Default $250 1992 Pathfinder Build

I bought this truck from a guy I knew through work for $250. Blown head gasket and front end damage came free along with the truck. I haven't done much to it yet, started weeding through the sheet metal damage figuring out what needs to be done. This is not going to be a showroom restoration, this will be a functional off road truck with a small lift, bigger tires and a little attitude.

We begin here...November 2017










200k miles. Chocolate milk in the oil pan. Does still run. Coolant hose burst causing coolant to spray all over the engine bay. I am thinking of just buying a good used engine to drop in when I am ready. The rest is pretty clean.

I have fenders and a hood for this. Lookin for bumper brackets and bumper but in no huge hurry, this is a ...as I have a few minutes... build. So today I went ahead and started doing a Hardbody conversion since I have all the parts already. I think it looks good so far. Nothing is permanent at this stage.




And that is all I have at the moment.

For some reason the D21 front on it just seems kind of awkward to me but more power to ya! Could be a different story though when it's all together. D21 door mirrors too? Lol

Those mirrors came with it. And yes, it does look awkward till I hang the fenders back on. I think it will look good. Something different. I should have fenders on it this weekend if the weather works with me.

Just talked to a paint shop in town, $29.99 to mix up an aerosol can of paint in my color. My wallet cringed.

Ouch, hope it's a big can. Maybe those mirrors were optional? When I googled 'finder mirrors for my swap both styles came up
