They say that true beauty is on the inside-highly negotiable-but with the frame complete, Jeff began work on a very crucial stage, the exterior. With the help of a few of his buddies from Autobody Excellence, Jeff and company shaved the door handles, driprails, gas tank door, trim, and molded in the roll pan to give the body a cleaner look. Now that the exterior was nearing its final stages, the only thing left to do was find someone to paint it. Luckily for Jeff, a painter by trade, he figured if you want something done right, you've got to do it yourself. Therefore, he shot the '84 C-10 with a fresh coat of PPG Electric Blue.
At last, the project was nearing its end, and it was up to the guys at Auto-Stitch to put the finishing touches on the truck. The truck was fitted with a '98 Chevy Tahoe back seat. The stock door panels were smoothed, leaving no armrests or interior handles, and then wrapped in gray vinyl to match the seat. To add that little extra to the inside, the billet accessories were painted to match the Electric Blue exterior.
With the stunning end result of his truck and a new baby on the way, the only thing left for Jeff to do is sit back and take pride in his craftsmanship, and serve as a reminder to us all what the saying "Don't Mess With Texas" is all about.
