Default 1996 Ranger- Project Nearly Complete--- well ready to start modding lol

Ill let the pictures do the talking... basically bought this truck last fall as it was in the pics... changed the color from light silver to a dark shadow grey met. Replaced both fenders and passenger door... pulled and filled over 100 small dents in the bed... replaced the nasty interior... upgrades to come- double din (w/ nav), fog lights, replace suspension, new wheels and tires, and currently restoring a 289 hipo out of a 67 cougar to drop in it when the 4cyl finally dies.
Bought the truck like this for $250


This is what the interior looked like when I bought it.


Ill show interior remodel first. New carpet from stockinteriors.com and seats fabricated from 99 dodge caravan






Now for the body work.



lots of dents in the bedrails



color change to dark shadow grey metallic



you get the idea

Cab almost back together


what is looks like as of a couple hours ago

That looks really good. I would like to learn to do that. I would much rather do that than what I'm currently doing for a living. LOL. Great job.
