    went and got a new project truck today. its an extended cab 1998 Ford Ranger XLT with 2xx,xxx miles on it. heres a link to pics of it:

    the 98 pictures by BaggedSplash - Photobucket

    this is gonna be a complete project truck and i plan on taking my time with it and do it right the first time. plans include to lay body on chrome 20s, flat black paint job, old school type interior and a sliding rag top as an example of things i wanna do it.

    its a decent truck. the body is fairly straight. 1 rust spot on the gas door, a slight bulge of where something hit inside of the bed of the truck and pushed it out a little bit, bent front bumper and a bad motor. may just replace the motor instead of fixing it (the number 6 cylinder is shot). the interior is kinda dirty but its nothing that can be cleaned up pretty good. thats about it i guess.

    OH!! in case you all were wondering how much i paid for it, i paid $100 for it! the guy wanted it gone and he gave me first dibs. so yup, $100 isnt bad for this new project truck's price!

    Flat black paint with white walls, 351 junkyard engine or even a ford flathead v8 with a manual 3 speed transmission with custom suicide style shifter, and make one hell of a rat rod out of it.

    I wanted to do a c10 once with a old gm 3 speed in it. For the shift linkage I would set up two flat bars side by side all the way up. Have a hurst style shift knob cut in half and place both halfs on each one. one side shifted forward would be reverse, shift back would be 1st. the other bar would have 2nd and 3rd. The rest would just fall around with some road warrior style junker rat look.
