hey dim... we don't answer a whole lot of questions in this thread. more of a general rambling off of the days events/work/etc.

If you want help with specific questions about the rig, start a thread here: Noobie Bronco Tech Questions. Flame free zone!

Gave it a good wash after wheelin it with Bikerpepe and Stangmata..Great time guys. I had noticed some new creaking and popping overhead, and after a post wash inspection, my suspicions were confirmed: B pillar cracks got worse. Kinda strange, didn't do anything more harsh than I have before, but the cracks/splits are definitely worse, and the popping, when stressed is certainly more frequent. So, I have that to look forward to, and put on my list of things-to-do-when-I-get-a-welder. Looks like I'll be stalking jermil01's thread on b-pillar repair. ;)

Also..took a stroll through a pull and save yard today. $23 later I walked out with: a tach..some nice tow hooks off an expedition,some charcoal grab handle off the same expedition..about 3 sets of weather stripping out of aerostar vans for my rear slider rebuild, a nice plastic throttle cable cover..and a very clean air filter box with the lower intake, containing a k&n drop in :thumbup..thats a pretty good haul...oh yeah, and an alternator for my buddies E150 work van.
Installed the tach tonight..works great! First time my Bronco has every been below 2100 rpms..
Pretty good Bronco weekend.

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...)

Anyone know what brand of rims I have, I would like to find a 5th one for the spare.
Check out Jeff's Bronco Graveyard. They carry the black window stripping.

New diamond style headlights..
its such an amazing improvement isn't it? you doing HIDs or stock bulbs?



I sold my spare 302 to a guy for an exchange for some machine work on the 351 im going to be doin. that way if it blows I cant be blamed for it as easily.

funny thing is hes putting it in a 94 bronco. sad part is tho he works as a hotrod/machine shop, im questioning his ability to swap the engine correctly. he doesn't seem to understand EFI and was gonna try swapping to carb with an E4OD and no controller. he threw out all the harnesses and some important parts hes going to need

Those headlights work really well with Silverstar Ultras...

Before (old headlights/bulbs):



After (diamond h/l w/ Sivlerstar Ultra):



Don't waste your time/money on HID unless you are going with projectors designed for HID. Using HID bulbs in reflector lenses is very inefficient, and results in significant scatter, which doesn't help you, and irritates everyone else on the road.
