That Guy with the Orange Truck V 2.0
 
Hello, Im nick, some of you may have seen me on Ford truck enthusiasts as nickk97tml. This F150 is the first ever vehicle I have ever owned, and back then to call it a piece was an understatement. I bought it off an old lady rotting away who was going to scrap it if she didnt find a buyer. My father and uncle have put a lot of effort into this and I have learned many things along the way. Fast forward four years, Im slowy working towards the second rebuild coming spring 2014.:)

I vow to NOT:
-buy new tires and headlights and call myself a customizer/mechanic
-have abscene amounts of money and simply get someone else to do the job
-buy something off the assembly line to avoid rusty bolts

My motto: Built Not Bought

I love the truck man!!!! Amazing work you've done! Great color choice too! I love everything about your truck but those hood scoops. They kind of kill the clean look you have.
