CORONA, Calif., Oct. 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- West Coast Customs (WCC) ends season two of their hit show with a bang on VELOCITY. Inside West Coast Customs, where audiences get a front row seat to outrageous car builds, will feature music and pop sensation Justin Bieber and his extreme car request in the episode called "Bieber's Caddy." On November 6th, 2011 at 8:00 PM ET/CT Inside West Coast Customs works with Justin Bieber and GM to create the sleekest CTS-V on Earth. Watch as the crew takes a 2011 Cadillac CTS-V and turns it into the world's ONLY blacked out suicide CTS-V.
"It's not every day the world's most influential and powerful teen sensation comes into my shop. But when he came in with so much positivity, creativeness, talent and direction, I knew this would be a great build. Together, we created something that Justin didn't have…. the sickest CTS-V on Earth, that even exceeded Justin's expectations," said Ryan Friedlinghaus, CEO of West Coast Customs.
The crew will start out with a brand new red Cadillac CTS-V, courtesy of GM. Then, they quickly get to work and tear the car down to its bare bones. Bob Grant works on converting the doors to "suicide doors," using custom hinges built by Bobby at Sadistic Iron Werks. Then we follow the car as it moves onto the body shop where the matte black paint will be laid down. This car will have custom JB badges designed by West Coast Customs made over at Billet Badges, where the center star of the logo will be pressed to open the doors.
In the interior, they will keep the stealth look, going with black leather and suede from Hydes leather. The seats will be stitched with Bieber's signature purple. Justin's logos are also brought into the car, but the interior logos have been covered in black Swarovski crystals, hand-placed by Kellie over at Crystal Ninja. Nothing on this car seems to be untouched – even the headlights are replaced with LED Oracle lighting headlights. In the trunk of the car, they will install a custom sub-box and amp-rack with Diamond Audio speakers to make it feel and sound as if he were in the studio. And finally, the Asanti wheels will be all blacked-out to match the car and then wrapped in Continental tires.
Friedlinghaus and his shop have been doing exclusive custom builds for the MTV show Pimp my Ride, TLC's Street Customs, Street Customs Berlin and now on his new show on the new VELOCITY, Inside West Coast Customs. Friedlinghaus and his crew are world-renowned for their extreme vehicles, outrageous features and unique designs.
Catch all the action on Inside West Coast Customs, Sundays at 8:00 pm ET on VELOCITY.
