Rad­i­cal Ren­der­ings

Truckin - - TABLE OF CONTENTS -

Artists of all types are not only born with their tal­ents but learn to de­velop them over time. It may start with a sim­ple in­ter­est in cre­at­ing mu­sic, build­ing some­thing with power tools, or, in this case, putting tools of an­other kind to work in or­der to cre­ate some­one’s dream project. As Matt Ber­nal’s skills evolved, the tools he used to ren­der his clients’ dreams moved away from the ones he pur­chased from the art store when he was younger. The art he now pro­duces has helped to build his com­pany, Ber­nal Auto Style, into an equal peer of the artists Matt once con­sid­ered idols. His fas­ci­na­tion with me­chan­i­cal art led to this point in his pro­fes­sional life. Whereas most peo­ple see a ve­hi­cle as a way to get from here to there, he sees lines, shapes, and pos­si­bil­i­ties for mod­i­fi­ca­tions or artis­tic in­ter­pre­ta­tion.

Start­ing out in the au­to­mo­tive in­dus­try as a spokesper­son, Alyssa Kay got bit by the bug to which many of us have suc­cumbed. This ’70 Chevro­let C10 project is her sec­ond build, fol­low­ing her ’67 Cadil­lac de­but at the SEMA show last year. As the si­b­ling to her Caddy, this pickup will be named “Her­man­ito,” the Span­ish trans­la­tion of lit­tle brother. The classy-yet-rus­tic feel Matt was go­ing for when draw­ing it gives it an aged feel that will be high­lighted through­out the build. The ex­te­rior will fea­ture a Pearl Root Beer House of Kolors shade sprayed by Chad’s Auto Glass and Cus­toms with ac­cents of aged bronze and aged wood. A full frame is be­ing built by CB Chas­sis Prod­ucts with the air sus­pen­sion uti­liz­ing prod­ucts from Slam Spe­cial­ties and Ac­cuair to lower the body. Other plans in­clude FiTech fuel in­jec­tion, Resto­mod air-con­di­tion­ing, All Amer­i­can Bil­let en­gine dress-up, and more.

This cus­tom F-150 is a spe­cial breed of project built by Brad and Doug De­berti for NASCAR driver Joey Logano on the Dis­cov­ery show Twin Tur­bos. As part of Matt’s ren­der­ing tasks, he pro­vided a se­ries of graph­ics pack­ages and de­sign op­tions for Joey to ap­prove. The De­ber­tis spe­cial-or­dered the pickup di­rectly from Ford, and it will sport a twin-turbo V-8. The re­sult of this project is a full long-travel, tube-frame, wide-fen­der race truck. It has been wrapped in Flat White vinyl.
