Latest purchase. It's like new!

I do plan to change a few things. I really like the 87-88 Pathfinder/89 4x4 truck grills and bumpers. All black and looks a lot more rugged. I plan to change all that but will of course keep all the stock chrome so it can go back to stock in case I ever want to sell it.

Last photo is from the ad. I had too much crap inside to take good photos but it's just like new.

This is what the front will look like. Minus the vents in the hood. Found this on google but makes me miss my 2 previous red 87 Pathfinder SE's I owned back in the day. I still keep my hopes up that one day I can find another one that's been stored in a collection.

Started the 87 Pathfinder front end conversion. Headlights, grill and corner lamps. Waiting on bumper bolts and door handles to add the black bumper and mirrors.

Just maintenance.

Conversion is done. Just needs to be cleaned. Front grill, headlights, corner lamps, bumper, front spoiler, black mirrors and door handles. I need to go to the salvage yard to get some black windshield trim.

Have decided to make this truck a bit better. Added Bilstein HD shocks which are great, bought SCS F5 Toyota spec wheels and and will need to get longer studs. I made an offer on a 2002 Nissan supercharged Frontier with manual to pull the engine, harness and ecu out of which should be delivered this evening, got a Go Rhino roll bar which should ship soon and some Hella black 500 series lights. Lastly, bought the last OE 87 Pathfinder grill in the country from Nissan.
