Designing Dream Rides Through Renderings of Builds- Matt Bernal
Between designing his clients dream rides and managing media production for T-Rex Grilles, Matt Bernal is a busy guy. Since we last brought you some of Matt's work, he has been on a non-stop ride doing both of those jobs as well as a host of other things that, if listed here, would probably make you tired just thinking about it. His detailed artwork gives his clients the concept they need to build with a realistic end-goal in mind. Just recently, we spotted several of his designs that had become reality at the 2019 SEMA Show including an incredible race-styled Toyota Tacoma. So we thought it was probably time to show you some of his newest renderings. When you're ready to get your next build idea down to a digital blueprint of sorts, give him a shout at: bernalautostyle.com
This flashy 'bagged and stock floor body dropped 2004 GMC Sierra Crew Cab nicknamed 'Cinderella' is Owned by Elix Alanis from Rio Grande City, Texas. While it doesn't look like this rendering yet, it is well on its way while being built at Elite Auto Revisions in Cibolo, Texas where Adam Shepherd and his crew are performing some cool mods before spraying some wild paint. The most noticeable changes to the truck will be the full glass panoramic roof from a 2018 F-150, suicide rear doors, and massive 24x9 front, 26x12 rear Intro Wheels. When the body modifications are completed, it will be sprayed with Metallic Flake Orange Base and 1990's style throw back scallop side graphics. Other plans include a cam/lifter upgrade to the LS1 engine, four 2015 Chevy Camaro bucket seats, custom audio with front-to-back center console, two 12-inch DB Drive Subwoofers, and AirLift 3H air management.
As far as shop trucks go, this is one of the coolest you can have to represent your business and haul around whatever supplies you need. David Bryson Sims III will have this 1972 Chevrolet C10 for his company, Sims Mechanical Solutions, Inc. The project is being built at Niche Motorsports in Wilmington, North Carolina to suit David's desire for a custom truck while still being somewhat practical for business use. The plan is to lower it on 20-inch Rocket Racing Wheels with a fresh coat of white paint and his company logo. That would be good enough to do what's needed but other plans for it are already in motion. The interior is being reworked with a black leather wrapped bench seat and houndstooth inserts as well as custom wrap on the dash pad. His truck will be powered by a 383 with a Holley EFI system on top and the exhaust will come out of custom side exits in the bed. Sounds like one awesome work truck!
