Hotrod Heuy (Jonathan Heuy) custom painter and striper. Owner of Insane Originals and Steel Striping and is an incredible pinstriper from the Kansas City region.


His work can be found on tailgate and fenders all over the upper Midwest as well as creepers, intruments and anything else that will sit still long enough for him to lay some One Shot on with a brush!


He has created something really cool and adds a new twist to the art form by making custom one of a kind hand crafted multi-deminsional pinstriping. Each one is made from Steel rod, hand bent, welded, grinded, cut, and formed into pieces of art. For more info on his work visit his Facebook page HERE



Cody Langford, is the proud owner of Defiance Speed Shop out of Carthage Missouri.



Cody offers some really cool hot rod and custom items for you and your ride! His focus is to have fun doing things that are hot rod related, and it shows in his work! He designs and creates things from original paintings and works of art to shift knobs and t-shirts. We think they are so cool we own just about one of every shift knob offering he has and one is in on our own personal hot rod!

Spencer Turner calls Springfield his home and is a relatively new comer to the scene who started slinging a brush in 2011. In that short amount of time he has blazed onto the scene with some of the most solid lines, flowing designs and outright jaw dropping color combos! He paint cars, motorcycles, window signs, anything that will sit still long enough to let the One-shot loaded brush do its work.  One of the other things Spencer offers to his customers is custom Leatherworker. This is an art by itself but for those looking to take their motorcycle over the top, he can offer lines on the tins and custom work to match on the seat. Making your ride’s custom lines flow and bringing it all together so neither look like an after thought.

Spencer lives in Springfield and have been painting since 2011. He paints cars, motorcycles, window signs, anything that will sit still long enough. I can pinstripe, gold leaf, sign paint, and am a Leatherworker.
