Oh, And I just re-dyed the interior.... heres a few pics....





As soon as I can find the Spray paint that matches for the bottom part of the dash it will all match ! I hate looking at 10 different shades of RED Ugh.... but go with what you got and fix it LOL.

I just bought my daughter a 1988 Ranger. I will post some pictures soon. She already said she doesnt like the wood grain look on the dash, so we will be changing that out. I have been looking for replacement parts for some of the things i know she will want replaced, but I'm having a hard time figuring out where to get them. Also, i dont know what other years would be compatible with it. I havent had a chance to look into it much. It's in surprisingly good condition considering how old it is.
