carnage so far is rear pass window, pass front window, drivers rocker, lots of other body damage on the passenger side(laid it over), bent rear bumper, front drivers cv shaft, few other things i cant remeber.
mods of the truck so far consist of lincoln rear, t-bar crank, rear shackles, cut 31's, front bumper, bed liner interior, custom exhaust, water proofed everything(do some deep water crossings), snorkle in progess, and lots of custom pinestriping.
stuff to come hopefully before winter, rear bumper, roof rack, small door ladder with gas can mount, cb, fix rust.
i bought a rust free parts trooper for $300 wth a blown head gasket but could be a cracked head, its an 88 with an auto. going to steal most of the doors off it, and the rear wheel arches. also taking the front cv's, seats, and a few other things.
plans are to rebuild the engine with a ecm upgrade, cam, header, decked/stepped/port/polish head.
i do all of my own work on my truck and build pretty much everything i can for it. i also have lots of friends that have, or acces to machines so engine work is not a problem for much of an expense but i would like to keep it simple.
as said before i gt the truck for free, scored some cheap, and free deals and as of right now i am into the truck $1832.85 canadian.
thats everything from parts(plugs, wires, oil, bearings, ect), to materials(wd-40, flap discs, welding wire. ect)
things are slow, i am 16, in grade 12, and working part time filling hours for my mechanics apprentice. i flip vehicals and have done about 15 in the last 2 years. my 3 biggest projects have been my trooper, my 1990 ford earlier in the thread(302 .30 over, built E4OD with stage 2 shift it, 3:55 posi rear, 2.5" exhaust, bunch of body work, and a $2000 stereo) and my 1977 f250(460 with dove-c head, np435, divorsed 205, 60's or rockwells, 39's) build can be seen here: http://www.s4wda.com/index.php?topic=1183.0
watch for progress
