Default Repairing and Modifying my 1995 ranger xlt.

Even though I just got my nice truck there is still a number of things needed to be fixed. Here is my thread where ill post all my fix ups and tune ups on the way to making my beast even more beastly. Then after I fix the thing up ill add modifications to make it the best looking truck on the road.

Stay tuned for my updates and please feel free to give suggestions on what to do.

Project 1

Put a chrome exhaust tip over my old rusted pip. A simple addition making my truck or any truck look a little bit nicer.

Project 2

Replaced the broken rear view mirror which had 3 cracks down the middle of it.

{1. Took off the old mirror and pried off the old metal button. 2. The previous owner did a sloppy job with the adhesive on the old mirror button. I took a razor blade and carefully removed the old adhesive. 3. Cleaned the mirror with the cleaning wipe that came with the adhesive pack. 4. Waited 2 min. then applied a drop of the new adhesive to the back of the new metal button and aplied it to the windshield holding it for a minute then let it set for 15 min. 5. attached the new mirror. Good to go}

Now I can look behind me with out any annoyances.
