working on the rocker panel and the drop down floor corner piece deely. but its gettin there

its amazing how time consuming this kind of work is when you have to fab small peices to fit, wish i had an english wheel, planishing hammer, and some poast dollys. it would make my life soo much easier.

lol, just trying to get it done and work around the very thin stuff if i can weld to it it can stay where it is and get covered with chassis saver that stuff seems to be pretty decent. im sick of driving a ranger that i'm borrowing from someone. because im spending all my loot on my bko. when its done it will look good in there even though no one else will see it lol

Great job you're doing. Good to see another Bronco saved for a while longer. I hate to see so many being parted out or scrapped. You can order Rust Bullet from Summitt Racing, cheapest place I found to get it. Keep up the good work.

i'm using chassis saver to see how it works, and no i dont have pics of the install but it was pretty simple just drill all the spot welds that hold the floor down mine was not connected at either end because of rot so i'm not exactly sure how that's suppose to attach but i used my imagination and made the best of it. seems to be pretty sturdy, did you find one to put in yours?

I came realy close to going with chassis saver myself. I think all of the good words said about rust bullet on here is why I went with it, that and them being a sponsor of the site at the time.

I've got to say, bud... that thing is coming out good! Are you happy with the appearance of the single-stage paint? What did you use? Rustoleum? I'm considering the same thing for mine this summer to freshen everything up.

It looks really good.

Just make sure you prep the floor really good and 1 gallon is only going to do 2 coats from the floor behind the seats to tailgate and up the side and its going to smell for like 2 weeks.
