- What are the right steps to do body work? 

How much air pressure (PSI) should I be painting with? ...What primers do I use?

- How do I mix paints, primers or clearcoats correctly?

- How do I setup my spray gun?

- Do I need to oven bake my paint to get a nice finish. Is this true?

- Do I need a $40,000.00 spray booth to get professional paint results?

And with that said, let’s get into it...

Tony B. Richie - Learn Auto Body & Paint Founder.

Tony, is a veteran body man and painter with over 20 years experience. He set out in 2009 to create the BEST online training resource for the DIY'er in his garage.

With over 300k readers of his auto body newsletter and tens of thousands of happy VIP members across the world, he is truly an inspiration. Tony's VIP course is also used in Canadian and US High Schools.

When it comes down to it, your age doesn’t matter...

In fact, I started this trade when I was 13 years old painting 50cc scooters.

My Godfather got started at 76. 

And yeah, that's him featured in the "Godfather Project" that you see on this page above...

And now I’m handing you over the same proven techniques, knowledge and experience that has made me well over $580,000 part-time fixing and painting cars for myself and for my clients.

Soon, you'll get to paint your ride, learn a money making skill, and roll-in-style, all on a shoe-string budget by doing-it-all yourself.

Just take a few minutes right now, sit back relax, and pay close attention.

Read every single word on this page because this is VERY IMPORTANT for your success in becoming a savvy do-it-yourself auto body painter, and more.

Finally, you'll be able to avoid costly mistakes, and propel yourself to high-levels very quickly by tapping into the insider tips and tricks of the automotive industry. You'll know things they don't want you to know about.

I'm here to reveal it ALL. The good, the bad, and the ugly.

Before we get started, let me introduce myself...

Hello, my name is Tony B. Richie

And I'm truly humbled by all of the amazing feedback that we get every-single day on our video channels, on social media, and from your emails pouring in...

To date I’ve helped more than ten-thousand people worldwide over achieve their dreams by creating high quality paint and body work through my step-by-step VIP auto body programs and courses.

And for those of you who support me and our movement, I thank you! 

Yes, I might be 40, but I’ve already got 25 years of experience in the auto body business. 

And I know exactly how to get you up and running, completing your own professional looking projects WITHOUT a $40,000 spray booth!

Truth is, you don't need it.

It doesn't matter how old you are.

All you need is a desire and the will to follow simple directions and take action.

In fact, we have VIP members of all ages... literally, from 13 - 80 years young.

Here's the first paint job that I did at 13 years old. A 1989 Yamaha YSR 50 and a 1967 Camaro that I restored when I was 21

I started auto body and painting when I was 13 years old. 

I painted my first scooter (a Honda Elite and a 1989 Yamaha YSR 50) in the basement of my mothers house.

I've also owned some pretty cool cars in my day such as a 1988 Olds Cutlass Supreme, 1969 Buick Riviera, 2nd Gen 1989 RX-7, BMW M3, E30, E36, E46, W202 Benz, E500, SLK 230, 1967 Chevy Camaro RS, 1966 Pontiac GTO, 1957 Chevy, Multiple 1st and 2nd Generation Mazda Miata’s... and so much more!

The list goes on, but I don’t want to bore you here because this is more about you than it is about me.

You get my point, I'm just a total car nut, probably like you.

Here's a pic of that 1967 Camaro RS that I completed when I was 21 years old. The thing was a beauty. 

I sure miss it!

I paid $1,500.00 for the Camaro and let me tell you it was a BEATER!

It had no engine, no interior and the body was BEAT. 

I then did a ton of bodywork and invested $12,000.00 into it, I then had sold it about a year later for $21,000.00. This was back in 2003.

I then used the money to roll back into my business buying and selling cars for profit and went on to double that investment.

Then on to doubling that again, and again.

This is something that you can also do if you have a love for the work and want to make some extra cash. 

Heck, why not right?

There is HUGE money making opportunity when you know how to work with your hands.

And yes, I started all of this at age 13.

A lot of people ask me...

" Tony, how do I get started WITHOUT running into the common mistakes and pitfalls that most newbies make when they get into this? "

I'll tell you how.

Just keep reading...

So What Does Bruce Lee Have in Common With Auto Body and Creating The Ride of Your Dreams?

My father owned and operated a successful auto body shop and as a 10-12 year old kid, I would watch him work on cars...

One important lesson that I learned from my father.

He said: 

"Tony, you need to WATCH the entire process can learn a lot just by observing and paying attention to the whole process."

He continued and said...

"Tony, don't pick up any tools... just watch and understand why I'm doing, what I'm doing..."

He said: "Watch and learn from me first. Learn the A-Z step-by-step process and techniques from one person first.

