Default So..... I finally took pics of my '84

It's nothin' fancy but I like it. 106,000 miles and a bit of hand built stuff. Started out red and rusty on the outside and tan on the in.


My trademark.










Most of what I used on my interior came from The Home Depot.


Door Panels: Home Depot, Mess on the floor: Souvenirs from my many journeys.


Behind my seat. After it was painted it looked boring, so I made a few vinyls.

Looks pretty clean even in primer. It would be sweet painted black with some chrome wheels, white letter tires, chrome bumpers, and some nice door panels. I'd drive it!

Thanks! The door panels and shift knob were a spur of the moment thing, the first at HD and the second at Wal-Mart. I got a set of chrome wheels with Radial T/A's for the summer.

I like them both, looks good. I'd like to find a gen 1 or 2 to play around with.

I love the first gens I used to have a 84 B2 also, but... we'll say it died a horrible death.

I didnt drive by in my ranger, I just turned around in front of your ranger on my motorcycle. I frequent A&A when I have hard time finding parts. Their warehouse hasnt failed me yet, as a matter of fact, I might be coming there for a/c clutch. Actually I'm not sure if my compressor is giving out, OR if its just the a/c clutch, or bearing. But I unplugged my compressor because of the whine, and now all i have is clutch drag scratching sound, so I'm not sure.
