Default Restauration Progress... 1 month after

Well pals, here I post some picures of my Ranger progress.
Its been 1 month, and several things have changed since then...

The day I picked "her" up:



slowly... the restauration began:



The engine bay... dirt and grease accumulated since 1996:




1 month later...

Body polish, full interior disamble and cleaning, new synthetic oil (Amalie), new filters, new belts, original wheels, new radio, chineese power windows and alarm removal, new fluids (all... absolutely all fluids) and new Camshaft Synchronizer (waiting for arrival... thanks to Ranger01)

The polish is very hard to detect in the pictures as the truck is white, but belive me, face-to-face... the colour totaly changed!!!







engine bay clenaed...





The "new-old" interior...



Well pals... as soon as the restauration progress moves on... Ill be posting more pictures, hope you like my work!!!

As a gift... my friend┤s 1989 Toyota Hilux, 2.4 Diesel:
