Ron Corder started his customizing business forty years ago with a milk crate, a selection of One-Shot paints, vinyl striping tape and a pinstriping brush. His business focus and name may have changed through the years, but he has always stayed true to his hot rod, pinstriping, and sign artist passions.

He graduated in 1982 and began applying tape stripes and freehand pinstriping to just about anything, with or without wheels. He signed his work, “Lil’ Wiz…” and worked all across the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

While at college, someone asked him, “Can you make a sign?” He answered simply, “Yes.” He has been pinstriping, applying lettering and graphics, and making custom signs ever since.
