Default Hello from paradise Ca!

Hi Guys and Gals,

I recently bought a 1989 Ford ranger and looking to do some major work to it ... it has:
149,000 miles (or so i was told)
Manual Tans.
NO powersteering
NO A/C unit
its like a purplish blue color
very crappy interior

but the best thing is i bought it for ..... $ 400 !!!

i call it a steal .. it runs, and is reg. until january of 2011 !! so ill post pictures of it soon i just need time (Work Alot)

so when i post pics tell me what i should do first (that will improve looks and gas milage )

I bought it as a commuter and hope to make it look great .. thanks guys i hope to learn much on this forum as it is my first actual truck (i have owned 5 cars and currently own a 2005 dodge caravan)

Ok guys,

I recently took photos of the new truck. Sorry if they are low quality .. as they are from my cell phone but here it is ...

Tail



Passanger Side Ext.



Front



Dirty Engine Bay



Drivers Side Ext.



Rusty And Old Bed



Damaged Driver Side Of Bed



Driver Side Front End Damage



Nasty Interior (Much Work Needed)




I think thats it... i really need a different than "Periwinkle" paint job .. buy, will be one of the last things i do ... so besides cleaning , what should i do first? i want to make it a good MPG commuter and i would like it to be comfortable then ill mod and trick it out
