my ford f150 truck project

okay here is the starting picture. i know it's not a ranger but i might sell this one after im done with it.



jewler54 helped me clean my windows and polish things up so i went and took some photos of the truck.

truck with clean windows now. it looks somewhat presentable


shot of the interior


a look at my gauges


a look at my radio. okay this one has been a big issue with me. a few months after i got my truck the sound or the radio conked out and i havent had one since. i'm torn between removing it and repairing it. thoughts?


and finally for now a look at the door that has a broken window that doesn't roll down.


jeweler54 and i are going to start with sanding down and painting it again and all that. i decided (okay well ben decided) that it would be awesome to try and find the original color for it and give it a breath of life.

will update with plans.

Looks like a good project. Give it some fresh paint, a leveling kit add a little bit of lift and some bigger meats. It will look real good.

The window problem is the plastic gears in the window motor if they are electric. Hard to get to but easy to fix.
