08 F250 Makeover - Trim interior and accessories
I'm trying to drop my 08 quick. I need fuel economy now more than horsepower, desperately!
Problem is, it's rather hard to sell in it's current condition because somebody may assume it's been junked.
It has no tailgate, the rubber interior is cut, the back seat is missing and the trim and options are slim.
Tailgate: buy a truck net
Mirrors: replace standard mirrors with tow mirrors
Grille: Paint to match body
Headlights: Replace with aerodynamic up-trim option
Interior floor: remove rubber and Hurculine it
Rear seat: ???
I need to mainly know these things.
1. Will the up-option aerodynamic headlights fit and function in the place of my fleet-vehicle?
2. Will the manual tow mirrors work in place of the stubby standard mirrors?
3. I want to put a rear seat in, but what is the cheapest option? With the tailgate, the cheapest option was a net or bars. I want to do the same with the seats, in that, I want to save money and get some sort of special accessory rather than an OEM seat. Say, seats with compartments underneath or seats that fold this way or that. Anything cheaper than OEM from a pull-a-part yard?
Also, it had decals on it from work. There's traces of them still. How can I remove all traces of the decals?
I need any help I can get in making this truck appear more valuable. Thanks.
