Default 1985 Ranger. Another picture update, if your interested. New paint inside and out.

Hi-ya everyone!,
This up date is about a new paint job inside and out and the bumpers too. Although the paint isen't cured yet. After curing, (90 days) it's wet sand with 1500 then 2000 than 3000 grit wet sandpaper. Should be able to comb your hair using the paint as a mirror when done!.. It was in a neighbors garage for a little over a week. 3 coats.

I'll post new pictures of the inside after I'm done doing the inside too. Take a while, but it'll be worth it... Updated the web site. Come and have a look... Also, leave a comment in the new comment box found at the bottom of the pages.

Seems there are a lot of you guyes following my progress... Thats nice to know.
