With the paint being a major focus point on the car the interior was going to be important, but not in a way so as to be more dominate than the exterior of the car. Sean trusted car club brother Tattoo Tony, who hooked him up with Armando's Custom Interiors of Hemet. Armando's dropped in a neutral peanut butter tone interior, which featured blue/turquoise metallic inserts. They also built a center console and dropped in bucket seats that were accented with the leather wrapped floor. The headliner also received a touch of leather, as the design was spread through out the interior. The interior was accented with chrome and Clayton Machine Work accessories.

By this point the build was in the home stretch for Sean, who took the car to Richard of Evergreen Hydraulics, to set up the car for the hydraulics. Sean then ordered a custom setup from Black Magic, which was installed by his club brothers John Hererra and Albert Gonzales. With it being crunch time before the show, Sean's house looked like a GM assembly plant, as everybody that was able to help or support came by to assist. Ziggy helped with wiring the NOS head lights and trim, and Frank and Gil Melendez built the custom clips to hang the side Euro trim and rocker moldings, which were polished and plated by Victor of Best Polishing and Chrome of Pomona.

With Coker tires and Dayton Wire Wheels in hand, and several barbecues hosted by the Barbecue Mafia, the long journey to completing this build was finally finished, as this car made the Super Show. People had told Sean that it couldn't be done, and that actually helped to drive him towards the perfect name for his car; "Us & Them." Sean said, "There is "Us & Them." US/the ones who will sacrifice and do what it takes to fly a Lifestyle plaque, and THEM/everyone else who cant handle the pressure of building a car like this.'" We couldn't agree more.
