Inside the doors, the cab was sprayed with Second Skin insulation material before it was painted to match. Making the cabin even quieter, Dynamat was laid down, as was new black cut-pile carpet, and new weatherstriping. A factory dash was treated to Classic Instrument gauges, Vintage Air A/C vents and controls, and a Kenwood DVD head unit. A Wilwood pedal assembly allows precise braking and shifting, and a Billet Specialties steering wheel keeps the steering inputs both comfortable and stylish. Finishline Interiors, also in Mooresville, built the seats and wrapped them in black and red leather. Simpson race harnesses are mounted to a bolted-in bar behind the plush seats and serve notice to those onlookers that this black beast means business. Also located behind the seats are two JL Audio subs and a JL Audio amp, supplied by Freeman's Car Stereo, that were installed in a stealthy enclosure.
All that was left to do was for Jim and his Street Customs and Restorations' crew to hand the keys to Mike and see how the ol' truck drove. A smoky burnout and an ear-to-ear grin later, the truck passed its maiden voyage and has since been driven to and fro many custom car and truck shows in the area. "It's amazing how well the truck handles, and that thing really goes with more than 500 hp", Mike excitedly tells us. Whether terrorizing the track, beating up unsuspecting people on the street, or winning shows, this truck can literally do it all and do it all very, very well. Using "Who are these guys?", as their shop motto, Jim Smith and his crew use their knowledge and skills of building muscle cars and race cars to exceed a customer's expectations. We're pretty sure after this truck build, the word will get out and their new slogan will have to read, "Yes, we're the guys that built the black C10 in Truckin'."
