Retired-So now its back to the 79 Build

I recently retired after 31 years of government work. I got my brain back and now its time to continue what I started more than 4 years ago. My 1979 Bronco Custom. I am re-introducing myself as it has been a while since I have been here. I know everyone here that shares their insight will be a blessing to me in the future. Hope to continue my rebuild here soon.

Glad to be back and looking forward to using the resources you provided as well as the knowledge of everyone here.

Miesk5-I had your old bronco website bookmarked and read through some of the information. Extremely helpful.

SRWillis-137 Mondays will be gone quicker than you think.

See you all on my build thread when I post it.

Congrats on the retirement! I could go any time but still like going to work so I'm gonna wait another 18 months. Good luck with the build. My favorite truck of all time was my '78 F-150 until it made it's way south of the border without my permission.
