Project Over/Under: Part 3.5
Wrapping up the interior with LMC Truck, Grant Products, and Stitchcraft
In our continuing quest to turn our base-model standard cab Silverado into something worth taking a second look at, we are returning to complete the interior portion of the build. As you may recall, we began at Audiotistics by installing a Viper alarm as well as a JVC and JL Audio system with a custom box and amp rack behind the seat. Speaking of seats, last month we transformed out dirty cloth work truck seats into leather works of art with the help of Roadwire. And now we are finally wrapping all the loose ends and calling this interior done!
What does that include, you ask? For starters, we ordered up an ultra-plush carpet kit and matching floor mats from LMC Truck. The kit came wrapped up nice and tight in a box and only needed a couple of hours in the sun before it was ready for installation. We also contacted our old friend Revo from the world-famous Stitchcraft Interiors in Westminster, California, for a little help laying the carpet in place and wrapping our filthy headliner with a custom-perforated suede to match the seat inserts. Our chewed-up stock rubber steering wheel was pretty gross. Luckily, Grant Products came up with a solution to this alltoo-common problem with its line of leather-wrapped OEM wheels. And, believe it or not, installation was a snap, and the horn still works! Our final stop was Daley Visual for a custom window tint job on the doors. Daley uses only the finest films available and did a flawless job in less than an hour.
Even though the exterior of our Silverado is still a beater work truck, we are now rolling in total style and comfort. It’s truly incredible how much nicer the truck is to drive with a clean, custom, fully functioning interior. Stay tuned for next month when we finally begin to make some exterior improvements to Project Over/Under. And check out the whole build so far at truckin.com.
When we started this build, things were looking pretty rough. We’ve been cleaning things up along the way, but we still have a long way to go.
Once we were down at Stitchcraft world headquarters, no time was wasted removing the visors, dome light, OS grip, and everything else that secures the panel in place.
The factory felt headliner was pretty gross. We tried to hit it with the vacuum once, but it just made things worse.
