Custom Car & Truck Painting

Walking around the convention halls of major car shows like SEMA or GoodGuys, scrolling through classic custom cars on TikTok or Instagram, or watching features on MotorTrend TV you’ve probably seen the work coming out of central Oklahoma’s DTAB Customs. 

There’s no substitute for passion, experience, & a somewhat unhealthy little voice in your head that says no matter how much you accomplish everything rides on the job that is right in front of you at the moment.  This kind of dedication to the craft of building custom cars, trucks, restomods, muscle cars, & more is what has made DTAB Customs work so sought after by clients as well as brands all over the country.

I contacted DTAB Customs after my 1969 Camaro had been sitting half done for years. They understood my vision, they understood my budget, & it was done two months ahead of schedule. Best custom car shop hands down!

Social Media Features

Its not about bragging rights, instagram likes, or TikTok comments. What its about is building a community of people who have a real passion for custom cars & custom trucks. With a combined following of about 150,000 people DTAB Customs social media is a place to follow along on the progress of build projects, interact with the crew at the shop, or as with random internet car guys who drive kia’s or Toyota pickups its a place to let us know that we are stupid for (insert whatever we are doing at that moment: bagged trucks, lifted trucks, bagged cars, ANY modification to vintage corvette. The list goes on.) 

No matter what your reason for visiting our social media accounts we love answering questions, showing what we do, & meeting up at events. Don’t ever be shy about reaching out. We are all misfits and come together for the love of hot rods.
