Phill Whetstone

I have a shop in Santa Ana, CA specializing in custom paint, hand lettering and pinstriping. I grew up in the San Gabriel Valley during the 50’s / 60’s during the heyday of hot rods and customs. I went to college majoring in art and design. After school I went on to work at various sign shops for a while. Then I went to work for JC Penny in their ad department as an artist where it only took a few years to figure out that I didn’t care much for corporate politics!!

That’s when I opened my first shop. After many years of honing my craft and receiving recognition in several different magazine features, and on various automotive related TV shows, I can honestly say I still love what I do. This is because not only are my clients some of the best car builders in the country, they’re really great friends! If you’re ever in Santa Ana, give me a call, or stop by.
