Nice, my new house doesn't have a garage, just an extra living room (and yes ive thought about smashing out the wall to make a heated garage). But that's all good because right now I'm more interested in an ATV, a snowmachine, and a damn expensive jet ski as future toys rather than workin on the truck.
did some more tinkering. Did a Ranger headlight swap instead of buying a new drivers headlight. I had some spare lights layn around so why not Also I picked up a mazda protege hand brake to swap in instead of the crappy dash mount e-brake, their no fun haha. Anyways onto the pics.
lights are just sitn in there so they are not strait but you get picture. Maybe should headlight mod them too idk
hand brake assem.
mocked up in the area it will be. I will have to make a new console out of mdf and a boot for it. But I wanted to make a new one anyways cause the old one had no storage space or cupholders
yeah It turned out pretty good. I'm going to get them wired in and get them mounted to the core support today. Now I can put some sweet HID's on the truck. I never wanted to do it on a lifted truck so maybe on a lowered one I'll try it.
Also headlight mod, yes or no? I'm still undecided
dude, headlight mod all the way. It just flows better with the dark color of the truck. DO ITTTTT!! Or do this, take your trucks lights off(very easy to do) and then put them on the mazda. Just take a pic of that and post it so we can see if we/you like it or not....?
By the way, I love your frame pulling technique lol
thanks! yeah its growing on me a little more. I think blacking them out will be better. and then I'm going to wire in the ranger blinkers to the mazda side markers and basically do the blinker mod.
Got the hand brake bolted in. It fit really good and I had a good space for it in the tranny tunnel above the driveshaft. I am going to mate the mazda cable with the protege cable tomorrow and try it out. Then maybe this week I'll get working on the console quick, since i have plans for getn some mdf for some audio for both trucks.
sitn in place
Punched the hole for the cable
then got the handle and cable assembly mounted
looks like it was suppose to be there. will blend a bit better with a console around it.
Here is a pic of the hardware I'm using to mate the cables together. I have to work on the driverside more to make the cables pull straighter. I will have to come right off the section on the leaf pack. The pass side I had to do the same thing, I had to remove the bracket that is right by the gas tank so I could get the cable to aim straight at the other cable instead of making such a sharp bend. It didnt want to pull very good.
