Detailed the left side over the past couple days. Started with a clean surface, followed by meticulously clay barring the paint, then a compound polish with my porter cable and orange cutting pad, finishing polish on a white polishing pad, then two coats Meguiars NXT applied 24 hours apart. It isn't perfect but has come a long way.






Now for the passenger side waaaaaahhh

Drove it to the ER. I was puking my guts up last night. :barf :itsatrap They gave me some meds to help me drink and avoid dehydration, but I'm gonna be bed ridden till at least Saturday. Which means no work on the BKO! :crazy

Had to register the rig.. :banghead

And, then, while being registered, still isn't smogged..:banghead


Hopefully, one more part needed to fix this rig, pass smog,(fingers crossed) and then my nightmare will be over.:rockon


Hope you're feeling better AFBronco

Installed steering box, high pressure hose, epoxied washer tank lid on, cleaned up more wiring, and contemplating a new stereo system.

Picked up a set of half tread 38" Toyos and MT Classic Locks off CL. They'll be a mock up tire thats road friendly for the upcoming SAS.

As for work on the Bronco.....pfffttt.....its been at the Tuner's since 3/9. Something about my fuel pump shitting the bed, toasting the electric fan fuse/relay, and my expensive digital gauges not reading correctly is holding up the process.:banghead

Put on some nerf bars.


And fixed a broken seat bracket



I just started to work on the Bronco, after owning it for 7 years.
First thing that I have done with it-more to come.
I haven't searched yet, but does anyone know off hand, if the side molding is bolt on attached with adhesive?

Thanks,

Took it out wheelin' some to 7 mile. Got to meet up with Stangmata/Ian and RicoBronco/Rick and a few other military boys that came out with Ian. Had a good time... despite my fuel pump giving out when wet.
Got the floor pan patch kit in the mail today... guess what I'm doing this week. ;)

I took off the side molding and the chrome fender trim.
I used a Heat Gun, Pliers, a scrap piece of plastic laminate and some Acetone.
Took about 2 hours, including smoke breaks.




I plan on/ want to remove all the chrome, so I need to find some Black windshield trim and Black trim for the back side windows-Anyone point me in the right direction-lol (...and the headlight trim...)


-dimwit-

Anyone know what brand of rims I have, I would like to find a 5th one for the spare.
