For the rest of the interior, Auto Upholstery's Oscar Diaz had control. Oscar sewed up a flowing mix of red alligator in the seat centers, headrests, sun visors, sunroof shade, and even the door panels. Red piping was run around the perimeter of all the seats for a little flavor, and the Cadillac crest was embroidered into all the headrests. Bone-hued suede covers the headliner and door speaker pods, bringing the Escalade to full West Coast styling.

Back at AIC's world headquarters, Noto had a set of wheels befitting the theme of the SUV: 22/27-inch Asanti Alligator wheels fully chromed and wrapped in special Nitto NT101 rubber sized 305/45VR22/27. Once in place, the transformation from meek to sleek was completed. As of this writing, the truck is scheduled to disembark from our shores and head towards the Japanese mainland. Once you get this in hand, some lucky and happy customer of Glide Import Car Shop will be enjoying the Cadillac Escalade and all of its alligator features. Don't fret, as many more Escalades exist right here at home for you to add your magic touch to.
