My name is Dan Bennett, founder of South West Kustom, I first picked up a spray gun when I was a teenager after seeing my Dad’s custom painted motorcycle. Having no idea what to do with the spray gun, I was in awe of the paintjob, it was amazing; the depth; the colour; the artwork. It was at that moment I knew I wanted to become a custom painter. I wanted to know how to achieve such in-depth and polished work.
COLLEGE & MY FIRST JOB
As you can imagine, being young and impatient, I wanted to be able to paint at that standard immediately. So, after waving the spray gun around making no progress, I soon realised it would take years to perfect, so I visited a local paint shop and managed to get a job! I also signed up to do a three-year body and paint advanced apprenticeship at my local college, which is when I then started to realise there is so much more I can learn. So, throughout my time at college, I took on panel beating and welding. Then later on in the course i became very interested to know how to fit bodykits and fabricate. It was never ending, I was always grabbing the chance to work on cars and motorbikes taking note and learning everything I could from whoever was willing to teach me.
After completing college I enrolled in a custom painting course. This took me to different parts of the UK where I was extremely lucky in meeting some very talented painters and picking up tips in airbrush work and pinstriping on the way. I have plenty of photos in my galleries to show you the type of work carried out here at South West Kustom, enjoy!!
My work has made several magazine features including VWT (Volkswagon T4-T5), Back Street Heroes and Trike. I am always moving forward and experimenting with ideas and designs in my artwork and always perform to the highest standard possible. No corner cutting, no cheap materials, just 110% of my concentration into each and every job I take on.
