    2 Questions answered

    1. Paint is original, allthough it is starting to age so a re-coat is due.
    Paint Code is: YN = Silver Metallic

    2. I will hunt down some more pictures for you if you want but it was quite simple. There was no Limited valances around when I was doing this so I took some of the black Garden edging available at Home Depot etc. and rivetted it onto the original little one.

    With the rolled edge at the bottom, I was able to insert a steel rod which I bent into shape so the corners would hold true after I heated them up to mold the curve.

    I am currently working on a more seamless look by fiberglas'n up a duplicate that will be paintable. She has been put to bed for the winter already, and I have a long list of TODO's I want to get done for next Spring. Half of those I already have the parts for - its just a matter of time...

    Oh and Brian if that is about mine - I thank you...

    shopping for drop kits and i found out that i can use the coil springs from a 1994 ranger on my explorer (1993) is that correct? or do i need anything else?i know i need to do a block in the back im just trying to find out what i need so far

    what im looking to order from what i gather
    2 in drop coil Beltech
    4 shocks front and rear

    im trying to fit 18*9.5 +6 offset 225/40/18
    only reason is because my gen 1 needs tie rods spindles bearings shocks and tires are bad because of alignment i want a nice drop nothing crazy
