You can do a lot to a sport truck to set it apart from the rest of the herd. Altering the stance is usually option number one, followed closely by new rolling stock. These upgrades work well to change the appearance of your ride, but at the end of the day you are just buying parts that the next guy can also buy. So what do you do when you want to ensure that look your after is yours alone? Custom metalwork is the answer. Once you get beyond the standard roll pan and bumper changes, the odds of another guy performing a metal mod in the exact fashion you do are slim to none.
With that in mind, we present to you a couple of bitchen ideas for personalizing and beautifying your ride that we got from the guys at Scott's Hot Rods (SHR) in Ventura, California. This story will give you enough info to see how the job is done and what tools are used. From there, you can use your imagination to either replicate what you see or take your truck in an entirely different direction, which is always a good thing.
The Final Word
It took a lot of talent and tools to craft the metal masterpieces you just saw. It's by no means impossible for the average guy to accomplish though. If you don't want to tackle this job yourself, at the very least you now understand what's involved in the process, and these examples just might inspire a few new design ideas.
