I made an $8 paint booth to keep dirt/dust out of the paint as the tailgate got painted.

Here it is dry. I haven't put it on the truck yet because I can't find the mounting hardware. It's lost somewhere in the garage. Lol

I took the ranger out for a quick drive today. Then I snapped a picture of it before I spent the entire day raking leaves.

This is one sick ride. My bro-in-law plays with this type of hobby. I will say you have far more skill and probably patientce than I ever could to turn a beater into a sweet daily driver.

My only question is....Do ya got any more pics of the interior?

Congrats on your hard work (time and patientce included), may you wins some trophys with it, and my no thieving A$$hole take her from you.

Thanks. I haven't really done much with the interior yet because I'm not sure what I should do with it.

I actually took it to a carshow right after I got it running and driving. I didn't even have a hood or tailgate on it yet. I won a first in the mini truck class. It was neat! Even the old hot rod guys were standing around my truck looking at everything. I had to demonstrate the air suspension so much it made me wish I had went with a nitrogen take rather than a air compressor system. Lol

Nice truck. You for sure have some talent and fab skills. You could've just raked the leaves with your truck; its low enough.

Now that would have been a cool picture! I should have piled a bunch of leaves in front of it as if it was pushing the leaves. Lol. Why didn't I think of that?

The engine is out and on the stand. I wanted to replaced the main and rod bearings because I had a low oil pressure issue at idle.



Turns out it has TRW Forged pistons in it. I was thinking it had the stockers for some reason.

And back together.. I had the block cleaned, brass soft plugs installed, new cam, crank, and rod bearings. The crank was polished, mains were line honed, I installed a new oil pump, double roller timing set, and of course, the GT40 heads that I had all redone.
