Subscribed! Great build so far! Being a student and working at the same time is rough. Glad to see that you can get stuff done on 'er still!

Nice! make sure to snap a pick before you pull out of the drive. That would be cool to see crap i just realized its may 14, time flies. The old man is doing pretty good. Ill tell him howdy for you . Ya i sold the bronco up here in kansas city. Needed the funds for other projects lol ol #88 is tempting but i need to put the money in ole betsy (front ball joints and new seals) should be interesting since i have never done axle seals before lol

-Front end seals and ball joints

-wheels painted
-rear bumper mounted
-interior finished
-change all fluids
-take bed rails off

Thanks man! I wish my wife was excited as I am so be able to work on this thing in my own garage soon.

I plan on taking a week off in March to do some work on her before we haul it 3hrs north.

Swap good used tires on the current wheels, tune up, fix broken rear strut, install rear bumper hardware/bumper. Look into why the gas gauge is not working for the rear tank. I would like to get rid of any and all unneccesary wiring but that can be done at home. The to do list is larger than that but I dont want to bore anyone following this lol.
