After the completion of the Z-ing of the chassis, it was time to start modifying the stock inner fenders. Not wanting to eliminate them completely or going with an aftermarket inner fender, Alex took up the challenge to rework the stock units to make them look factory. At the same time, the firewall was repaired, reworked and painted as well.

Episode two of Project White Trash picks up with the truck being loaded up and brought home, and serving an eviction notice to some squatters and stowaways. Naturally, the bees and Black Widow spiders that have called the truck home for years don’t give up without putting up a fight. Once they’re gone, it’s time to steam clean the truck and get rid of hundreds of pounds of dirt and grease.

It's Good to be the King

Being a custom painter for the last 25+ years kind of helped when I was taking a basic, somewhat clean ’72 El Camino that belonged to my Dad and built him a pretty wild hot rod and lied to him about the WHOLE project. It was a lot of work over a period of 4 years but it’s been fun watching the world’s oldest 15 year old have fun!

Dusk 'Til Drawn

Being a bit of an engineering-minded car geek, I like to tinker. However, with respect to having a warranty, I needed to restrict my tinkering to either factory-approved mods and pieces, or just throw all of that payment-offsetting goodness when it comes to repairs. Playing the grown-up, I opted for the former over the latter, and developed a cold air intake solution using budget-friendly, mostly factory parts. Follow along with long-term Project Life Partner, my ’16 Challenger R/T.
