There's nothing better than getting to see a unique project from behind the veiled curtain of the buildup. Unlike spoiling the plot, revealing some of the intricacies involved oftentimes piques interest in seeing the finished product, not to mention pointing out little tricks and whatnot that sometimes go unnoticed when all's said and done. As promised last month, here's a little sample tasting of a project now underway in the great Pacific Northwest--Auburn, Washington, that is.

Jon Byers and the crew at Byers Custom & Restoration are nearing completion of the shop's own set of wheels, a custom '55 Chevy Suburban--or "Surf-Burban" as we like to call it. Just in case you didn't catch the preview in the June issue with the Eric Brockmeyer rendering, we took the pleasure of running it once again. And as it stands now, the only real deviance from that original artwork is the elimination of the lower branch of flames (only the beltline stretch will remain), giving the truck a sleeker look overall. You'll all have to wait till later this summer to find out for real--stay tuned!
