Need pic of 1st and 2nd gen Rangers

Title sums it up. Looking for some GOOD level right, front, left and top(and any other pick you want to take of your 1st(but preferably 2ndgen for cab and 1st for front).

Need these pics to start rendering an idea I cant get outta my head... I'll post the renderings if I can get them decent, and if my idea comes out. Dont want to let cat outta bag, but I haven't seen done like I'm thinking. Now either it has been tried and is just wrong, or I might be on to something. Either way I would like to give it a shot, a least on paper.

So.... Get me them pics ASAP....im sure plenty of you have the pics I need.

Thanks in advance.....

Nathan

If you are up to what I think that you are, I all ready have it: A 1st gen nose on a 2nd Gen cab. The look comes out the same as a Factory 1st gen. I had to do mine, as my 90 Ranger got the nose run over, badly. I had a bad cab, but good doghouse on another 84 that I had, so, out came the drill, bits, and welder.

Well, sorta the idea. My dad had both 1st and 2nd gen so I know the body lines were the same basically. I was going to do the same on a full size with a 460, but he sold it.

What I was thinking was chopping and sectioning the first 5 or so inches of the front end(first gen) removing the headlights.(like an old rat rod grille) Remove hood and fenders(discard...chop and pie cut the cab(split front window)....presto......"t-bucket"....

yeah.....i know its a BIT in depth....aint my first rodeo either....:) besides its just an idea....havent even put pencil to paper yet....

Sounds like a unique project. Go with it! Are you going to keep the "square" headlights, since the rest of the truck is square, or not sure yet, if you even DO decide to go this way?

Well, think of your typical "hood and fenders" off model A ford. I would section out width, and after looking at some pics.....actually add some height to the grille. Still havent decided on what to do with bumper, though I'm sure it wont remain unscathed. Unless I dont use it....lol.

I would probably go with round head lights, outside the custom "grille"....though again that is an idea that hasnt even really hit paper. I photohacked up some pics just to get a base. Not sure if I like it or not....or at least not in a single cab longbed....should be an ext cab sb. Probably going to ditch the factory bed anyway for something totally custom.
