Default 84 Ram school project

helped a buddy of mine redo his cousins 84 Ram...i have some pictures of the process and figured id put them up for your enjoyment

truck specs

84 Ram Royal SE Prospector
318 4spd with granny low
4x4
145,000 miles


tear down pics






first thing we did was shaved the snaps off the bedsides/tailgate for the tonneau cover and sanded the inside of the tailgate down





and then the real surgury started lol...here is the pass. door with the bad section cut out


the rust on the drivers door wasnt as bad as we thought it was


heres the drivers door all repaired


and heres the patch in the pass. door...used panel bond which is as strong if not stronger than a weld and there is no chance of warping it


heres what the pass door looked like all finished in primer


and then i started working on a small rust spot by the tailpipe


heres the finished product


and then i cut the wheel arch out and we had a surprise waiting for us lol


heres the installed patch


unfortunatly i dont have any pics of the finished product

drivers side patch was a breeze here is the finished product


and then we started the painting process...started with the inside of the bed


and the next day we painted the rest of the truck

Reminds me of my old ram, mine was an 86, that same color too!

That tailgate was off of a 89-93 ram though, not a 84

reminds me of my buddie's '81 he had.... slant 6, 4 speed stick, 2wd. we beat the hell outta that poor little truck and it still refused to die.



he also had a black '82 military spec 1 ton, 360, 4 speed, 4x4 that was badass but pretty rough, and an '89 3/4 ton that i wanted before he bought it, 360 fuel injected, auto,, 4x4 red & silver with a red LE interior package. wound up having a dead trans as well as a messed up front diff.
