i posted a few weeks ago about what was gonna happen to my bronco in the next couple of months

well this week we have gotten started on it....im calling this part of the build project pretty boy, just b/c its just dealing with body work/paint/cosmetics


step 1, i removed the front valance
step 2, my dents have been popped out
step 3, my old valance was used to make a new radiator mat (holds up well)
step 4, my tire rack was taken off

total so far, $100

thats about as far as we have gotten so far, but tommorow this is what should happen

1, scrub the entire underbody with a wirebrush
2, paint a couple of engine parts w/ krylon
3, a nice wash and clean up

and next week...

1, take all of my soft top bolts out
2, prep it for the body shop

at the body shop....

1, plug all the holes made from removing dents
2, straighten bumper
3, fill holes from spare tire carrier
4, fill holes from previous soft top
5, fix dent in bumper (dent guy could not get it out)
6, repaint where he worked to match the rest of the paint
7, wet sand the entire body
8, nice coat of wax (w/ a buffer)


to finish up project "Pretty Boy" i still have to replace my front bucket seats, and find a wood trim piece, and get my fsb sticker on my windshield

dont get me wrong, the next stage involves 6'' of lift, 35'' tires, new high flow cat, nitro shocks, STC soft top, and some lights

here's some pics

Dont let water get around those holes too much before it gets painted.. Nothing like a little visit from some cancer. & I dont see very much rust unless its hiding.. Best way would be taking everything apart to sand blast and paint.
