The1096Raider build

Starting this thread for my son as he's having trouble signing in.

Started off by knocking some ugly off this thing. Removing the rusted out smittybuilt bumpers and that awful, leaky, siliconed sunroof. After reading through 79broncospringtx's build, we decided to follow his lead and replace the whole roof. So that's where we are. Going to be picking up a 94 parts bronco next week. Bonus is it has an almost complete gray interior. Just missing the seats and door panels.

Well since we're are waiting on the parts bronco, we decided to tackle the drivers side wheel arch. Didn't get a before pic of the driver's side. It wasn't as bad as the passenger side. Here's a couple pics. All the rust was treated and sealed with por15. Still need to do the passenger side, that will be tomorrows job.

Got the parts bronco home yesterday. Stripped the interior and cut the roof off today. Was able to get the new roof set in place. Just need to do a little fine tuning and weld it on.

Finally got it figured out. Now I can update my own thread. @reptillikus I wish we could have just patched the hole from the sunroof but the roof was so warped, it was better to just replace the whole thing.

I get it, i would have been afraid to try to patch it, and leave the roof permanently warped. You guys are doing a great job

Well my dad got the final trimming done on the new roof and tacked it in. Now we need to finish welding and start body work.

Nice work @The1096Raider & @snowman429 , nice to see a father and son project. I'm guessing that you are a body man or have some experience in the auto-body field as your work looks really nice.
Those spot weld cutters make for a nice neat job removing panels. Did you weld the roof on or use panel adhesive?

When I was fourteen years old, I was amazed at how unintelligent my father was. By the time I turned twenty-one, I was astounded at how much he had learned in the last seven years

Not a body man just watched a lot of video's. We cut the a pillars roughly 6" from the top of the windshield. I cut the rear right above the seat belt mounts, then welded it in.

Anything is possible. It's been fun having him in the garage.


Now we are trying to figure out what color to paint both his and mine. We have it narrowed down to Leadfoot or Avalanche gray with black trim and bumpers.

More pics please. We don't get to see enough serious body work around here.

btw... I would seriously recommend pulling that lower chrome stripe strip off the bottom before you start working on paint, if you weren't already planning too. I've got one a PO put on my old '73 F250 and they really are a huge moisture catch for rust to breed under.

He will get more up. He was working on drivers ed this weekend so he didn't get much garage time. Hopefully this weekend we start with some filler. Those chrome strips are definitely going away.

Well didn't get any pics of the filler but she's ready for the first round of blocking. Also my dad scored this 80 gal compressor for 100 bucks. Barely used.

Thanks, it's definitely a learning curve. It won't be a show car but better then it was.