Not from my partner Tony, not from Frank, with the body shop across the street. 

Once you understand and get good at one style of teaching...

Then go out and learn from others to gain additional tactics and strategies so you can mix them in with your own. 

This way you won't get confused and you know what the complete process looks like and how it works..."

Then later in life, I started to have a fascination with martial arts and Bruce Lee. 

I read all of Bruce Lee's books, I even enrolled in classes that taught the Jeet-Kun Do style of martial art that Bruce later developed, created, and taught during his short life.

And what did I discover?

Bruce Lee did the same thing when he first started...


He exclusively studied one style of martial art before training in various other styles.

During his early teens, Bruce studied with grand-master Yip Man and learned the arts of Wing Chun.

After many years of studying a variety of different martial art styles, Bruce then developed his own style called "Jeet Kun Do" .

You may have known or have heard of this...? 

The point is clear.

And this is what you should do when starting out with auto body and paint. 

The key is to follow one instructor that you know like and trust. 

Then take and use their strategy and apply them to your own projects from A-Z.

I don't care if you learn auto body from me, or if you decide to learn it from somebody else... 

I just want to help, give back, and make sure that you avoid the many costly pitfalls and common errors that can happen to you along the way..

Heck, I'll even give you a few names to help you out. 

You can look up Kevin Tetz, Donnie Smith or Ed Hubbs, or paint society online. They are all great instructors and have their own styles of auto body and paint instruction.

Some instructors teach by the book, and some from real world experience like myself and my friend, the legendary painter and founder of the House of Kolor paints. Jon Kosmoski.

Fact is, I LOVE teaching others about this Awesome and Amazing skill-set because it's just so fun and rewarding once you see the results.

This is a way for me to help and impact the world in a positive way!

Why most auto enthusiasts choose us over other courses, or just free YouTube videos, and why it would be wise if you did the same.

In-house VIP customer survey results:

The reason why most people prefer taking our LABAP VIP Mastery Course, VS other courses, free online videos, or high-cost technical trade schools are:

  • Learn Auto Body VIP is an easy to use training curriculum which includes (videos, audios, and manuals) that are very convenient to learn from. It's all delivered through a Netflix style learning center. Find what you need or want, learn and apply.

  • It's affordable. The VIP members area is jam-packed with cutting-edge content that is worth thousands of dollars.

  • You get access to the lifetime VIP membership area with new content uploaded annually if you choose the lifetime VIP option.

  • Get live support and access weekly Q&A for all VIP members! Every week we stream live and put VIP members first. We know you have unique questions and need them answered. We got your back!

  • You save $$$ money, gain confidence, the skill-set, and get real results by knowing how to tackle your unique projects.

  • Student quote: "Tony's teaching style is very easy to understand, even for a complete newbie. He gives you the confidence that you need to get things done. And he talks to you, and guides you like a friend".

So when it comes down to it...

Nobody has actually taken the time to create such an in-depth and organized easy to learn training system that anybody could follow.

What we offer is a bargain compared to some of the 1-hour DVD courses that'll easily set you back $42.95 or more for each volume.

Soon, when you get in VIP you'll have access to over 250 hours of detailed step-by-step auto body courses.

And that's just the beginning of what you get when you join VIP...

I'll touch more on this further in this letter when I show you all of the benefits, goodies and bonuses that you'll get once you make the right choice and join us in VIP.

So, please do yourself a favor and keep reading...

As you already know, a technical college will easily cost you upwards of $10,000.00 , and that doesn't include books that you need to purchase and your personal time in commuting back and fourth.

You're probably looking at upwards of $600.00 just for the books.

So there you go, and I haven't even got into the nitty-gritty of what this course can really do for you yet.

What I teach is proven to work. 

A lot of the people who sign up for our VIP program understand this. If you want reviews, check out our testimonial page or just Google or YouTube learnautobodyandpaint. 

You'll see thousands of pages... and tons of people talking about how good it is.

If you want straight real world strategies that work,  not theory, not basic classroom instruction.

This is it.

If you want step-by-step, actionable content that's easy to understand and directly applicable to your project, then this is it.

You want results? You'll get them.

It's guaranteed that you'll get results with this program and nobody else in the industry will make that promise. 

In fact, why would US and Canadian high schools invest in our courses and use them to teach their students?

Why would a New Mexico State Penitentiary use our curriculum to train their inmates on a specialized vocational skill-set?

Because it's something that they trust, something that they believe in, and something that they know works.

They know that we have an outstanding track record in delivering what we promise. 

It's good stuff.

And if you think I'm biased, I might be because this is my product and I pride myself in delivering over-the-top value that you will definitely notice and enjoy.

In fact, just see what a few other members have to say...

