then redneckstone came up for a visit and brought me a present with him a sliding rear window for the truck.. and again a big thanks goes to zach thanks buddy.



then came the process of painting this truck is was starting to look bad and wanted to get it done this year before winter sense i dont have a paint booth and need warm weather. so off parts came flying lol



then came sanding. i hate sanding with a passon but it has to be done lol


then ordered some primer from summit and i was pretty inpressed with the stuff great quality.



then more sanding wet sanding that is this time.


now for the color free paint too cant beat that left over from the batmobile in the garage lol.. i went with hot rod satin black. wanted that old school hot rod look with a touch of gloss..


did the door jams 1st then a few days later i sprayed the truck




and finished product. and i must say shes one sexy looking ranger now lol. ordered a new front bumber sense the old one was beat up pretty bad. still waiting on it.






theres still more left to do. and ill update this thread as it happens
