looks awesome. What type of abrasive disks did you use to do your grinding?

Thank you and I used various grit discs. The flapper was 120 and the finger sander I used 80/20. Then with the orbital sander 180

Dang that is a good lookin truck! Cant wait to see more of it! I notice you changed from a regular bed to a flareside bed, do you still have the regular bed? If you still have it and are in my area Id be interested in buying it.

Got some more work done on the ranger, made a Roll Pan for it, also made a video showing a good chunk of how it was made to anyone interested

Its been a while since an update, but I ended up finding a engine to swap into the ranger eventually. Super happy I found a Gen 3 aluminum vortec/ls engine out of a Gmc Envoy. I made a video with more of the details below
