Default Fresh paint, Pictures!

1997 Ford Ranger XLT
I got this truck last summer with 156k miles on it and it was extremely dirty, scratched, dented, muddy, and gross. I'm 16 and this is my first car aswell. This is everything I have done this summer.

Next to my dad's Miata

My dad knew a guy that worked at a body shop, and he showed me how to paint it. I did all of the sanding and painting except for the first base coat.

Kicker comp CVT 10"

New vinyl on door and krylon fusion

Fo-Diamond plate behind seats. Also if anyone knows where I can find more of these seat covers that would be great. They sold out at O'Reilys.

I really wanna be a mechanical engineer. But right now it is an option, I like to keep my eyes open.

Always do it as a hobby for cash on the side.

I know a few guys that do it that way. They make some good money. Only thing is the customers have to be understanding they are doing it on the side so may take longer

i like the diamond plate on the interior too, it gives a tough look and the interior of the doors looks great to
