So i got a few pics to post up here....first one is as i found her, she did not run or drive and had been sitting for about a year....

Image

I replaced the fuel pump, plugwires, cap, rotor,coil and she runs like a champ ...ITS ALIVE! (i know your jealous of my nascar tires)

Image

so i have had the car about one week now and have started working on the only bad rust spot on the whole car, Pass. rear door was repaird at some point and was kinda lousy workmenship and rusted right in the middle of the lower panel... so i sanded it down to the metal around the rust spot :)

Image

Image

so after alot of sanding and a rust removel wheel i put down a coat of rust rust inhibitor (the purple stuff in the middle there)
Image

after more sanding its time for the filler...

Image

and then even more sanding, and a second coat of body filler...

Image

little more sanding and primer...

Image

Image

not bad for a first timer ...now i just need to learn to paint :D

That looks hawt! If you could adjust the fitment of the ranger bumper a little I'd say it's a keeper but I guess it kinda depends on the look you're going for.

Yeah, the Ranger bumper is fit over the 5 mph bumper it fits ok but would probably fit better without it. also, i want it satin black :)

Im having a hell of a time getting the cressy running right so everything else is on hold until i can nail it down...
