Yesterday saw an EXTREMELY successful day. Got the new chassis shortened and completely welded back up. Today will see mounting the Bronco shell to the shortened F150 chassis and working out the brakes and steering. There are going to be a few interference issues to work out, but nothing too difficult to overcome.
Pretty obvious now that the original goal of driving the Bronco around the block by the end of the weekend was a bit overreaching. But, no matter, I already consider the weekend a huge success.
Had a few webcam failures what with the welders and plasma cutter f'in with the power to the webcam server computer, but oh well. I should still be able to get some good chucks of timelapse footage out of it. I can't wait to see the footage...
Side note, the old 1979 Bronco chassis is in EXCELLENT condition. I'd prefer to see it go in one fell swoop, but will part out if no one wants the whole thing.
Yeah I got really confused. The wrecked pictures of the truck look almost identical if you haven't seen Quint's in a while. If only I could fine an 06 that looked like that for dirt cheap... How much did the wrecked truck cost you anyway?
