Default Hi from Devon, England!

Hi guys (and girls), I'm Tom

I recently purchased a 2wd ranger for work, i'm a panel beater/painter and needed a good little truck to haul panels and parts around in! I came across my truck, beaten up by a builer, not one straight panel, but i'm slowly turning that around into a tidy little work horse!

just joined up to look at your trucks and get some ideas for mine, i'm looking to make it smart, but still very useable!!

Look forward to speaking to you all!

Tom

Hi Tom! I'm across the channel in Germany (US Army stationed here). Nice to know I'm not the only one in Europe on the site. If you decide to bring the truck over this way for a road trip, let me know!

Steve

Default Re: Hi from Devon, England!

got some pics of it for you!

It was terribly beaten up, not cared for at all, but i've repaired the ass end and i'm starting the front soon!

I don't know how they are in the states, but mine had a horrible black lower bumper! Not for me thanks! so i colour coded it!



The back was beaten up, it was a builders truck and things had just been thrown around in it! so i replaced the tail gate and rear panel, repaired all the dents and got a wooden bed liner made!



And for MORE_COWBELL - the 2.5 turbo diesel lump!
