Cool what do you do in your spare time with your ranger?

hey guys, i have a 92 ranger and i was wondering if you guys have any suggestions to what i can do in my spare time. i was thinking about buying some stuff for the interior. i really want like a carbon fiber dash plate you know the one that you remove to mess with the gauge cluster or get to the radioit is a thin piece that goes around the drivers side of the dash and i dont know the technicaly name for it . i just want to make it more like teenager truck instead of old grampa truck. I am stuck at home during the winter most of the time and i really really want to work on my truck and make it look cooler.

Go to the junk yard & find you some nice bucket seats & center console from an Explorer or SportTrac.

ok so i looked at some pictures and i think i can do most of that stuff but i just need a kind of step by step on prepairing some of that stuff for paint. i have a whole booth setup for my 64 impala so thats not an issue but my question kind of has to deal with like prepping the surface like are they sanding it or just throwin on some primer and also how can i change my gauges.. can i just buy a little mat that i lay across it?

Go to the How To's! When ever I am bored I start a new one lol. You might not be able to do many of them but its great for ideas and tons of step by step pics! I am thinking about doing the blinker and fog mod over the holiday.

Most of my spare time actually goes to my F100.

But right now i'm making some custom Ford Ovals, which was an idea that came from the How To section. I highly suggest checking it out, as others have said.
