It would be easy to say that you can recognize Abel Rocha's airbrushing from a mile away, but that would be an insult to the amazing amount of detail that is apparent in his work. From 50 yards away, the airbrush work is eclipsed by the blue, silver, and custom-mixed green. The tribal graphics offer plenty of contrast, and onlookers are drawn in to take a closer look. Once you step closer and realize what lies behind the green paint, you'll want to spend some time picking up every subtlety of the airbrushed skeletons and demons. If you open the door, you'll see Abel's handiwork doesn't stop on the exterior. Even the doorjambs weren't ignored when wrapping the Ford with graphics, and the interior features even more vivid airbrushing.
Valley Custom Audio built the fiberglass center console where you'll find more skulls and skeletons on the inside, but on the center console is a she-devil and two more female forms that appear, in contrast, to be very much alive. Matching the smooth fiberglass console, the dash and door panels were also smoothed before Valley Custom Audio installed and wired the stereo. A Pioneer AVH-P6800DVD head unit is the brain that sends signals to a 17-inch plasma mounted in the center console, as well as the speakers scattered throughout the cab. Eight Polk Audio 6-3/4-inch speakers and their accompanying tweeters, two in each door, provide the mids and highs, while two 12-inch R-Series Alpine subwoofers thump from between the rear seats. Concealed below the subs are Rockford Fosgate amps. From Mike's driver-seat vantage point, a full array of Auto Meter gauges were molded into the dash and center console. These help him to keep an eye on the truck's vitals, including the front and rear differential temperature, exhaust gas temperature, boost pressure, and transmission temperature. For a steering wheel, Mike chose a half-wrap BAD Carnage, what else?
Mike managed to transform this Super Duty in 18 months, and it still looks good-despite the miles that he's racked up on it. It's a testament to the quality work that was done, and Mike is quick to point out who's helped him along the way. Mike would like to thank Santa Clarita Off Road, Northwest Auto Body, Valley Custom Audio, and Abel Rocha, for the hard work that went into building his F-250.
