The paint and finish work are what make the S-10 stand out. And by doing it on a budget, Quesada pulled off the win. He also chose not to make extensive body mods, choosing instead to rely on the quality of his painting and fabrication skills as well as a few bolt-on parts. For example, he made a bedcover to hide the air tanks and rear air suspension out of sheetmetal and square tubing. He also installed a fiberglass roll pan, a Harwood fiberglass hood, and APC taillights. The bed cost $100, the APC taillights took $125, the roll pan was $75, and the hood was $175. The total for the exterior, less paint, was $475.
