I started by trying to salvage a recent paint job done by another shop. It didn't work, despite all of my efforts. Next step... Strip the truck to bare metal and start over. This time, there was no blistering, wrinkling or anything else except a nice paint job.

The truck went to 1 show in black, then the customer decided to change directions (he no longer liked black after sitting all day at an outdoor show with his black oven as the only place to avoid the sun). He decided that his lack of funds problem was outweighed by his total dislike of the black paint, plus by now, he was getting a real big discount on the work.

It was at this time that many of the current changes were made. The truck was shaved of nearly everything that stuck out of the body, including door handles, tailgate handle, gas door, taillights and more. The door edges were rounded, like a 50s custom. The rollpan was welded in, replacing the rear section of the ground effects kit, which replaced the original rear bumper. Next, an LED strip was Frenched into the rollpan and a power antenna was Frenched into the back of the cab, replacing the stock, non-moveable antenna that used to stick up off the front fender.

The holes in the back of the cab and the front of the bed are for speaker tubes for the 12" subwoofers that the owner made himself by fiberglassing round heater vents into 4 foot long tubes for his massive 4000 watt subwoofers. Those are no longer with this truck. The owner of the truck ran out of money for this project (and lost interest in it, to be honest), as he bought a 2005 Chevy SSR, seen HERE. I painted the true flames on that truck for him as well.

This truck underwent a complete transformation. Here's a short list of what is already done...

  • Complete Xenon ground effects kit.
  • H.I.D headlights.
  • Power window conversion (regulators from a 2001 Blazer, not yet installed)
  • Shaved door handles and locks. Electronic poppers inside, remote controlled outside.
  • Shaved taillights.
  • Shaved tailgate with remote operated tonneau cover and tailgate (electronic actuators)
  • Rounded door edges (50s style).
  • Shaved fuel filler neck (filler relocated to inside of bed).
  • Welded-in roll pan with LED taillight strip and hidden hitch (hitch currently not installed).
  • Frenched power antenna in rear of cab.
