If a custom truck was broken down into a pie chart with each modification representing a slice, the largest pieces of the pie would be paint and body and suspension. A custom paintjob has the ability to make or break a truck. Awesome suspension and interiors are cool, but if the truck lacks an overall appealing paintjob, there goes the Best Of trophy. Dave Timm's GMC is lifted high on 40s, but what really catches your eye is the multiple colors of paint with intricate airbrushing all over the truck. Jeff Schroeder of Attitude Airbrushing in Springfield, Illinois, is responsible for the tricked-out paint scheme. He shared with us how he transformed a stock, white Sierra into the cover truck you see here.
If you have to choose between paint and TVs, go with paint every time.
