I was just looking at a few projects on here.....YOU PEOPLE DO SOME GREAT WORK......So I figured tht I might post my project.....

On April 19, 2009 I purchased this 87' Ranger for $500 from a complete A**HOLE who kept pressuring me to give him the rest of his money...[I only had half of the money when I received the truck, so I told him that I would have the rest of it in two weeks...he calls 2days later and then kept calling and calling until i had all the money...]

My truck the day i bought it......















---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's the rims tht are goin on it[they're off a Mitsubishi Starion] the gray areas inside the 'spokes' and center cap are gonna be painted gloss black.......


and this is the starion itself...[jus incase nobdy knos wht the car looks like]


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My interior is now painted satin black....I don't have a pic....my sister "accidentally" deleted thm off the computer


Here's the seats.....I started the 'bucket seat conversion that i learned how to do in the Tech Library.......



Here's my dad doin the body work on the fenders....



This is what the hood looked like after my dad reattached the sheet metal of the hood back to the frame of the hood.....



Passengers bedside......



Interior ripped apart......



Drivers door.....



Passengers door......



Lower drivers door.......



Me scuffing the door jams........



The bed....Im goin to spray it with the spray-on bedliner.....[If you look closely you can see 1 of the Mitsubishi rims that are going on the truck]



---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I shall be posting more pics as the project goes on.....Please check back periodically.....PLUS I plan to throw a V-8 wit at least 425HP.......So again......Please check back periodically.....
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am eventually goin to put either a 5.0 H.O. it will be backed by a 6-speed.....
