Then, the truck was covered in color, courtesy of DuPont Hot Hues. Over the factory black, Theresa applied DuPont Hot Hues Red Hot Meltdown as the base color and accented it with Smooth Yellow, Molten Orange Candy, and accented by Gun Metal Gray pinstripe lines. To top it all off, Theresa airbrushed the Chevrolet Bow Tie and Silverado logos to the tailgate, then the bed was topped off with a Leer Series 800 lockable tonneau cover, and a Wise Industries carpeted bed liner was installed underneath it.
While the truck was still drying, the interior was basically gutted and the seats were delivered to Classic Soft Trim, whose aftermarket seat division took over and transformed our black cloth seats into leather. The black and red suede inserts are supple to the touch, and do an expert job of complementing the aggressive appearance of the newly redesigned interior.
While awaiting the seats return, the truck was sent over to the audio kings at Audio Innovations in Glendora. Once there, Joe Provenzano worked over the stock system by adding a complete Sony Mobile Xplod audio system, complete with DVD player. In addition, four replacement Xplod 5-1/4-inch component plate speakers are now powered by two Sony four-channel amplifiers. The coup de gras was the pair of Sony 10-inch subwoofers, which were added to a custom box fitted behind the rear seat. For back seat movie-viewing pleasure, a pair of 5-inch color LCD headrest monitors were installed, as well as an additional 5-inch monitor to the factory center console. Almost all of the factory dash pieces were removed, then recolored in the Hot Hues Red Hot Meltdown.
As if the trucks weren't flashy enough, we went one step further and partnered up with a leading West Coast performance boat manufacturer, Eliminator Boats, to build an equally impressive 27-Daytona cat hull. It was colored in the same matching gel coat as the truck's exterior, then fit with a Mercury Racing 525 EFI big-block engine attached to a Mercury Racing XR outdrive. Capable of speeds exceeding 80 mph, the boat was accessorized with a long list of items, purchased via marine mail order giant CP Performance in Rohnert Park, California. CP Performance also owns Hardin Marine, so a set of hand controls were outfitted to the boat, as well as all the billet accessories that really set the boat's overall look. Side air intakes were hand-crafted and follow the unique oval shape of the Street Scene mesh grille material. All of the billet items were powdercoated to match the DuPont Hot Hues Gun Metal Gray.
