Tbars Project "X" begins

First and foremost my ranger is my favorite truck...I will not let any of you fools try to talk me into changing my new project into some rock beast, lmao...this rig is just to go camping and fishing in and thats it...it took all the money i had to buy and the seller was great and is a new member here....thanks rick, the seller that is...

I have never as much sat in an explorer and today was the first time i opened a door on one...

It needs alot of tlc and a new 4.0 motor as the current one is seized...It needs a bit of paint work as the clear coat is shot and the front fenders are a different color....

Notes
1) Kbabiak, you need to make some pre-made shipping tags with my name on them as I will be needed a bunch of little parts...
2) Admin Rick, I sent my new membership dues in at 8am this morning as i was hoping to be a new X owner...
3)All elite members, I am going to need alot of help and parts for my new to me, 91 XLT

Wow, i've gotten so accustomed to the way it was it looks like a totally different truck now. The painted lights look right at home now.

...before i forget, this was my formula for the color...;)

.....i used the fenders to make a somewhat custom color out of spray cans...i painted aluminum paint first (and it looked bitchen), so i had a bright base that would cover the red, then i used a truck grey metalic over it...i sampled just the grey over the red and it was dark, dark grey...
...now i wish i could do the rest in a day but the failing paint on the rest of the truck is going to take some work...:D
