Mercedes G-Class Customized to Raise Awareness in Men’s Mental Health


Andi Mai, a young Sydney-based consultant who also dedicates his time to helping men cope with mental health issues, recently shared a story about a recent makeover he did with his Mercedes-Benz G-Class in partnership with Raptor King Customs, V.G. Auto Paints, and Raptor Coatings for the cause.

The Mercedes G-Class Customization Process

The custom G-Class referred to as the “1 of 1 Adventure G Wagon” features a unique, personalized, complex design made from scratch by Mai through Canva. Then, it was later presented to Andrew Murphy of Raptor King Customs who graciously accepted the challenging job of putting it into a reality.

In the hands of Raptor King Customs, in cooperation with V.G. Auto Paints and Raptor Coatings, the G-Class underwent six to eight layers of Raptor Spray costing around $1,000+ in paint alone. It had three layers of black undertone, three layers of green on top, and a black reverse spraying on the top.

The project was totally gruesomely tough and long as each layer required around three to four hours of dry time. The presence of many individual components in the design of the auto made the work extra challenging, too.

Installing the custom decals was considered to be the most challenging part of the job due to the presence of many elements in its design and it required a more detailed and specific method of application. Sticking and heating the decals really took a lot of time in the project.

The decals had trees, clouds, hikers, and multiple mountain ranges as its highlights, which took about two days to accomplish alone. Overall, its method of application required such a high level of focus, precision, and time. In fact, Mai said they even forgot how many parts there were in this design due to its complexity.

The process involved sticking, heating, slowly peeling, and re-heating the decals to the black undertone coat of the custom G-Wagen. Once done, it was sprayed with a green layer on top and the decals as well as the tape was peeled off after drying the paint application.
