Paint/Bodywork A crazy two-tone yellow-and-green base with airbrushed skulls and dry-brush striping that separates the two main colors was created and brought to life by Steve Van Demon at Absolute Custom Paint in Anaheim, California. The truck was shaved and smoothed by Doug Starbuck in Riverside, California.
Interior Eric's Auto Upholstery in Placentia, California, used two-tone vinyl with custom embroidery and a custom headliner to bring everything together. An MIC switch box was wired in and sits behind the truck's shifter for on-the-fly ride-height adjustments
