my new project truck

Like the title says this is new my project truck i got it for 500 bucks and there is pretty much multiples of every thing. i got some dreams for this thing but right now it is going to sit and i am going to sell most of the stuff that I donít need. i am also going to use this thing as a base for most of my fabrication ventures. Its just one more thing to add to my project list.

there are two other colors that you don't see and they are red and gold. ya this thing is an unfinished project that the craigslist seller started. the windows and minors were going to be being converted to power. which the interior has been completely gutted but i do have it all. plus the trucks original 3.0 motor was swapped out for a 4.0. which i will be asking for some help trying to figure out a way to get it running (been looking at TRS library). but other then the motor swap the numbers match. :)

it is going to be my class room.
learn to advance my painting skills, getting more in depth with the electrical side of things, learning to get a computer controlled motor to run, and a prototype base for my fabrication skills ie. bumpers tube and plate, sliders, cage, sub frames, and lt suspensions. plus any thing else i think of.

RF member your thoughts too would be great. on what else i could do to the truck to advance my skills.
