My First GMC S15 Mini Truck Photo’s and Information
After having the truck for about 6 or 7 months from what I recall, I had it painted locally by a gentlemen who didn’t think I was entirely crazy. The paint job I wanted was somewhat popular within the mini truck world, but in my hometown it wasn’t common at all. He painted the truck in a bright neon blue with metallic paint over white. Man it was sharp! Unfortunately this is the only picture I ever had of the truck after it was painted.
Now the products and equipment I used in my truck was not top quality stuff. It was what I could afford or trade for at the time. But that didn’t bother me a bit. I was to happy for the fact I even had a vehicle to begin with. Especially when I was delivering Pizzas making $2.75 an hour plus tips.
A good friend of mine, Danny Ogg, helped build and install a custom speaker box, utilizing the entire bed of the truck. We used treated press board to frame the speaker box as you can see below. Then we installed two 15 Inch Legacy Subwoofers powered by a single Jensen A432 Amp mounted behind the bench seat.
Two Phase III 3-Way Speakers were mounted above your head for the mid-range sounds, along with new door and dash speakers. Forgive me, I don’t recall the brands, but they were pretty solid speakers. A new Pioneer KE-3750QR Super Tuner Cassette player was used to play all the good songs.
The dash was taken apart and painted with plastic model car paint, hand brushed I’ll add. But in all honesty, it turned out pretty good. But I never had any pictures of that to my regret. I even painted the instrument gauges all to match the exterior paint scheme.
