Re: SEMA Ring Brothers K5

Wow, that's impressive! The rear cargo is some type of interior material...not a spray in liner. Very cool.

Re: SEMA Ring Brothers K5

Jeff,
The video said they made a fiberglass mold of the interior and shaped/designed it to their liking., That's an interesting idea and not too difficult.

Re: SEMA Ring Brothers K5

They did a really nice job of making a modern truck with a nod to history. Very well executed. I really like the way they did the interior, very nice work. Often i find these SEMA builds to be garish, to the point of being cartoonish, but this one is very nice.

Re: SEMA Ring Brothers K5

Just got back from SEMA, and yes, that truck was awesome. I'll post some pics of it later. Ring Brothers really make high quality cars. One of the nicest cars at SEMA was another one of their builds, a Javelin. There was a total of 5 Blazers at the show this year. SEMA has become a truck show for good reason, it's what people want. Street Rods are now dead. The first time I attended SEMA was 11 years ago, and back then it was all Street Rods and Hot Rods. Amazing how the market has changed in a decade.

Re: SEMA Ring Brothers K5

I just remembered that I never got a side shot of the Ring Brothers Blazer because of the crowd around it.

Hood wasn't open when I was there. Knew it would look as nice as the outside.

That cover looks a hell of a lot better that the factory plastic intake.

The steering wheel was the first thing that I noticed. Why did they use that turd of a wheel when there are so many other better choices out there. Could have been an opportunity for a nice custom wheel.

Re: SEMA Ring Brothers K5

I agree on the cover. I like to see the engine. I think those are more for sound suppression.

Well, if you use a truck engine with it's ugly intake, you'll definitely want to use the cover. Think of it as a paper bag for that ugly date you brought home.
