturing, using wood-like veneers, and much more. Also, learn the secrets to having a finished look on the underside when removed for service. Get plenty of Pro Tips on prepping fabricated panels for perfect upholstery or final paint finishes.
Upholstery is the final step in any interior design and fabrication process. Watch a custom-fabricated Hot-Rod center console project be built and upholstered in real-time.
