Default Fresh meat from Chicago.

Hi all. My name is Eric..21 , and I live near Chicago, IL. I drive an '00 Impala LS.. My girlfriend has a '02 XLT.. and we've been browsing the site looking at little stuff we can do to improve her truck or make it a little more her own over the past few days. I came across the Ford Ranger Forums on a Google search for a how-to on grille removal as we're thinking about painting hers this weekend since it's an old, faded gray now.

Here's a few shots of my car if anyone's interested..




And here's a few of hers after we spent a day detailing it back in August.




Glad to find a site like this.. actually have been looking around for the past few hours and learned quite a bit already. She doesn't know I signed up yet but she's pretty excited to start with the little stuff on her truck and I'll show her the intro thread tomorrow or the day after.
