87 Mazda b2200 Project

http://s363.photobucket.com/albums/o...r/The%20Mazda/

I know it aint a ford, but it has been my other project for along time and its almost comming to an end. Will be done the body work probally in the next 2 weeks, just got the canopy so have to shave and block it all now too, and paint will be done before march 17th..
heres just a few pics of it in my buddys body shop right now, bad pics cuz there is 2 months of Body shop dust on everything.
Oh and i finally got my Ranger headlight kit in for the mazda, decided to put a lil ranger in her LOL

truck detail...Full shaved body:Handles, antenna,pillars, rear tail gate handle, gas door all moldings.
rear end is California special, cadi tail lights, roll pan, removed handle and frenched in license plate.
Full air ride suspension, C notched with C channel in box. Lays on frame
6 lug HUB cnversion
engine is a rebuilt 2.0L with a 5 speed "rare they are usually 4 speed from what i understand"

will be adding more pics as we move close to paint. Color is picked out, paint alone cost me $1700 and the paint is being done by a local painter who paints for a lot of old hot rod guys and other car club members

Looks like alot of hours went into it, hopefully it turns out the way you want it. For your color, did you go with something out of a catalogue or with a custom mix? like any flake or pearl? The paints that are on the market right now are sick. Also, I don't know why but recessing the license plate diagonally across the tailgate never makes sence to me don't you want to keep it low to make a smoother transition across the tailgate.?
