From The Driver Seat

A fresh new look has given us renewed desire to drive Project Novakane again. Before the paint and bodywork, our GMC suffered from its damaged exterior and gave off the impression that the truck was a pile of junk. Nobody would have known that underneath all those bumps and bruises was a solid suspension backed by a playful engine combination that could really get the heart rate up. Now the murdered-out satin finish turns heads almost as fast as the raging exhaust note of the LSX and Magnuson. The bare metal stripes look perfect against the dark sheetmetal and match up quite nicely to the machined and black coating supplied on our BMF Novakane wheels. We couldn’t be happier with the way the vision came together. Great job L&G.
