Thanks Brando.

I did drve it around the yard. Brakes worked well on the short drive. Need to get my vac lines straight to cure the idle issue. Once the interior is back in I'll take the milk crate out and install the seat. Still lots to do before then.

Thanks, Just don't know when it will end.

Update

Messed with the gate that previously worked but has since stopped. Bypassed the switch that seems to have quit and rolled it down for easey access to cargo area. I'm going to vaccum it again, brush it with a wire brush then spray it with some ospho. The MEB Round Up is next week so look for some progress in July.

Finally got around to finish reading your build thread. Man, you've been through a lot with this thing! I'm just starting to rebuild mine, hope I don't have that kind of rust when I remove the vinyl floor. Your determination has inspired me. If you can bring this girl back to life, I should be able to do the same.

Keep up the good work. Post lots of pics!

Good deal. I'm gonna try and get those other pieces cut if time and weather work out. Don't worry about those blocks now my 10.25 under my pig.

Looking good. Wish I was able to swap the '77 front end from my F250 when I got my bronco.

Nice day out today so I cut some sheet metal.




Still some triming to do on this side then get the rot out. Need to drill out the spot welds. Then I can secure this and move over to the other side.


Started brushing up all the rust scale.

, I haven't done anything to this since November.

Incase you haven't been keeping up with this months FOTM. I did a lil work today.







Tomorrow I'll try and get the other usable parts swapped over from the old door.

"We" got the driver door hung today.


Stepped up to the plate when I told him I was going to work on the Bronco.
