Throughout the week I covered every inch of cab floor and rear I could with sound deadening and cleaned the seats ALOT, new carpet came Friday, installed today. Also picked up a set of cheapo wallyworld seat covers. Sound deadening IS NOT FUN to install. But overall I'm pleased, looks better, smells better. And I found 2 more coin pesos. Test drive tomorrow after I button up trim

That looks fantastic!

I replaced the burned out dome light bulb and worn out brake pedal pad.

Wow, looks great! I was going to take the doner 93 carpet, clean it and make it work in the 97 Ranger Rig, but I’ll rethink that now. Good job!!

Buy it, build it, and drive it like you stole it
Pinto rack.
We have an old mustang 2 behind my dads. I think its similar to the pinto. You could probably have. He may make you take the whole car though haha. It's been hammered in the rear. So a tow bill may be more expensive than it would be worth.

Installed intermittent/delay wipers in the 87 V8 truck today, then cut and hauled half a load of wood to a buddies shop.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

I’m moving pretty slow, but I’m going to have a rust free straight 87 short bed short cab with doors later this summer. I’m taking the bed, & engine & trans are gone, & I’ll probably grab a few other parts. I’ll rig up a tow bar and make sure the tires are round and black if you rust belt guys want it. All you’ve got to do is come get it...

Scrubbed the lovebugs off the windshield. The season had officially started.
Yep, SpringTime driving anywhere around the GulfCoastSouth,
need 2 extra gallons of WindShieldFluid + Windex + ScrubBrush in the vehicle & WaterHose handy at home,
just to get a few miles down the road.
Nasty LoveBugs are a true Biblical Plague !!!
