Eastwood’s ‘Shop Talk’, Episode 27: Rick Bacon, Custom Painter, Pinstriper & TV Personality

In this episode of Eastwood’s ‘Shop Talk,’ Kevin Tetz talks with custom painter and pinstriper Rick Bacon, a.k.a., ‘The Arsonist’.


Like baseball, pinstripes done well on a car are timeless. Rick, known for his realist fire and flames, insists that the car dictates the paint job, NOT the painter.

Influenced by such greats as Von Dutch and even Salvador Dali, Rick’s approach is that of a true artist. He explains to Kevin his process in approaching projects and further explains this notion that the car, the palette, communicates to him what it needs.

Sit tight & listen to Kevin and Rick as they let you in on the secrets to achieving a custom paint job on his week’s episode of Shop Talk.
