As you may remember, Tim Donelson's '08 Chevy Silverado was on the cover of Issue 5 in March. You remember the one, all white, super clean, amazing suspension, yeah that one, well he is changing it. We gave you a teaser back in Issue 13 in October, and now we have a picture of what he has done so far. Unless you were at Heat Wave or Border Bash 2010, you won't recognize the red flames. Tim decided to go with something completely different with his truck and had red flames painted almost the full length of the truck. This raised some eyebrows as to what Tim had jostling around in that brain of his.
Since Border Bash, Tim has been painstakingly working on his project to get it finished up. The interior has been torn out to be completely rebuilt. A restored '54 Ford dash is being fabricated, as well as new door panels and a new sub box. The body is off the frame and the engine is nowhere to be seen. The Art Morrison mandrel-bent framerails have been cut-off to make way for a dirt oval racecar style rear end. The guys at Ekstensive Metalworks are building a completely new suspension. The Giovanna 26s are being replaced by new Giovanna 28s. Finally, the red flames and white paint will be sanded down and covered in coats of what Tim describes as "Bud Light blue." As you read this, Color Blind is finished, again. Keep on the lookout for the full feature coming soon.
