From The Driver Seat
Who can complain about new paint? We sure can't! Theresa Contreras and Luis Acosta from L&G Enterprises exquisitely sprayed Summit Racing's paint system onto the Suzuki's skin. Summit's urethane topcoat sprayed well and looks outstanding underneath the layers of clear. Nate Shrum's rendering of the Equator elicited much interest around our office, but nothing like the excitement we felt while watching as the paint scheme brought the truck to life. The one-off black chrome Speed Grille from Street Scene Equipment also looked awesome and lends a sporty look to the Equator's front end and overall appeal. Stay tuned for next issue where we showcase the Suzuki's audio and interior build-up progress.
