Gas tank floats : 1 floater, 1 sinker

Luckily I had one in an old fuel pump sitting around. The old one would have sank all the way to the bottom eventually.



Not a great pic, I realize, but the rear body crossmember brace is showing some rust.



This is the other side with flash. I did notice too with the rear carpet out the seam by the tailgate has a small amount bubbling up. Not good. Anybody know what I'm in for to fix this?

Looks like you are doing a good job on the restoration. Once you get it fixed and start driving it you are going to have a hard time getting rid of it

You're right about that.


Somehow ended up with a free afternoon on Saturday so I went ahead and got the Bronc all put back together. Had to torque all the rear suspension pieces I just replaced and get the back half of the interior put back in. Man that rear seat is heavy, should not have lifted it in there by myself, that was dumb but I was on a roll and wanted to be done. Took it for a good long test drive hauling the dogs to the dog park and it was great.























You'll notice the stock wheels back on and here's the deal. I'm at the point where I had agreed with the boss to put it up for sale. Of course now that the hard stuff is done and I can actually drive it and enjoy it a little I'm thinking I don't want to lol. I did put it up for sale but priced it high IMHO and I'll see what happens I guess. I'd love to keep it and build it how I want for a daily driver but I really don't have the time right now and won't for a year or two. The '77 still needs finished and there is much to do.

Not much new. Got a new job and a raise so I decided to keep the old Bronco. Had some '94 Lightning wheels sitting around, powdercoated them black and mounted up some 265/70-17 mud tires I had sitting around. Also had a new windshield put in to replace the one damaged in the wreck. Need a RH inner tie rod and some new front springs to replace the sagging ones. May get around to paint some time next year. Need to find another hood as this one now has hail damage.
