To get the body up to par with the chassis and running gear, Mark left the bodywork to Jim Michaud, also in Phoenix. Jim shaved the handles, trim, and wiper cowl before simplifying the rear with a roll pan and welding the tailgate shut. The careful observer will also notice that the front fenders have been flared just slightly to allow the 24-inch wheels and Toyo tires to tuck in when aired down. The turn signals and taillights also met their end by way of a welding torch, with vertical LED bars taking their place in the tailgate. New rear wheelwells were shaped with a constant radius, while the new raised bed floor was fit with an oak floor and stainless steel stringers. With the welding, grinding, and filling done, Jim took on the laborious process of priming and blocking the truck's long panels to ensure a perfect foundation for the House of Kolor True Blue Pearl.
The interior of the C10 was stripped clean and the dash was welded smooth for a fresh start. Vintage Air A/C and an Eclipse DVD navigation head unit were mounted within easy reach in the center of the dash where Steve at Definitive Audio took over the stereo work. His custom center console and rear cab wall were filled with Memphis audio gear. The 12-inch sub in the center is powered by a Memphis amp located under the driver seat, while the Memphis components in the custom door panels and kick panels are powered by yet another Memphis amp under the passenger seat. Once Steve was done giving the Chevy plenty of audio power, he turned it over to Todd at The Interior Shop in Phoenix, where black carpet covered the floor, then thick brown leather was wrapped over the door panels, rear cab wall, and seats. Thick baseball-glove stitching added a little more texture.
