Default Hello all

Hi my name is Brian
was referred over through myspace.
i see my MASMF club president is here too "foxxyfiveo"

i own a 1995 ranger splash
purchased it dirt cheap as fully customized show truck that had been neglected for a couple years.
main purpose was to be a daily driver to "rest" my thunderbird turbo coupe.
i started remodding the truck by removing the interior and putting in explorer console, ohc, leather eddie baurer buckets and autolamp/dimming mirror.
i put on a 4x4 bumper valance and 93 splash grill. 2000 ranger taillamps
the truck HAD purple tribal flames and is in the process of being done in flat black.
i have been working on the body for the past few months as the roll pan had cracked and the tailgate delete plate was rusting from behind.
the truck is lowered 3/5 , with ibeams in front and fliped axle in rear, but i added 2in lift shackles so the truck wouldnt bottom out. i also have explorer "tear drop" 15x7 wheels on it with 235/60 on the front and 295/50 on the rear.
i have basically almost put the truck back to stock, but added and kept the minor small details. i making this truck the way i want it to be and enjoying it.
i dont have any engine mods other then a K&n, its a 3.0l v6 auto. with a 2.5in cat back, with a thrush muffler and a "tucked" exhaust tip at the back right side of the roll pan.
here are a few pictures, thanks! awesome forums!
the top is as of two weeks ago at its current state

this is month ago before i started on the doors and fenders

the reason i started on the body work, that is the tailgate handle delete panel that the previous owner did not prep correctly and rusted form the inside out

i have a whole thread started on my Tbird club forums on the step by step progress of the truck if you are interested : Project "back to black"
thansk for looking!!!!

Hey Brian, welcome! Glad to see you already recognize some people here.

That's some nasty looking rust, can't wait to see how it looks like all finished up!
