I love this build, even though I'm not too big on bodied trucks. Always nice to see someone go completely outside the box. Interested in seeing the rest of the interior come together

my plan is to go two tone paint outside, preferably a stock blue and white scheme that ford offered in the early 90s. carry the white and blue inside the cab on dash and lower doors. white leather on Bench with blue piping. really want to try and make the whole truck look as stock as possible. going to run door handles, fuel door, third brake light, tailgate with handle, rear bumper etc.

I had an old 50's style Ford dash that I was going to put in a 89 Ranger. Can't remember what car it came out of. I sold it before I moved to Texas. I really wish I would have kept it.

Can't wait to see how this truck turns out.

Great job, its fun to do it your way. Add your own personality to the car, everyone's not going to like something but it's your truck.
I'm not into the slammed to the floor style but I'm not against it by ant means. The dash is an awesome touch and it looks great. I had 2- 55's when I was younger so I'm a little partial.
I'm only putting in new bucket seats, carpet and new custom console. My big project is installing a 1948 Chevy rear window in place of the factory window. I am also going with a custom 2 tone paint scheme, Dark metallic green bottom w/ creamy yellow on upper half.
I have a 2001 edge stepside that I have torn apart in my garage also. Check out "Christmas comes early for project outrangerous" . I'm doing a mild make over with the body, I did a 4.6 swap a couple years ago and it was time to take care of the body. Look up "Project outrangerous) for the motor swap.
I'll be following you.
Be safe, heck we don't need any body to tell us how to isolate ourselves.
