When embarking on an elaborate custom truck project, having a clear plan for the truck's desired modifications inside, outside, and underneath is essential. It helps the build-team stay focused and gives the project its own identity from the get-go. Part of the original plan for Project Red Rocker was a classic Corvette-themed interior featuring two raised humps in the dash and a waterfall-style center console, between the two bucket seats, that would flow toward the back of the cab and curve around the seats-similar to a classic Corvette. We left the bulk of our project with Hill's Hot Rods in Lubbock, Texas, whose owner, Jason Hill, commissioned professional audio craftsman Jimmy Davis at Vision Audio-also out of Lubbock-to create the dash, center console, and rear cab structure.
Jimmy is an audio installer by trade and has years of experience working with wood and fiberglass to create subwoofer enclosures, so we knew our project was in good hands. Working off of our explanation and following an interior sketch drawn up by Truckin' tech editor Bob Ryder, Jimmy went to work and Project Red Rocker's Corvette-inspired cockpit came to life. Follow along as we show the creation of Project Red Rocker's hot rod- and retro-styled interior.
