Paint & Exterior Goodies!

Now that we have a solid suspension, brakes and engine performance we needed to make sure that the exterior followed suit. Settin Trendz in Fresno, California could not have done a better job. For the exterior a mix of Spyder Auto, Street Scene, Settin Trendz, BedRug, Bushwacker and AVS products were installed.

We dropped off the truck with Jeff at AVS for a bolt in door popper kit and alarm. Jeff installed a bolt in door popper kit (part number TBA), pre wired wiring harness, interior rocker switch and an alarm system. After Jeff was all finished up the truck went over to Settin Trendz to begin the transformation.

Settin Trendz used their own custom made filler plates for the door handles and stake pockets. Adam has designed form fitting end caps to be used with the steel Street Scene rollapn. (Street Scene Part# 950-71128)

After a few days in the hands of Settin Trendz we ended up with this

Roadwire Interior & Sound Stream Audio

When you drive a lot you want a comfortable interior and some jams. Roadwire was the first company to come to mind when discussing converting our cloth seats over to leather & suede. We decided to go with a Black Leather base with black suede insert topped off with red stitching. After a few hours at Fresno Unlimited for installation we ended up with a perfect result. Note: We didn't use the headrests because we thought it looked bitchin' without.

As you know we bought a WORK TRUCK edition of the Regular Cab Silverado. We couldn't add a Roadwire kit without swapping the vinyl mat to a custom made carpet kit by Fresno Unlimited.

Now on the the tunes. After using Pioneer headunits in the past we picked up a Navigation Touch Screen Pioneer headunit. I picked up a PAC GM29 module to maintain all the factory chimes off eBay for about $25 and a Metra install/wiring harness kit for $20.

Chris and his guys over at Dynamite Car Audio in Clovis, CA were ready to get their hands on the truck to install the goodies we received from Sound Stream. Sound Stream sent us over a 10" subwoofer from their Picasso line.(Part# PCO.10). To power their subwoofer we received a 640 watt amp. (Part #PN5.640D). To finish off the sound system we used a Sound Stream components kit and speakers. Dynamite Car Audio finished off the simple and clean interior by wrapping a custom made speaker box in matching black suede.

Stay tuned for more on the SEMA build!
