Talking Long Island NY checking in!

Whatsup guys!

New to the forums. Been driving around in my ranger for about 2 years and finally want to start doing some work.

It's a 2003 Ranger XLT 2.3L auto, red, 25,000 (yes, 25,000 miles). Most likely gonna start with the throttle cable mod, removing the airbox snorkel, K&N filter, HID's, SMD license plate lights and some different dome lights.

I'm thinking of painting the outside of the center console (where the stereo is) red but i'm not sure where i can find a color paint to match it.

Anyway, see you around.

Max

Welcome! Try krylon fusion, you can find it at walmart. Sand the bezel down, wash it with soap and water, dry and then paint. You can even clear coat it too

Welcome to FRF

I painted mine with the red krylon fusion and it matches pretty good.

What did you do to prep it for painting? did you clear coat it?
