Oh yeah, the plastic drop in liner is out of the question. I would go with the Line-X spray in liner, but I'm on a shoestring budget.

And as far as the headliner goes, I'm trying to save John some work because the gray factory headliner I have is for a 2-door extended cab, and it might be a pita to trim so it'll fit into a 4-door extended cab.

I found a picture of my 3.0 when it was in my black Ranger.
(Did I leave anything unhooked?)

Well, that's good to hear. I can't believe you didn't get home till 8:30!
What happened this time? Was it the phone system again?

Sorry to keep everybody waiting on an update but wet sanding is boring and doesn't look like progress in pictures....lol Well Brian wanted me to do an update with the bodywork pictures. Well I had more rust than I expected which makes the process a lot longer. Is there such a thing as too many pics????
