@MS88Bronc Those are Hemingway 6 toed cats, google it.
He had a few, Dude prolly gave mom/dad cat Cuban rum instead of water and the 6 toed cats came about.....that's my theory.

The chickens were released by Bahamian settlers. They mostly are in that area of town. If they venture to into the working boat dock yards near by....they're dinner!

What's funny is that the cats and chickens chill out together...
It's Key West afterall...anything goes!

Except all them damn feral flea bitten cats and obnoxiously loud roosters!

Yeah I know about the Hemingway cats - my wife has been bugging me for one for years, especially when we were there lol. We saw them all around Hemingway’s house.

Those damn roosters would be hanging all around the gas stations and convenience stores bugging people for a handout (of food).

Well I had to use the bronco to pull some bushes, ended up having to jump it. Let it trickle charge overnight and drove it to work.

On the way I couldn't get the cruise control to work, again. I had power at the steering wheel so it had to be something else. Decided to try and jump the pressure switch at the master cylinder. Well, that sumbitch was leaking into the connector. Come to find out I still have the red switch and am due the recall.

Pulled the fuse and drove home. Gonna get Ford to put in a new one and bleed my brakes (they need it).

Haven’t done much with it in about a month. Cranked her up and drove to the gas station and gym and remembered I need to fix my fuel gauge and oil gauge. Oil pressure gauge reads low all the time and the fuel gauge is below e. Also experienced some weird “choking” when i was cruising and would try and give it gas. After a second or two it would get moving just fine. Guess I’ll replace the fuel filter since I’ve had one for a while. Also ordered a nice head unit for it just now!!

@Joecruiser that is the heat/sound shield from the factory i believe. That stuff came up real easy. There is a bit of rust...mostly surface rust that i am taking off with a 80 grit flapper wheel they a couple of coats of auto primer then monstaliner. I saw @BroncMom results so i figured i would give it a try!

But cleaned up and primed nicely. Make sure you cover/tape off your interior glass/surfaces if your using rattle can primer or you'll have an aerosol mess to clean up off everything u didn't want primer'd. I have the whole process in my build thread. Broncmoms82resto

Alpine makes good units. I put one in my old 88 and was happy with it. Did you get the Alpine power pack amp to go with it?
My old one:



For me today, I drove it again to test for vibration - nothing still. (y)

That looks identical to this one. I haven’t bought the amp yet but I’m going to. Planning on using it to push my door and rear deck Polk speakers. Also going with a kicker sub in the back. Plan is to get all the materials, strip the interior, install body mounts and insulation, install system and put it all back together!!

I have Polk Audio speakers in my current rig. They’re good speakers.
