Picked up a donor wiring harness from a 99 Ranger 4x4. Anybody want some spaghetti?




I also laid a coat of primer on my custom Explorer radio bezel so that I could get a better view of the high and low places.



For those who don't know, I took two Explorer radio bezels and grafted parts from each of them so that I could end up with a Ranger 4x4 bezel with fog switch.

That's pretty sick!!! You should do a two tone on it. What color is your interior? Black?

I'm thinking of a dark blue. I have that strange dark gray interior, so I'm a little limited as to what I can do.

You could do a dark grey bezel with dark blue racing stripes up the middle. Then do similar two toning on other pieces.

Ehh, I'm not a big fan of stripes on this truck. I do need to research the available blues and see what I think will look best.

That's what I'm thinking. I'm debating a slight metallic as well.

That would be nice. Have you considered polishing your dash to make it darker?

Not really. I swapped a black interior into my F150. That truck usually gives me my dark interior fix. lol.
