Rookie of the Year

A Build of Firsts Makes the Big Time

MANY PEOPLE OUTSIDE OF THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY HAVE THIS BIG, GLAMOROUS PICTURE OF WHAT ITS LIKE TO BUILD A CUSTOM TRUCK FOR THE SEMA SHOW. As weve mentioned before, its not exactly a walk in the park or what everyone thinks it is, and its a much larger undertaking than many are capable of living up to.

But that didn’t scare Jack Frith, owner of Fiction Fab, and Oscar Quinterro away. This insane full-custom K5 Blazer build began back in January 2018 when Oscar reached out to Jack with a digital rendering and asked if they could possibly meet the deadline of SEMA 2018. The two sat down and discussed a game plan to make it happen. On Feb. 1, the K5 was dropped off at Fiction Fab.

Now, to anyone who’s read the gnarly SEMA timelines and build deadlines, that might seem like plenty of time, especially since some work had already been started. But after digging a bit deeper, they soon figured out that it would all have to go, and they would have to start completely from scratch.
