    SVTPerformance Show'n'Shine Saloon Gets Modded

    SVTPerformance Show'n'Shine Saloon Gets Modded







    SVTP has some big plans for our dedicated paint, detailing, and body modification forum Show'n'Shine Saloon in 2012. We’re pleased to announce that Kevin Tetz from TRUCKS TV will now be helping us out in there by moderating and providing information on how to properly detail, repair, and/or modify your bodywork.

    In addition to being a well known automotive television personality, Kevin has owned his own restoration shop, managed collision centers, and has learned from masters of automotive restoration. He has held ASE, ICAR, SIKKENS, PPG, and MARTIN SENOUR certifications, so it’s pretty safe to say when it comes to body work he knows his stuff. Further, Kevin is also an accomplished automotive journalist, writing for magazines such as Southern and Northern Rodder, Mustang Monthly, Modified Mustangs & Fords, and Ford Performance Trucks (I really miss that one).

    Kevin has been on TV since 2003, including features on “Popular Hot Rodding” TV, three seasons hosting “Classic Rides” and co producing “Classic Car Restoration” on DIY. As mentioned earlier, he currently hosts the popular TRUCKS series that airs weekly on Spike TV, focusing on “How To” projects and upgrades. Speaking of “How To”, his Paintucation instructional DVD series, which was launched in 2000, teaches viewers the fundamentals of paint, bodywork, and restoration techniques.

    To top it all off, Kevin owns a 2000 Harley Davidson F-150 with a 2002 SVT Lightning drivetrain. Best of all, he built it himself. It’s a real honor to have someone as well versed in automotive-arts as Kevin sharing his knowledge with the SVTP community. Not only will we be having some great tech discussions, but we’ll also be working with Kevin in the near future to produce some exclusive articles and videos covering some of the most popular detailing and restyling topics you see on SVTP.

    Until then, please check out Show'n'Shine Saloon and welcome Kevin (he goes by KTTrucks) to SVTP.

    LOL! We are working on it as we speak.... Im finishing bodywork, plumbing is nearly done still waiting on some small parts, and should start/run it within this month... Personally, if we get that truck finished the way we want it... nothing else matters! It should be strong when it's done. Thanks for watching, and thanks for the kind words and welcome... we've got some cool plans for this site and forum... we'll need your help to make it all happen though.

    Thanks!!

    Hey Kevin, it's really great to see you on the forums and I've REALLY enjoyed watching your terminator Ranger build.

    I've built a couple V8 Rangers myself. One was a full on hot rod and the other was my daily driven AWD 302 Ranger. You can see them at http://www.v8-ranger.com

    Of course I'm a terminator owner too and have since I purchased my Cobra brand new in 03. Many smiles and miles over the years. Great to see you on here.

    Love the show, been watching it for years.

    All the best

    For starters...for those that aren't mechanically inclined or detailing saavy... a clay bar and wax how to.

    Know it sounds like a stupid topic but ya never know... besides a simple wash, clean and detail goes a long from preventing problems down the line.

    it would great to get some tips on how to properly repaint the certain body parts on our cars to match the rest of the car (IE: bumpers) the front and rear bumpers on my comp. orange cobra drive me crazy cause the paint from the factory is so thin. I remember watching the silverado that you repaired and painted you blended in the paint with the rest of the truck. i would assume this the process would be similar.

    hard to see from these pics.

    I think it would be great to have a write up on how to do a good paint job in a basic 2-3 car home garage. What are the nessasary tools and techniques to get great results with out having a fancy shop and spray booth? I just started taking an autobody program at my local college and we have a modern shop with a nice booth that i can use but after i graduate from the program in a year i am going to want to do work out of my home garage.

    Great to have you on board. I watch Trucks and the entire Powerblock every week. It gives me way too many ideas to modify my F250! I need to leave it alone.
