Man you are doing a great job.

My bko was trashed worse than yours when I started. Seeing this makes me want reconsider not pulling the tub off and doing it like you.

Now I have a 2 post lift the next project WILL be done like this.

Again... AWESOME WORK!

Wow, the amount of work you are putting into that thing is impressive. When you get that thing back together this is full size of the month material.

The old Coil Springs - not beautiful but nothing broken



Back from a specialized company - they made them like new, shot-blast, special primed to prevent rust and finished with black powdercoat for about 80 bucks ;-)

Holy cow. Where did you get that thing, The bottom of the ocean? You should get some kind of Bronco mother Theresa award for saving this one. Amazing work. Can't wait to see this one.

I do lot of rust repair . . your work looks great. But to me, the most impressive thing is that you are doing all of this from Germany? I know that makes it terrifically difficult.

Thank you! Yes, it's not always easy doing this from Germany. That's why I had to made a lot of parts on my own for fixing the bad spots on the Bronco. In the states I could by most of the things. But I can see the light at the end of the tunnel
