Well here is the cab off I think I am going to end up using the floor pan from the explorer and cut it down. There is just to much cancer on this to justify using it

update

Well here is the latest update not much work completed been getting ready for Christmas so progress is slow.

I managed to get the black splash in and gutted the interior with the help of my daughter .
We got to the floor removing the "tar mat" and checked it out. It is in real good shape but core support is hosed. So we will repair the cancer or replace it all together.

Got the doors off and rolled it outside to start on the rear doors. I started with the blue ext cab doors and broke the rolled over seam on the inside door.

This is how I took the seams apart I used a pair of wire cutters and ground one side of the jaw flat to line up with the edge of the door

And then the black splash door.

Kind of neat to see them like this


We found the moveable window of the rear explorer door has the same curve of the ranger the only “ issue” we are going to have is the explorer glass has a square edge.

So I think I have to incorporate the top of the explorer door where the seal is to get the correct shape for the top edge.

passenger rear door

Well, everyone sorry about the length of time since last post. Winter hit us with 70mph gusts the Sunday after Christmas . Took part of my Roof so I had to repair that what fun being on a Roof for 8 hours. The Sunday before my Family hosted the Christmas party for the relatives what a day that ended up being 2 plus feet of snow at least it was a white Christmas.

Ok with that said, lets see the progress after looking and thinking for a long time at the doors also getting my stomach not to churn about cutting the doors up. I started with lobbing off the front of the door for the rear pass side.

Next I cut the rear upright support off the black door to use for the front of the rear doors and started forming it to the front of rear door

Bob, looks like that door could be made just a little bit smaller. Or are we looking for different glass?
