Ok this photo is basicaly one step in my modification process...It's pretty much stock except I dropped it 3" in the front and 4" in the rear,added a spoiler,5% tint,and wheels



Now here's a picture of it in the semi-primered stage.....
Since the first picture I added a chrome bumper,a rear roll pan with dual exhaust coming out the roll pan....I also bought some sport mirrors to replace the stockers...I sheet metaled the bed shut and made it seemless and reattached the spoiler and fiberglassed it in so it has a smooth look,,,and also welded the tailgate shut and made that seemless....


I'm also waiting shippment of my lowered spindles and rear leaf springs that will lower it another 2 inches.....

I am also gonna try to convert the 2.0L it has in it now to maybe a 302 or 351W,,,But I'm leaning more towards the 302......and you bet thats gonna be all hooked up :)
But the truck itself is a 1987 Mitsubishi and I got it off a friend for absolutely nothing and runs good.....I haven't decided a color yet but I was thinking of whatever color my Sentra is getting painted it'll probably be the same,,,,so this way when I start going to shows I can park them both side by side......
So what do you guys think of it so far????
comments or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.......

Big plans, eh? Sounds good to me, ever think about doing air bags? Or just go with the springs? The front looks like the syclone kinda. Good work so far, I wish I knew how to do that kind of stuff.

Hey, if its free then it sounds good to me! If you can squeeze a V-8 in there, that thing would be a monster. Looks good so far. Much better than a free truck should! You have nice friends. :D

First vehicle I ever drove was an '89 Mitsubishi Mighty Max pickup. That was a great truck. Mitsu's don't usually last, but that truck went almost 200K. Mine was slow as a snail, but it sounds like you're beefing it up to make it haul. Keep us posted on your developments! Good luck, and go Mighty Max! :)

Well I figured that seeing our cars don't have much going for them at the moment I'd grab it and do it up,,,,it hasn't cost me all that much so far.....Plus it's keeping me busy I hate just sitting here and not being able to work on my car....but I am gonna start sanding down my Sentra when I am done with this so I can send them both off to have them painted.....

Hmmm....I don't know what I'd use. You need to find a car that is common enough, yet that has cool seats. Maybe Prelude or Integra seats would work. It should be pretty easy to find one of those, and the seats are pretty comfy and cool looking from what I recall. I assume you aren't looking for leather?

"Styling God", I'd switch those tires on the Mitsu pickup.

Those BFG Euro TA's are okay in the dry, but when it's wet, they aren't too good.

Anyways, maybe red would be a nice color for it?

As for seats. Ya teg seats would be nice, and I like the 4th gen Civic seats [92-95]
because they offer great side bolster support and a high enough one armed headrest that helped prevent whiplash for me when I was rear ended.

My dream.......is a heated 100 car garage, a nice little house and a racetrack for my driveway......oh yes, a gorgeous & rich wife would be nice too!

I was deffinetly thinking about getting the integra seats,,,,I'm not sure if I want the leather or not I probably won't,,,,I'll just stick with cloth........

But the Euro TA's I got with the rim I almost stoled them of the guy I bought them off of,,,I paid $200 fir 5 rims & tires,,,,and they are mint condition and the tires as well......
