Ummmmmmm hmmmmm no experiance in body work so you are going to weld, glue, duct tape, and bondo?????? I would say get the panels you seek have someone replace them (someone on here will lend you a hand in the welding area) and prep yourself.

thanks for the info i have some welding experiance in steel tubbing just minior though i have a mig and time to pratice unless someone else is near quakertown Pa who could give me a hand
I also tried to take it to body shops and nobody will give me a estimate they all keep telling me they only will charge me $75-$150 per hour they wanted me to give $2000 to start (this is with me purchasing the pannels) and it doesnt seam as though anyone really wanted to do it including 2 resto shops in my area i just keep getting fustrated cause im trying to set a budget for the project and its a bronco not brain surgery so i figure maybe try it

I disagree. Gotta get the experience somehow.
It really isn't brain surgery. Takes a good eye, some knowledge, and patience.
From what I've heard, the body panels are a huge pain in the ass to replace in some spots. I don't remember who, but somebody said they'd rather do and engine swap twice than replace their fenders again.

I have ordered some National Parts Depot body parts before (for a mustang not bronco) they seemed decent quality. Most of the panels are made by the same company over in taiwan or something anyways.

As for just starting off with body work, It is easy to learn how to do and incredibly hard to get good at. Just be sure to take your time, always ALWAYS measure a couple times before you cut, take your time because you will get angry and frustrated, be sure to use the proper tools, don't ever get angry enough to get the attitude "i will just hit it till it fits."

Be sure to take your time welding, go slow, space out your welds, and allow plenty of time for the metal to cool (so you dont warp your new panels). Definitely practice a lot on scrap panels that you might have or metal of a similar thickness. Practicing a lot before hand will make it easier.

Just for reference I started doing body work with zero experience. So far all the panels i have replaced have turned out pretty good. It just takes a lot of time to do properly.

yo,
Here is Body parts info; look for CAPA Certified;
The Certified Automotive Parts Association (CAPA) is a non-profit organization established in 1987 to develop and oversee a test program guaranteeing the suitability and quality of automotive parts. CAPA encourages competition in the marketplace in the hope that their program will ultimately reduce expense to the consumer and the industry while increasing and assuring part quality.

CAPA Data Base Search http://www.capacertified.org/partsearch.asp

Here is my Search today; I went thru the Ford, Bronco drill without inserting a Year;
do it yourself to see a btter view of the table Results
Then, when buying a panel, ask your parts source if they use the manufacturer and pn listed.
There were CAPA certified 1/4 panel sources up to abour 7 yrs ago in USA, Great Lakes area, but the company folded.
