    New Ram 50 Owner... HELP!

    Hello I'm a new user here as well as a new owner of a 1988 Dodge Ram 50.

    The truck is in great running shape. Only needs cosmetic love, I can find most parts to replace except for one!!!

    I cannot find where to pick up an after market replacement Windshield washer reservoir anywhere! Please help!

    I've got one if you care to PM me.

    What's the problem with the one you have, or is it missing completely?

    Also, we're pretty demanding of pictures, here

    We wanna see your truck

    Don't worry pics are coming soon. The reservoir is falling appart. it barely holds fluid in it towards the bottom where it's not crumbling.

    I bought the truck off the second owner, he was using it as a work truck at a construction site.
    So the engine and trans are in tip top working order. however the front end needs love badly and there are various dents and dings across the body.

    I can knock out most of the dents and replace fenders, bumpers and valance that are beyond my hammer magic.
    I'm gonna keep it simple primer grey, with lower rocker (below the fake belt/molding line gloss black. Then stick a giant Mitsu.Ram logo hybrid vinyl on the hood. and just throw 3 coats of clear coat over the whole truck.

    To make it extra obnoxtios gonna remove the cat and stick on a single in dual out flowmaster piped out the rear. LOL

    I have an extra big vinyl ram logo with the diamond star between the horns. I used it on my racecar (a Dodge Colt).

    Its been sitting a while but is still sticky I'm sure. Ill try to get a pic of it postwd latwr if you are interested. This site can take the profits... l have no use for it.

    For some reason, home internet is down and I cant load pics with my phone. The decal is about 20"x24"

    Its a good sized center piece to the hood. As soon as I can, I'll load up a pic of it.

    What color is the decal when applied?

    That looks like it might be Pink or red...

    I was really hoping the Ram would black or white with the Diamonds being Red.

    You could certainly use it for a template, Frank, and use those colors yourself.

    Hmmm I could probaly apply it and just paint the ram portion Gloss black to contrast the grey hood leaving the Mitsu Diamonds red.

    How much would you want for it?

    You can do some clever paint work using the decal as a template to mask off.

    If you wanted a black ram - paint the hood black, lay the ram down, paint the hood whatever top color you want, peel the ram off, lay down the diamond star.

    I think I paid $50 something for it. $20 should get it shipped and leave enough for an over minimum site donation.

    I PM'd you a confirmation 3 days ago when you sent payment

    But I just sent the tracking link a moment ago. PayPal should have also sent an email with tracking updates from us (MP Business Group).

    Let me know if I can do anything else for you.
