Behind the Scenes With 2018 Battle of the Builders Competitor Steve Keefer

By Rachel Tatum

Steve Keefer’s ’70 Chevelle placed among the Top 10 Hot Rods in the 2018 SEMA Battle of the Builders competition. Watch this video as Keefer gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the vehicle. The four-year project includes several modifications, some which are subtle and could be missed to the average consumer. Keefer notes that all of the fabrications were done in-house, including the front bumper, spoilers, engine cover and more. He adds modern touches to the vehicles, including LED dapper lighting and a touchscreen monitor to activate windows and lights.

For even more in-depth look at the SEMA Battle of the Builders competition, tune in Friday, July 5, as the one-hour television special airs on MotorTrend TV. You’ll see Keefer’s Chevelle as well as dozens of other top vehicles from the 2018 SEMA Show.
