Detailed the left side over the past couple days. Started with a clean surface, followed by meticulously clay barring the paint, then a compound polish with my porter cable and orange cutting pad, finishing polish on a white polishing pad, then two coats Meguiars NXT applied 24 hours apart. It isn't perfect but has come a long way.






Now for the passenger side waaaaaahhh

Had to register the rig..

And, then, while being registered, still isn't smogged..


Hopefully, one more part needed to fix this rig, pass smog,(fingers crossed) and then my nightmare will be over.

Picked up a set of half tread 38" Toyos and MT Classic Locks off CL. They'll be a mock up tire thats road friendly for the upcoming SAS.

As for work on the Bronco.....pfffttt.....its been at the Tuner's since 3/9. Something about my fuel pump shitting the bed, toasting the electric fan fuse/relay, and my expensive digital gauges not reading correctly is holding up the process.

Put on some nerf bars.


And fixed a broken seat bracket



I just started to work on the Bronco, after owning it for 7 years.
First thing that I have done with it-more to come.
I haven't searched yet, but does anyone know off hand, if the side molding is bolt on attached with adhesive?

Thanks,

Took it out wheelin' some to 7 mile. Got to meet up with Stangmata/Ian and RicoBronco/Rick and a few other military boys that came out with Ian. Had a good time... despite my fuel pump giving out when wet.
Got the floor pan patch kit in the mail today... guess what I'm doing this week.

I took off the side molding and the chrome fender trim.
I used a Heat Gun, Pliers, a scrap piece of plastic laminate and some Acetone.
Took about 2 hours, including smoke breaks.




I plan on/ want to remove all the chrome, so I need to find some Black windshield trim and Black trim for the back side windows-Anyone point me in the right direction-lol (...and the headlight trim...)


-dimwit-

Anyone know what brand of rims I have, I would like to find a 5th one for the spare.
