Talking The White Falcon

I have had my Jeep since this past summer. I bought it for 500 bucks and a trailer from my Dads friend. He wanted a truck with a trailer instead of the hatch. I said "what the heck" so i jumped on the deal and here it is!i Would love your suggestions on what to do next. Just know i am 16 years old and work at the local sonic drive in so this project is slow and steady.
