my other vehicle is a 2000 f250 with a 5.4L

we were stuck with just that for a couple months.. lets just say we didnt do anything for two months lol. Far too expensive to drive around when its not making me money towing my landscaping equipment.

the cabby is really efficient and parts are dirt cheap.

I love the bumpers, although they would be cooler if they were a bit larger/post-apocalyptic

I like the interior and theme you got going on. I think you should have painted the door cards a closer color to the seats/interior.

Time for paint and a VR6T swap.

this summer the seats will be getting recovered. and i will probably redo the door cards. the white boat vinyl i used for the cards was the closest i could find to the seats.


i think the interior will end up being red carpet, black and red seats and black door cards with red blood. I really like the look of the red and black in the engine bay and want to take that scheme to the rest of the car

I love how the flat paint looks the car. Very utilitarian like a military vechicle. Outside looks clean and then you step in inside and, oh god. VW in blood is nice touch.
