The Big Wood Project had a showing in every publication that covered SEMA. It also gained an appearance in the first airing of the television show Rides. Heading back to Alabama to have the interior finished up, Brandon was excited to not only see the completion of the project but to make the rounds for the 2004 season. During the next season, he made it back to SEMA and also attended an additional 35 shows, winning such titles as Best in Show, Best Paint, Best Interior, and Mayor's Choice. With two years' worth of car shows, countless wins, and features in multiple truck publications, Brandon's Big Wood Project definitely lives up to its name.
