noob on the block

Hey Everyone, I just picked up an '02 Ford Ranger 3.0 V6 with 47,000 miles. I'm not new to forums, or to modifying vehicles. I've got plans for this truck, nothing major yet (though the 5.0 V8 swaps I've been reading about sound fun) I'm a composite engineer in San Diego and do composite work as a hobby so if anyone is looking for carbon fiber or fiberglass work let me know!

here are a few pictures of my new pickup.

Just finished my first mod :) hi-temp extreme heat enamel Heat proof to 1200* F

I decided the dinky looking stock exhaust looked out of place all rust colored, so i sanded it down and sprayed it black. I'll post pictures later. (its a half *** job past where you cant see, i figure when i get to changing the exhaust out i'll paint it black all the way up)
