Put the "little" tires on, attached the snow plow, filled the gas tank (OUCH!) and brought it home to get ready for winter. :(

Put the passenger mirror from the F250 scrappy on after a quick coat of gloss black paint (it was all I had on hand) cleaned and rain-x’d the glass in preparation for the upcoming rain.

Left the damn window down, when I moved it for a Toyota we were welding work on, right before we had a 30 minute downpour :mad: got to drive home from the shop on a soggy seat.

I'll second that recomendation by @cjwchoppers
I had issues with my long headers sealing against the FE360 in my '73. Went through stacked crush gaskets lke tissues and tried the remflex set. No more leaks and it's been a few seasons now. Nice to have the proper seal after fighting so long.

Thanks @cjwchoppers. Thanks @BikerPepe .

Fortunately the headers are still sealed to the block. Leak was coming from the joint between the headers and y-pipe.

Several jerry-rigged attempts at putting extensions together and lots of words stronger than @BroncoMom's "hinkey horse poop" to tighten the inside collector bolt, I threw in the towel... went all big spender and outsourced it to a joint up the street for a Jackson. :shame

Blew my lunch money for the week, but I'm banking on leftovers Thursday. LOL

Sounds like us trying to tighten the same joint on a Nissan hardbody trick... your ratchet is behind the transfer case with enough extensions to make a porn star blush. You loose so much force with all that steel between your ratchet and socket.

A buddy of mine (well more like a Marine buddy of hubby's, but i talk to him more) brought me up a set of topper trim from an 86 that @SRWillis found near me on fb marketplace. All it cost me was a nug 😀 (cost the Marine $10 and gas $ back n forth to Pittsburgh). I love Marines ❤ such gentleman ❤🇺🇸💙
Can't wait to get a little temp paintbooth set up in the basement to paint them and get my door panels done 👍

Winter is coming, so I wanted to get my black Bronco out of the rental house's garage where it has been parked since May 6th. You know where this is going, the battery was a dead as a woodpecker's dream. When the battery is completely dead, when you open the door, you can hear a faint clicking coming from beneath the dash (I think it comes from the anti-theft module). So, I took one of my other vehicles and will go hunting for my battery charger tomorrow. I love that old Bronco, but come spring, I'll have to find a new home for it. ('96 Bronco with 122K miles)

I too enjoy bartering for nugs.
Those are pretty hard to come by in good shape. I think a majority of them get forgotten on shop shelves and left behind when Bronco's change hands... a lot.

I drove mine over to visit a bro's widow this afternoon. The strength of some lil' old gals blows my mind on occasion.

I was amazed at what good shape they're in... None of the screw holes are split, both upright gaskets are there, and the foam is still on the frame rail pieces (altho it's a dried out mess and will be replaced). I was super thrilled when srwillis messaged me about them and even the right color! Dude had em posted for 20$, but then only charged my buddy 10$ (maybe i won the discount sharing my rig with him and letting him know how important his parts were to finish my build 😂)...
Once again, super stoked 👍 and always love a good barter... Can't beat it.
just in case anyone's looking this seller was parting out an 86 if y'all are looking for anything. Near Pittsburgh PA.
