So at that point I never finished the axle swap to the point of actually driving my bronco. Sold off the beadlocks, tires, y pipe, winch, front brake parts and a few more things. Then it ended up sitting in the woods for 5 or 6 years as I lost interest.. There it sat..

A few years after moving 800+ miles away I decided I wanted the bronco back. Sold some stuff and had it towed to Florida.

It was full of mice, spiders and was very dirty.
Once it arrived in Florida in rough, non-running condition is when the real work began.

After cleaning the bronco I tried to get it running for the first time in years. I should have cleaned the fuel tank out because I ended up killing both fuel pumps after running it for a short time. I replaced both fuel pumps and got rid of the stock 33 gallon tank. Don't have any pictures of this part but I swapped in a 19 gallon from an f150 and gained 7 inches of ground clearance.

After the bronco was running good I addressed the brakes since I never got to that part with the sas.. On the sterling I swapped the worn out drum brakes for some fresh discs.

On the dana 60 I decided to go all out.. All aluminum hubs with crazy rotors and 4 piston wilwoods.

In this time I also replaced all the brake and transmission lines with stainless. Put in a new booster and master cylinder from an f350. Bought another used winch and all bassani exhaust. Did some wiring changes/upgrades and bought some new tires and beadlocks. 39.5 inch iroks on recentered h1 beadlocks.



Then, the first time it moved under its own power in about 6 years.


Filled it up and hit the beach.


After that I painted the whole bronco black and got it ready for some trails..

Yes there is second Bronco on that video, but this is only one from five maybe six broncos in our whole country :) :)
I always buy parts from USA. Mainly from rockauto, shipping is not problem but is expensive sometimes...
Im an Architect and have my own studio so I can stop my projects sometimes. My wife left the job two times for our travel.

@remco man that's pretty cool that you were able to find other Bronco's and for it to be just like 6 in a country thats sweet.

Many of us in the USA buy from Rock auto too they are half the price of parts stores in town.

If you are ever near Holzbach Germany let me know my brother in-law would love to check out your Bronco lol

Keep the Bronco Pictures coming

After getting the door jambs all painted up it was time to work on the doors. If I remember right it took me a week and a half or so to get the bodywork done and ready for paint.

There was a little more damage and body work to do than I thought














Here are some action, and poser shots from Moabís own Fins N Things from March 2016

Got the doors all primed up and ready for Seal and paint:













Ready for 1 last sanding with Guide Coat, for those that donít know about guide coat Itís just black spray paint that when you block it with a fine grit sandpaper it will show you any low spots in the surface. You keep sanding till itís all the same color. If you can get this done you will have no waves in the paint as the waves you can easily see when itís shiny .





And I have to end off with some more Fins N Things

I also swapped out my fuel tank for a 33 gallon plastic one and changed out my fuel pump when I cleaned up my skid plate.



The old tank looked pretty crappy on the outside but was actually very good on the inside. Either way, I figure I shouldn't have to touch it again.







Doesn't look like the same tank inside compared to the rust outside:








Sorry, best I can do for pics on the new tank.

I think I should be OK with the tailpipes. They said 3" clearance in the instructions.

The exhaust used to exit out the side, but I had to cut and re-weld them when I did my shackle flip.

After the bronco was running it was time to test it out. Met up with some fellow fsb guys to go to Ocala for the first time..








So I had a few issues..

Bad place to break..


Overall it was a solid shakedown run though.

Got all the body work on the doors finished all the way up to the guide coat next up was the tailgate and fenders. I have tons of pictures of everything before I started so if there was any question on where a part belonged I could use the pictures. There wasnít too much looking at pics because everything I took apart I had put in zip locks and labeled them.

The front fenders only had a few small dings to take out:
















I always did the same procedure with the guide coat as it helps tremendously with an inexperienced body man.







Then got the fenders, doors, tailgate jambed







Enough Body Work time for some more fun. Here are some more Fin N Things with there 1 of a kind background views. There is no other place like it.
