Pretty crappy update, but better than none!

I have been sick, finally feeling better and got about an hour to work today.
Welded in the rear quarter corner and put a coat of filler on it.

Looks amazing so far. Makes me want a 78/79 Bronco, but I got enough toys for now.

Looks Great!! You are making me want to get into the garage and work on mine more. Wish I had more money and time, lol.
When you get ready to part out the leftovers post it up, there are lots of us that need parts that you will be getting rid of. I would rather buy it from a fellow FTE guy, especially knowing it will also help your project along.

Been so busy at work I haven't had time to work on the BKO for a couple of weeks.
Got a few hours today and a few more tomorrow.

Got the passenger rear quarter stripped down and started on the drivers side.
Also go the rear patch panel smoothed up.
The patch was not in as good of shape as I had hoped, it had some work done to it before I got ahold of it, looks pretty good now.




The driver side has 4 small dings, no big deal.

Not much progress to show for almost 4 hours of work today
Got most of the driver side quarter and removed the mud flaps.


Also got most of the driver fender stripped.


Get it covered up since it is supposed to rain tomorrow

Radius arm/ coil spring mounts finally arrived today, stupid Ballistic fab!



I am using this, it has the best reviews for an electric DA sander. I am also using a 10" long 2x4 and a 10" long piece of 3" PVC pipe.
