Also got the new well new to Bronco hood latch installed. I know you will find this hard to believe but old one was rusted through. Stll need to align hood as you can see. Also included my half a bronco I got from Norfolkf05 (Josh). How about that front clip? PO thought it would be cool to have a folding forward clip. Nice straight line is best thing he did and maybe the power latch on the hood release.

Looking forward to following this one, Rick! Love the first gen FSB. You going to post up any more pics of the motor, interior, underbody, etc?

Is the other one just a parts truck, or a project? I actually think the flip front would be cool if done correctly. It would make motor access way easier, that's for sure...

Your rattle can paint job looks good! Course like you said, upclose it's not that great but 10 feet back it's nice! I know the feeling on that.

I don't think the front clip is savagable on that part truck! It looks like's holding together by habit! LOL

I thought about doing a front clip flip on my bronco but that's down the road. Plus I think I might do it a little better then that one!

Thanks! Yeah I kinda refer to the flip front on that one as how not to do it.

I took some pics of the inside battered steed. Gotta remember is was on the beach for 8 years. I vaccumed it once already yet there is still sand everywhere. It has some serious holes in the floor pans front and rear. But amazingly the windshield don't leak go figure. Still gotta get the tires and wheels on it and brakes bleed and I am gonna tear into the interior and start working my way out.

Some more pics, as you can see well maybe not. There are a lot of bottle caps in this thing. I think I could use all it has in it to patch the holes. PO was nice enuff to leave this Bud Light for me. It has a experation date on it of June of 08. What you guys think, skunked or what?
