Default The Touch Of Grenth

hey there members... i will be updating this thread very very slowly due to A; lack of cash, B; lack of skill, and C; lack of time lol ....

First of , I own a 1989 ford ranger that is bare stock ..... very very neglected, and only cost me $400 .

well here is my ranger













more pictures to follow and as i said before this will be updated slowly....

my plans are to install bucket seats, do the interior Red/Black or Orange/Black (not sure as to which yet). i would really like to paint it anodized bronze and change all accents to chrome , i plan on painting it via roller with rustoleum high gloss enamel (i am very familier to rolledonforums.com). and do minor here and theres to it ... thanks for looking

The third picture, the tear, looks like ripped plastic. Curiousity says, 'what did that?'

Guess you know you will add $1000 to the $400 cost and spend all your spare time for a year and end up with a $400 truck that still isn't finished. That said, life is filled with projects and if you have a share-mate happiness comes from sharing little pieces of completions.

Your net gain will be tools and knowledge. And an oath never to start a project like that again. Some of the tools will be in your tool chest and other tools will be in your arsenal of acquired skills.

Enjoy, my friend. My recommendation, should you choose to accept it, from a life long projecteer whose rope is down to tattered threads: -when embarking on a large project, choose something which when completed will have timeless value. Take pictures alone the way to share with your grand progeny and provide memories of the little hurdles you overcame.
