I am surprised the front grill wasn't painted white when you bought it.
Looks like you got the murdered out look going on.
Cool tires too!

Ok, I finally grew tired of the crappy mazda headlights and not putting the light where it should be...on the road and not the tree tops. I bought a set of headlights for the ranger and going to work on swapping them. Just from a test fit the only things that are going to need to be done is a little trim work on the grill and holes drilled to mount them.

I'm working on changing the tan interior to black during the next couple of days, also will be adding some sound deading spray to the inside of the cab while I have everything out.

I simply clean the wheels using wheel cleaner to get rid of all the grease, picked up some flat black wheel paint fro Autozone, applied 6 coats. Thats it, nothing fancy or expensive...has held up to everything this far.

The way the truck started out yesterday...

Nice. I love a dark interior. It's just something I've always preferred.
