Finally found me a Bronco. Lucked up and found a 1994 XLT local 2 owner, one family Bronco. A friend told me about it and said he thought they might sell it. When we got there it was sitting getting covered in leaves and mold. Was told it wouldn't start and they thought the steering column/ ignition was the issue. So I looked it over, zero rust, cloth seats in great condition, body and top in great condition, was told it had a repaint in black [originally black]. Paint was flat black covered in mold. Lots more to the story just don't want to bore everyone on my first post.
Just excited to be a part of this group.

Welcome to FSB! As a fairly new bronco owner, and new member of this site, I have found this site to be INVALUABLE and FULL of knowledge and people willing to lend a hand or point you in the right direction. That picture was night and day after you cleaned it up! Looks awesome!

Yo Hitmn4hire72,
Welcome! RUST FREE⚠🎈🎈🎈 Great!

ASAP, find out if speed control, if equipped, recall work completed by a dealership. Call local dealer or register and view status @ https://owner.ford.com; or @ Recalls Look-up by VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) ... have VIN ready.
"Summary: ON CERTAIN PICKUP TRUCKS, PASSENGER VEHICLES, SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES, AND MOTOR HOMES CHASSIS, THE SPEED CONTROL DEACTIVATION SWITCH MAY, UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS, LEAK INTERNALLY AND THEN OVERHEAT, SMOKE, OR BURN. THIS COULD RESULT IN AN UNDERHOOD FIRE."
To confirm current status, use this guide by jowens1126 @ 93 & 94-96 Cruise Control Recalls Repair
note that the 93 recall is different than 94-96

Welcome. I’m fairly new as well and man I have saved a lot of time and money by asking questions, even if I thought they were dumb, and going with answers. Congrats on the find!!

I have had great success with meguiars show car glaze for older faded paint restoration. I always recommend it do that situation just FYI.

Vin says it hasn't been done. If the steering column has been altered [previous owner couldn't fix the ignition so they pulled out the push button, column still intact." Will the dealership still change the part? Thanks for all the info. You guys and ladies are great.

Yo,
Stop at local dealership and see how it goes. The recall has nothing to do with the column.
However, they may claim safety issues due to thr modification(s).
If they won't honor the recall, the parts are cheap enough to replace on your dime or have a shop do it following info provided by Ford and in jowens1126 Link.

Well since I owned my own mobile detail service back in my packing trash days (DAMN LONG DAYS) I’ll pitch what I used. It’s a product called Race Glaze. No affiliation what so ever, still use it personally. There fast action compound cuts good followed by there leveling compound, on new paint. For just polishing fade hit it with leveling compound and a foam buffing pad...... Here’s the best part..... it’s water soluble so washes out of all the nooks and crannies! There leather and trim cleaner works great and has a pleasant smell not overwhelming.

This was after a quick buff. I was blown away.

Did you buff it or have it done? What product? Foam or wool pad? Buffer type, small home job or large angle professional buffer. Detailing minds like to know! ;) Beautiful truck btw!

That’s awesome man. I use a guy local to me most of the time for products. It’s a company called shine supply. His “burn out” formula is awesome for a one step on a orange foam pad. Looks good man. Can’t wait to see the interior!
