Nitrofan's 94 Splash

New to this forum and like what I see. I posted an intro the other night and some were wanting pics. She's my baby. Bought new in 94 and will take her to my grave. Most of the mods are simple to semi hard, nothing drastic yet ( heck, it's been 16 years why hurry?). Long term plans are endless. Considering: Freshening the 4.0 and dropping an M90 on it. The typical 5.0L swap or get real crazy and tub it with the nastiest iron I can stuff under the hood ( $$$ considerations pending). I've seen some RBV's that will blow your mind and like to emulate (big word) them while not trying to copy others. If anyone needs info on what I've done don't hesitate to yell.







This next one a friend decided to get rid of his O.E. Lightning exhaust tips and well...

Interior LED conversion (easy but took time) The HVAC has been changed since that pic was taken.


Engine bay is pretty stock looking with all the mods internal


I'll probably post more down the road as I get more done to her.

Thanks for taking time to look.

Pretty clean looking, looks good.

Any pics of the HVAC lit up with blue or how you went about it? I got my cluster lights done a long time ago, but that HVAC screen panel screwed up my method pretty quick.

Needs some clear corners to match the clear tails.

Looks sweet though.

That one's killing me. I want so many different looks. Until I decide whether or not to pro street the rear end I'll probably go with a wide tire in the rear (275/60R15) and leave the 235's in front. As for wheels I've had black ones in the past but I like prostars and street stars plus others. Geez, now I want em today!!! LOL

Yea, that's another subject I'm torn on. Even though she looks like this she's still a work truck sometimes. Just last summer my dad took down some red oaks and I got the wood. Hauled every bit of it home (10 loads) and no trouble doing it.

If I do it will probably be a rake vs a drop. More like a 2/3 vs a 4/5. I'm scared a 4/5 will hinder her ability to carry heavy stuff like now BUT if anyone wants to do a photo shop to show me I just might!!!

Well a good friend made them. I believe his and mine are the only 2 that have them. Yes they are "Raptorized" decals. I was looking for something that would stand out over the norm. He designed them, I begged to no end and you see the result. Since he went to the trouble of making them I went with the highest grade vinyl, thanks to another good friend that owns a sign company.

Thanks again Haz for the help!