Don't take my word for it. See what others are saying about the LABAP VIP course:

-Cody Carson

The amount of top-notch information inside of this course is unbelievable!

Thanks to Tony and I went from an interest in auto detailing to not only making my cars and friends cars looking hot, but making big money custom buffing & detailing customer cars as well. The amount of top-notch information inside of this course is unbelievable and is well worth the small investment! Thanks Tony!

Ronnie F. – Texas

I recommend this course to anybody who’s looking to do anything with auto body and paint!

I’ve done The Research. I didn’t expect to get what I was getting out of it. The Program is Awesome! Everything is all Step-by-Step from a real live person showing you exactly how to do it. I’m 30 years old and before this course have never tried anything related to auto mechanics and auto body and paint. Since I’ve got the course I have been disassembling cars, putting them back together doing body work and painting. I recommend this course to anybody who’s looking to do anything with auto body and paint.

Steven Morris – Baltimore

Yes! Virtually all of my VIP students achieve their goals after taking the VIP course.

But if you decide to go at it alone that's completely fine, but I'll have to WARN YOU.

You can really mess things up big time!

And you'll be alone trying to figure out how to fix your mistakes...

You won't have a mastermind group to get help from or share your ideas with.

It will be a lot harder.

Are you confident that you'll know how to mix your paints correctly?

Do you know what the best air pressures are to paint with? 

Do you know the proper steps to prep a car?

What sand papers you MUST use (and it's not what you think...)

Are you willing to do a job over and over and be willing to waste your time and money?

You don’t want to make mistakes like the ones you see below, do you...?

Paint reactions that you may encounter if you're not educated properly

  • Orange Peel (Cause - Bad atomization, bad paint material, cheap spray gun, incorrect air pressure, incorrect paint mixture.)

  • Fish Eye Reaction In Paint 

  • Tiger Stripes (Cause - Improper spray overlap, improper panel blending and misting.)

  • Drips, Runs and Sagging

  • Pinholes and Craters (Cause - Improper filler application, incorrect mixture, etc...)

  • Bleeding (Cause - Incorrect primer usage, not enough primer coats.)

  • Soft and Uncured Paint

  • Solvent Pop (Cause - Improper flash time, uncured material, painting environment, etc...)

  • Paint Blistering

  • Excessive Sand Scratches (Cause -  Improper sanding, material shrinkage, not enough filler primer or glaze, poor refinishing techniques)

But Don't Worry Because LABAP-VIP Has Got Your Back!

If you do experience the paint reactions that we just covered above...

I’ll help you quickly take control of the situation and get it fixed fast - even if you're in the middle of painting, you'll know exactly what to do to get back in control.

I'll also give you some words of wisdom and help you figure out why it may have happened so you can completely avoid them the next time around.

95% of the time paint reactions can be avoided , and other times, you could have simply screwed up.

But it’s always a good idea to know why you messed up and what caused the reaction.

Either way, I’ll help you understand why and help you avoid these problems throughout your journey. 

To save you the frustration, the time, and the money of having to repaint your project twice or maybe even three-times to get it the way you want.

You owe it to yourself to check out what I’ve organized and created for you.

Here’s what it is...

I have spent over 600 hours and years of work creating a simple, easy to follow step-by-step auto body and paint course that allows you to follow and learn from on your own home computer, laptop or mobile device, and do it anytime you wish.

With my cutting-edge VIP program, you'll be able to skip the hassle, trial and error and...

Ready To FAST-TRACK Your Auto Body & Paint Skills And Get To High-Level?

Soon you'll know exactly how to shape, prep and paint your ride or any project that you’re working on with ease.

And you'll be able to do it on a limited-budget so you can save chunks of your hard earned cash and put it towards more tools and extra materials.

You can do this without paying hundreds or even thousands of dollars to overpriced auto body shops.

And you'll be able to do it conveniently from your own home garage , from a small tent outside, or out of small or large shop of course...

By the way, do you really think auto body shops really care about you or your personal project anyway?

The truth is, not really. And you probably can do a much better job and s ave a whole lot of money in the process by doing it yourself.

Again, this is not for the faint of heart either.

If you're too worried about getting a little dust on yourself or getting your fingernails dirty, then this is NOT FOR YOU.

So if you're looking to learn a whole new skill-set that you'll even gain some massive respect with, keep reading.

Let me tell you, there is no other feeling... like that ''DIY pride'' that comes out of a project after you complete it.

And all of the compliments and respect that you'll automatically gain from it too.

You'll put your dreams on hold for the 'right time' and never do it. When is the right time for anything anyway?  You'll never move forward and go through life just wishing that you could fix your car and get it how you really want it to look.

And you'll just never get it done.

Option 2.

You can make a smart choice and invest in yourself like the thousands of others before you did.
