Updated Pics...

Well the battle goes on... This weekend we tried to completly redo the brake system, we did new pads and drums in the rear and resufaced disc and pads in the fronnt as well as repacking the berrings. Oh yeah and some pretty paint ;) Here are some updated pictures.

As you can see not much has changed inside, exsept the new seats collecting dust. :rolleyes:

as you can see there is alot of work still ahead...the rain is really slowed us down. But what do you want when you try to rebuild a truck in one of the wettest rain seasons (2nd) in over 100 years!

Truck is looking good. Now we have the issue on some other pics. You still need to show us the young lady that will receive this restored mode of transportation. :D
 






looks alot like my dads 84 auto 2.9 4x4..his is in really good shape though and all stock..only 105k miles hopfully a future project.

Just got as much crap off as possible, then I just used this paint called rust cap or something. It kills the rust or something :rolleyes:

Glad you all like it so far ;)


As for the Pic....Well lets just say the lil sis does check in here for the latest info on her truck. I have a piture somewhere though... :rolleyes:

truck is looking better and better. Should be a nice and reliable truck when it is all said and done.

Also I have a plastic bedliner out of my 93 not sure if it will it or not but if does and you want it you can have it. It is for a shortbed.

I may or may not be around. Not sure. My cell phone number is 619 322 9832. I live kind of by Qualcomm stadium so Im not sure where your dad will be. I still need to take the plastic part off my tailgate but that wont take more then a few minutes.

Also I have the stock rear bumper off my ranger as well if he you want that too. You can look at it when you get the bedliner and see if it is any better then the one you have.

:( I just noticed from some of your pics it's a under the rail. I have to have a over the rail because of a bunch of holes on top of the rails. So I'll have to pass. Thanks anyway Rock, I really do appreciate it. ;)
 






no problem. Looks like its time to bust out the sawzall and cut it up and toss it then.
