Our job was to design lighting that is straight from the 1980's, but years ahead of its time.
In 2021, Skeptik Innovations had an amazing opportunity to collaborate with a shop in Florida to design and build custom lighting on a Delorean that was to be featured in the in the TOYO Tires "Tread Pass" booth at SEMA! The opportunity is a huge milestone not only professionally, but personally.
I was approached by one of the most talented fabricators I have ever met, Tim Moceri about a design drawn up by none other than Khyzyl Saleem! The design was 80's style meets cyber punk and my job was to figure out the vehicles unique lighting.
While Tim worked his magic on the vehicle itself installing a one-off widebody kit and a twin turbo LS swap, I worked with an amazing designer/fabricator named Jeff Gardner who scanned, 3d printed and cnc'd the housings. In October, the housings were finished and exactly how I needed them.
We drove twelve hours round trip up north to retrieve plastic sheets (for another SEMA build) then the following day, packed up shop and drove nineteen hours straight from Pittsburgh, PA to Boca Raton Florida. I spent 3 days working on 2 vehicles barely making the deadline for the vehicles to be loaded for their trip to Las Vegas!
As a car nut, I have always wanted to go to SEMA. Not only did I get to go, I had the honor of having work featured on several vehicles in one of the most epic sections of the entire show! The Delorean continues to be featured online and in magazines and to work on it was an experience of a lifetime.
