Examining the Chevy from front to back, we were completely impressed with the little things that Kurt did not overlook, but rather made custom and improved upon the original design. After talking to him about the build, he said the process was " a lot of fun, but it's even more fun to drive." Telling us that the project is never done, he mentioned a new paintjob might be in the works. We can't imagine messing with something that looks so darn good, but if it turns out better than this paint scheme, maybe we should keep our mouths shut.
Originally painting the truck with realistic blue fire, Kurt felt the truck didn't stand out enough, so back to the artistic drawing board he went. Looking at the hood, he didn't like the abrupt HD-look of the leading edge. Chopping and sectioning the hood brought it down several inches and now the front end looked much more sleek. After some trial and error, Kurt developed a two-color realistic fire system that he had never seen before. With his airbrush gun filled with custom-mixed DuPont Hot Hues green and blue, the entire Chevy was forever engulfed in flames. Patterson Paint supplied the DuPont paint and Kurt even airbrushed several pieces of the interior with realistic fire to match. Kurt shaved the tailgate handle and went old-school with some pinstriping and then smoked a pair of GMC taillights. Grimeez Custom Paint continued the custom treatment by removing the orange reflectors from the headlights, smoothing and painting the front valance and bumper, and also flaring and rolling the fenders to help the tires clear. Other cool parts added to the Chevy included Grippin' Billet door handles, a Precision Grille Phat Tube billet grille, Street Scene mirrors, and a steel roll pan.
