Remember the hero nurse from last year’s deadly California wildfires? His new Toyota Tundra just got a wicked custom paint job that’s as sizzling as the original.
Last year, Allyn Pierce lost his beloved Toyota Tundra to the Camp Fire, the most destructive and deadly fire in California history. On his way to the Adventist Health Feather River Hospital in Paradise, California (where Pierce works as a managing nurse), he got caught in the fire. He survived (obviously), but his Tundra didn’t.
You can check out the pictures in our previous article. Note how the fire literally melted the plastic covering the tail and headlights. Also, the whole thing was seriously scorched.
Pierce was eventually able to make it to the hospital to assist in the evacuation, but his house and all his family’s possessions were consumed by the blaze. Toyota found out about Pierce’s story and decided to gift him a brand new Tundra TRD Pro (that’s the top Tundra trim) to honor his sacrifice.
We thought that was the end of the story, but it looks like the story continues. Rockstar Garage, the vehicle enthusiast network headed by Rockstar Energy Drink, reached out to Pierce and convinced him to donate his new Tundra for a very special project.
With the help of Team + Bullet Liner of Murrieta, California, Pierce’s pickup was given a brand new paint job meant to harken back to the original torched Tundra. It was first given a white coat that’s actually a spray-in bed liner, which was perfect to replicate the bubbled texture of boiling paint. Then it was given a special coat of brown by airbrush to mimic how the flames scorched the metal once the paint had been boiled away.
Finally, give the Tundra a big suspension lift, chunky off-road tires, aftermarket bumpers, and a custom roof and bed rack.
Pierce called his first truck the Pandra, so this is called the Pandra Pro. It was even shot side-by-side with the OG to show how the new paint job mimics the old flame job.
