I've had the idea for a while to remove the upper back of my '88 BII, making
it look a bit like a pickup. I saw one the other day that had this done,
and it looked even better than I thought it would. I was wondering if
anyone had done this themselves or knew anyone who had and could give me
some tips or advice...
Thanks!

Some sites that have pics of chopped broncoII's.
Nice work on many of them.
Adam has pictures of his truck there.

Subject: R12 patent

Dupont's patent was about to expire in about 1992 or thereabouts,
meaning that competitors could start producing it; their strategy was to
support the CFC ban after patenting a freon substitute, therefore giving
them the 17 more years of non competition. This info is common
knowledge and available via any good search engine.

Having knowledge also to what Ken mentioned, that R12 has been around
since the '30s, I'll do some research re: Dupont patent info. in order
to clarify whether they did have any input to the R134 "upgrade" or not.
Don't want to pass on heresay information, even if it was given to me
first by a Dupont senior executive here in town...come to think of it,
he does drive a Chevy!

At the time all this transpired, there was *NO* freon substitute, and their
still really isn't a "direct" replacement for R-12.
There are a few that come close, but they all require some special mods etc.

I think this has been discussed, but I could not find it in the archive...

I got my 88 Ranger last March. The dealer did the brakes when I bought it.
I've put on about 20k miles since then. The last few days my brake light
has been flashing intermittently. I was told it means the brakes need to be
done.

Questions:

Is 14 months/20k miles a standard length of time for brakes to wear? All my
other cars & my wife's car have gone 2+ years between brake jobs.

How soon do I need to do them? Can it wait until the weekend?

Should I do the front, back, or both. I had been told before that the back
usually only need done every other time you do the front. Any truth to
this?

Any recommended shoes/pads? Someone said AutoZone carbon metallic were good
(as long as I load up on anti-squeak gel).

Thanks,

Rick
