Project Comanche SportTruck

So I sold my pricey truck and the Comanche assumes daily duty.

Now for a name. I've never named a vehicle, but I hear it's good luck. Suggestions?

So far here's some preview photos. Just how I got it, Ultra wheels and Nexen tires and all...

So far I've only done a couple of things, and while it is the daily I can't go too crazy.

I started with fixing a coolant leak and repairing the headliner.

Very nice! Off to a great start.



There was a white one recently on craigslist. It was 2WD and solid. I thought about it but I have way too many projects.

Re: Project Comanche SportTruck

The last owner only had it a couple months but it seemed to be a decent truck for her, it looked to be in pretty good shape and should be a solid start.

Yeah they maybe put 1000 miles on it.

Today a seatbelt replacement happened. It was a horrific mess. Bottom bolt owned me, rusted solid. Welders, melty stuff, broken bolt, drill and taps. Such a scramble to get it done so I could drive home, didn't take a single picture.

Next I really wanna get some power steering in it. If anyone has parts for that in Portland, hit me up!

Looks like a clean little truck! Really like the all black interior and it looks to be in great shape!

She cleaned up pretty good. Rough spots are still rough, but it's alot less stained and ugly.

More twist & tape wiring work located. People...

All repaired. Wonder if I'll ever stop finding this stuff in this truck.
