if you want me to take all the pics of the fubared parts on the body you would go ya it needs to be painted. i need a whole new hood its really rusty underneathe also huge dents on it. both doors have BIG dents on them. there is dent on the cab by the window. the truck got rearended and the faberglass bed in the back got smacked by the bumper and is cracked and i have to do fiberglass repair there is TONS of deep gouges in the fiberglass. and the tailgate is rusing at the bottom. and you notice i have no pics right now with the front bumper and the passanger corner lence area lol...take a guess why..

oh beleave me I already thought of that. the "strip" on the side is getting taken off when it gets painted and also the 06 badges are going on but it will be the one's with the blank under the RANGER and i am going to get a Orange or black wording of SPLASH under it. i think it will look killer. i am not a shave man. no door handles or badges will ever be shaved on any of my trucks i hate it. thats just me. i am acully going to put a V8 emblem on the fender a really small one...
