Custom City was a body, paint, upholstery and pinstripe shop on Atlantic avenue in Compton, California. In 2011 Rex Hurley told Kustomrama that his grandparents Russ and Bess Wright ran the upholstery part of the shop. Tom Kelly ran the pinstriping department, while Dick Jackson took care of the paint and body shop; "My father, Jim Hurley, was the metal man for Dick, he would teach Automotives at La Habra high school during the day, and do bodywork for Dick Jackson at night."
