When it comes to building trucks on a budget one of our go to gurus is Mr. Ernie Macias!
You might remember his Rags to Riches build, or from his time at the magazine. He builds tons of minitrucks and even old school cars, one after another for pennies on the dollar, and when we approached him about shooting his "Back to Basics" Mitsu for this month's special cover he was more than stoked! But he also showed us some of the tricks of the trade when going with that classic minitruck feel. The Zolatone beds ruled the showgrounds for years before the nicer and more costly bedliners came into the picture. Follow along and see how easy it was for Painter Shak Mike to get Ernie's Mitsu set for the early `90s look. For more information, contact the company listed in the Source box.
