Each one of us wants our classic pickups to stand apart from the crowd-and there are a myriad of ways for us to achieve a bit of individuality. Some shave door handles, some modify headlights or taillights, others personalize their pickups via the use of custom paint, interiors, and the like. But there is a way for those who truly want some one-of-a-kind components that they know will be exclusive to their very own truck-make 'em yourself!

Such is often the case with master metalman Cole Foster. Here Foster showed us just how easy and relatively inexpensive it can be to fabricate some custom touches that'll truly be one of a kind. As you'd imagine, Foster's personal shop truck is chock-full of neat custom touches; one is the cool stretched glovebox shown here. A dash modification like this will in itself set the truck apart from the rest, but the fabrication and installation of this neat-looking piece of custom trim serves to add the perfect finishing touch to this modification.

As you'll see, fabricating your own trim pieces isn't rocket science; all it takes is a bit of imagination, a chunk of scrap aluminum or two, a band or jigsaw, a hand file, and a polishing wheel. Check out the following images. They'll give you a good idea of how to go about it, and from there the possibilities are only restricted by your imagination.
