The Broke college kid project log

Well id figure id start a project log to note the work im doing on the ghost.

First just a couple pictures of how it sits now









removed those ugly steps!



I also rebuilt the fuel bowl and removed the fuel heater element.

But when i removed the line of the FPR the damn threads broke off in the nut so im gonna go yard jumping to find a housing and some other mis matched things i need

i guess i should tell you my plans also.

Im picking up my ZF6 tomorrow and will be putting it in also

put the stock dash cluster face in.

Fix the little rust thats on it and then put rhino lining in the bed and the sides up to the body line.

Find 2 other aluminum wheels and then mate them with 33's

Find a new drivers seat and also re-upholster the headliner.

Fix the misc. electrical gremlins

Then New bumpers front and rear and grill guard

new projector/halo headlights and halo fog lights

retint windows

Motor:
S366 from Irate DIesel and supporting mods needed
rosewood stage 3 hybrids injectors
ts 6 positon with Bills tunes
t500 HPOP
Regulated return w/ fuel bowl delete

Exhaust:
MBRP 4" stainless single stack kit
6" Mitre cut stack

Thats the plan anyways!

I cant promise it will be fast as im still in school for a year BUT i can promise it will be detailed as i like to write tech articles

I cant wait to get the injectors and glow plugs in and then just being able to drive the ol' girl around.

The warm weather project is gonna be fix the rust issues on the cab corners and the little bit starting on the rockers and then line the bed and rocker panels with rock guard/ bedliner (just like the ranger above)

The Broke college kid project log

I know your young hell I'm 29 but I still act like I'm in high school lol but man the stack on a white truck not good if your anything like me i keep my truck clean and I put a 6 inch mitre cut stack on my truvk and it looked awesome and sounded awesome but man it kept my whole truck covered in soot but to each his own. And by the way nice truck and it's good to see you doing your own work knowing how to do your own mechanic work saves tons of money in life and saves you from crooked mechanics
