The Filly build

I went and bought myself the Filly from FordFilly as some of you might know. I couldn't pass up as nice a Bronco as this one is. With as much that has already been done to it. She's clean, straight and damn near everything I would have done to it myself. You're not going to see any big changes to this one. Just some upgrades I feel it needs or minor changes to meet my tastes.

Motor details






Working already

The first couple of times I drove it I thought it need to be opened up a little in the exhaust area. I got to looking at what Judi had done to it and she spoke of adding headers. So I did that and added another muffler to make it true duals.

Flowtech ceramic coated

flowmaster 40 series to go with the one that was already there.

mani's out











Open headers

I'll get one of what it sounds like finished.

I'm jealous enough too kick you for buying it.


As I said though... glad to see it was able to stay "in the family" and go to someone who would appreciate and love it.

I did a few other things also. If I get them completed I'll post them up.

Rick, I missed seeing this or knowing you bought Filly's Bronco! Congrats! Very nice Bronco. Glad it went to a good home - I was wondering who was lucky enough to get it!

Thanks Gary, It is a very nice Bronco. Lots of upgrades I would have done myself (had someone else do). Yes, very lucky to get it for sure.


I worked on Filly again yesterday after my daughters softball game. Painted up the mc/booster, vaccum canister & factory supplied jack. Also painted the neck of the cleaner assembly, washed up the rest of the bay that won't get paint. I'm entering it in the show n' shine at the round up. I want to take home a trophy.

Before


I scuffed it up with a wire brush before I sprayed it with this.


Painted up

I've got a chrome cap & clamp on the way for the mc resevoir and need to figure out where Judi got that overflow tank for the radiator. It was brittle and cracked when I put my hand on the corner .

I picked these tires and wheels up today for $600. Going to swap the turbines on Yeller with the wagon wheels and put the Mickey's and turbines on this. Then turn around and sell the DC's and aluminum wheels.



My personalized plates came in the mail today.


Checked the tightness of the header bolts today. Found a loose one and the cause of the exhaust leak at the manifold.


Stay tuned, more progress coming.

Not a bad buy, looks like there is plenty of tread left on them.

Thanks Mark. Hope all is well in WA?



I've been making a few mods and minor changes to the Bronco. It being as nice as it is. There really isn't much to do. I'm planning on entering it in the show n shine at the Round Up so I've focused on making it look as good as possible. Like the valve covers. They needed a coat of paint.


Look brand new don't they?

I replaced the old crusty fastener's with a little bling.

I just need to find that elusive chrome MC cover. Anyone know where I can find one that acctually fits?

Out with the booster blocks. Need to install the carpet.


Only thing glued down was the wheel well carpets.

yep that's the original insullation you see.


It's in there, going to let the heat of today (96*) lay it down a little more flat before I put seats back in. Looks good and of high quality. Pissed at myself though. I got a little impatient and cut too far forward for the tcase shifter .

Moved on to cleaning up and repainting the turbines. Paint was chipped a little from the new rubber going on.

painted


I sprayed it with two coates of clear at the end this time. If it doesn't hold up, I'm going to get them blasted and powder coated.

Old

New

That's it for now, stay tuned

You're having way to much fun there. Looking nice. Can't wait to hear how it does in the show.

That sucks cutting the carpet wrong. I'm sure you'll come up with some way to mask it.

Carry on.
