Default and wondering...

...if it's okay to be a Mazda owner here?

I am a 47 year old Data Analyst who likes to dream of and build things.

I have owned my 'new to me' truck for 5 days, though technically, the title is still in the works.

My truck is a 1999 Mazda B2500 SE with the standard 4 cylinder, 2.5 liter engine with a standard 5 speed transmission. It's 98% Ford Ranger from what I have been told...

I hope to finish the tweak repairs and touch ups before any modifications, though they wont be anything mind blowing, just comfort how am i going to lower the seats or create a custom console...etc.
