If our friend Courtney Hallowell was still around, he’d be proud that some old mini truckers, like Mike Finnegan and I, still admit to being mini truckers. I want another mini bad. And I’ll probably build one next year. But our boy Mike Finnegan has been buying up so much stuff that he’s actually got a functioning mini truck in need of paint. It is all white and that just doesn’t work, because old school mini trucks need graphics! In this video, this Toyota is going to get transformed, at a truck show no less, because it needs to look cooler.
And boy will it! We’re talking about a group of folks working on this thing for four days straight, prepping, priming, fixing, and painting and then they got to the graphics. It’s a cool story and a fun video to watch, so check it out below.
If you don’t like graphics like this, that’s okay, but still, watch the video so you can get an understanding of what actually goes into painting graphics. This is an art form that most car painters are not capable of handling. It is impressive as hell and my hat is off to all the folks that helped make this thing a reality. I dig it.
Here is the video description:
A group of talented artists came together to paint this classic mini truck during the Take Over Event at Langley Speedway in Hampton Virginia. The process was on full display while custom paint classes were being taught just next to the booth. The event was 4 days long and in the end, the graphics were complete but the truck had to travel back to Matt Hutcheson’s shop in Southern California for the final touches.
