Re: Finally found it! My ultimate "beater"!

Man...... a good day!

Truck passes emissions on "Fast Pass" without me using the valet pin and there was no line at the station!

Then went straight to the DMV. Title and plates in just under 30 min?!?!? Unreal!

Better pics:

Re: Finally found it! My ultimate "beater"!

You fools need to do the down loads to see the pics!

These add-ons to FireFox and Chrome will allow your computer to see past the Photobucket link blocker!

Firefox:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...d-fix/?src=api

Chrome:
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...fegnfnflicjjgj

You will be able to see all the photobucket pics linked in all threads and posts.

Re: Finally found it! My ultimate "beater"!

Not sure what's uglier. My fairmont of this truck lol.
In all seriousness I bet it's a hoot to throw some gears and send it.
The stripe come off by chance/ or is it painted on?

Probably the worst dash possible. Looks fun though.

Re: Finally found it! My ultimate "beater"!

Awww, you think the truck is....... ugly??? The stripe is vinyl and I like it, but want to re-do it a bit different. I'm considering a flat black hood or maybe just the cowl. Dunno.


Yeah I'm not a fan of the white dash bezel either. The white face gauge panel is hard to read too. Likely go back to OEM on those. At first I thought it was a kinda cool touch..... but it's the only white in the interior.


The first thing that has to go is that stoopid exhaust tip........

Re: Finally found it! My ultimate "beater"!

Time to make it your own style.
Damnit I love toys- good to see the illness of messing with cars is still strong with you Troy haha.

The stripe interferes with the body lines in my opinion/ I'd leave the stripe off
I would also get some larger chrome wheels. I'm thinking 18-20" modern wheels. I'll do some searching for ya
Clean truck

Re: Finally found it! My ultimate "beater"!

As far as wheels..... I'd like to stick with a streetable drag race look I think......



White truck - yes. Blue truck - gawd no.

These with more tire wouldn't be nice.

Tough to argue against weldstars, but you'll get kids racing you consistently. Last thing you need is to lose to a bunch of wrx's lol
