2010 GMC Sierra- Snow White

Laid Out & Turbo’d

Phil Gordon
Sep 24, 2019
Las Vegas is always referred to as Sin City and is one of the most desired destinations for tourism. Aside from the bright lights, the casinos and fine dining, there are quite a lot of custom trucks. One of those custom trucks belong to Albert Vorse from No Regrets truck club. Albert isn't new to the truck scene; his '95 Chevy S-10 named Bada Boom hit the pages of Truckin back in February of 2015. At the time, he was living in North Carolina and having a minitruck seemed like the thing to have there. After the truck was sold, Albert went on the search for something bigger.
Bigger is what he found when he located a 2010 GMC Sierra in Houston, Texas. The truck was owned by a Team Billet member named Diego. It had good bones to it, but Albert had bigger ideas. He contacted Diego and for weeks, they arranged a price and images of the GMC were sent to Albert. The next step saw Albert boarding a plane with a one-way ticket and arrived at the Houston airport. Diego was waiting in the truck and for the first time, Albert truly fell in love with the fullsize GMC.

Once the payment was made, Albert jumped in the new Sierra and made the 1,500-mile trek back to Vegas with absolutely zero problems, almost unheard of for someone so used to owning a minitruck. Once the truck was home, his goal was to start the transformation to make it his own. Almost immediately, the Denali front end and valance were installed for a cleaner and updated look. The next step was cleaning up the suspension work. All of the poly air lines were removed and replaced with hard lines. The manual valves were ripped out and the 3H Airlift setup was installed. While the hardware was being changed, Albert decided to replace all the 'bags as well, going with Airlift Dominators. Air Zenith compressors were added based on Albert's preference.

After enjoying the new truck for a while cruising the popular Vegas strip as well as hitting all the local shows in the area, Albert wanted to go even further. He contacted Spencer and J from Elite Customs in Vegas. The goal was to have everything on the truck shaved and get a new paintjob. The boys at Elite didn't disappoint. Every outside piece was shaved smooth starting with the door handles all the way to the shark fin antenna on the roof. Once the Sierra was smoothed and ready for paint, the decision came back to Albert where he decided on a white with ghost pearl and blue flake that stands out amongst the neon lights in Vegas.
As an admitted gear-head, Albert didn't want to pull any punches when it came to under the hood. He enlisted Rene JR Hidalgo at Cali Fab in Vegas to install the cam. Albert handled the turbo portion himself and 6651 Customs added all the powdercoating on the turbo and brake calipers. In order to add a unique touch to the GMC, Albert ran the exhaust right through the hood, so the whistle of the turbo could be heard for blocks.

For the interior, Chevy Tahoe seats were set in replacing the standard stock GMC seats. The headrests were removed for a cleaner look. The entire interior and seats were lined with suede and vinyl material with everything plastic on the inside being painted snow white to match the exterior paint. A custom center console was added from the rear to the front including spots for a Sundown stereo system and cup holders. An iPod dock was mounted in the front for added entertainment while on those long drives.
Living in Vegas has its perks, but Albert stays away from the casinos as his money and time goes right into the build of Snow White. As a No Regrets member, the standards are high for Albert. Snow White crossed all the T's and dotted all the I's en route to being one of the finest fullsize trucks in all of Vegas. A special thanks goes to all his No Regrets members who kept his motivation going which led him to this flawless creation.
