Radical Renderings by Chad Canning

Rendered Rides

Feb 15, 2016
Chad Canning, the designer behind Rendered Rides, has his roots in video games. A 3D modeler since ’01, his formal education came from a healthy dose of self-learning and mastering his video-game modeling skills. His first real design job was adding color and texture to a computer game, while he dreamed about starting his own design business. He has only run Rendered Rides for the last few years on a part-time basis, but with projects like this, it’s only a matter of time before he is creating renderings full-time. This young Nova Scotia resident focuses on the vehicles that fascinated him from a young age. Sticking with mostly vintage builds, Canning has separated himself from other rendering artists by taking bold chances with traditional designs. He morphs them into truly creative builds.

This ’65 Blazer is an ongoing project from Rtech Fabrication. Carved from a ’65 Suburban, this definitely non-factory model is being created to show what could have been if the Blazer had started out a generation earlier. Riding on ’71-’72 suspension with Bilsteins, and using a static drop, the idea is to create something that is as factory looking as possible. The frame will be shortened 10 inches between the wheels and another 6 inches in the rear, and a 402 big block will reside up front. As the Blazer was created from a chopped ’Burb, the top will be retained and given some fabrication magic to transform it into a removable hardtop. The exterior is to be coated with Mercedes Silver, and the factory seat frames lavishly upgraded with leather, while still retaining the factory pattern. Rtech will use this build as somewhat of a blueprint to be duplicated in the future.

Superfly Steiny built this ’70 C10 with the help of Tootsies Hot Rods to have all the coolness of a roached-out rust bucket. Its original patina is enhanced under many clear coat layers to create a surface that is smooth as glass. A Porterbuilt front and rear Extreme Dropmember and AccuAir eLevel helps the C10 sit low, while an LS and 4l80 combo make it scoot down the road and smoke the 22-inch Intro wheels when necessary. The interior is decked out with a Dakota Digital dash, Vintage AC, and full Dynamat to keep all the outside noise from spoiling a good ride. Marques Design door panels and a dash panel round out the custom interior design. This stunner turns more than a few heads with its way low stance and 45-year-old paintjob. It shows what a lot of elbow grease a well thought out design can create.
