Default klinger's 1998 xlt

and for those who havent seen her yet this is my baby...

first attempt at painting the dash and modding the interior. (didnt go so well)


then went to this. (turned out much better IMHO)





here are the door panels that i redid. (i know could look better but being broke most of the time sucks)


then i got a mustang dome and painted it to match the color scheme. (thanks clinton)

then i installed an ohc with buggman's led panel.(thank buggman and it still looks awesome at night)

oh and not to mention buggmans led headlight switch mod.

yeah i'm gonna go see if i cant atleast get another 40 seat to switch with the 60 that i have now and then the last thing i am doing to the interior is having them recovered black with blue inserts and possibly some silver piping and also getting a full length console aswell.... but all in due time all in due time....

well come home this morning from a long and boring 24 hour shift... but in my profession long and boring isn't such a bad thing... anyhow back to the truck... went to the jy friday and found some stuff that i had been looking for pretty much got a steal on some of it... come home this morning and figure i would start on the interior again.... i pull everything out of the truck and pull the carpet up and put in my new to me rubber flooring and then put the passenger side seat back in the truck and right now i am cleaning the new bucket for the drivers side seat.... any how on to the pics....














that donor seat was so nasty that while i was shampooing it i decided to strip the fabric off and wash it in the washer and shampoo the foam.... worked with the shampooer for a lil over 30 mins and was still pulling black shit outta the cloth.... but all i can say about the rubber/vinyl flooring is dayum........

went to autozone and got some seat covers for now....

ok well i guess it's time for an update i have been saving money for new rims and finally gotten enough to order them and then well have to put them on hold once again.... was looking under the drivers side bed and found a rust spot that had eaten all the way through the metal.... and well i decided to go ahead and spend the money now and fix it and do a roll in bed liner before i get my new rims.... will take pics of the hole and all the process of fixing it....
