What’s up! I’m Trevor and I just bought my first Bronco. 1984! She runs, but she will definitely be running better when I’m done with her. Planning a lot of restoration. I was referred to this forum because I will likely have tons of questions with what I’m planning to do and was told that this was the best place to be. I’ve got a great team of friends willing to help, can’t wait to show y’all what we get up to.

Luckily for the vehicle, we’re in the Deep South!

I definitely will! There are lots of rust spots I’ll be repairing after getting everything mechanically sound, but luckily I don’t think anything is too bad

Check out a place called www.tabcoparts.com all the replacement panels you might need with super good prices using American steel to factory specs. Won't be disappointed 👍

I will have have to check them out myself. I hadn’t heard of them yet.
Not many people have until they come here looking for panels 😏
But they are better quality than lmc truck at a much better price and fitment...

main page of the website has a bullnose f150 on it... off to a great start! lol

wow those are great prices!
RIGHT! Told ya so 😏 you can always trust a woman when she's talking about bargains (meaning inexpensive not cheap (cheap denotes poor quality) and money 😂 finding both is in our blood...

I keep thinking of how you said "better fitment" than lmc truck. I'm pretty sure eventually I'm going to have to replace my fender panels and doors. Is lmc truck not the best option for doing so?

In my opinion, especially from what I've seen from reading lots and lots of old posts on here... No, lmc panels seem to be horribly disappointing (especially the tailgate skins) from those here who have used them. The ones from Jeff's bronco graveyard also didn't fair well, but not as bad as LMCs...

Any post I've seen (and there's only a few) that have used the tabco panels only had good things to say about ease of transition, installation and overall fitment compatibility plus price can't be beat that I can find, plus they have a lot of the obscure pieces like corners...
So yeah... If I ever need panels im going to tabco.
