Good to see you here - I'm sure you will find some useful info if you search around a bit
Can't believe I never knew about this place, it's like an abandoned junk-yard. That's a complement! Now crazy thought's of another crewcab 7.3 IDI auto are bouncing around my noggin. Something for fuel milage you know?
I'm going to post this here because there has been a lot of talk on headliners recently. I am going to use a single piece of formica countertop. It is about 1/16" thick so it is very flexible. I'll update once I find the right material that I'll use to cover it.
Thanks Scott for the picture of the headliner. That seems like a logical solution to the old two part headliner and get rid of the plastic middle strip. What type of material are you going to cover it with? How did you get the exact shape onto the formica - use your old headliners as a pattern?
1996 F150 4x4, 351, auto, LB, K&N Filtercharger, "Silver Bullet"
1978 F250 Crewcab 4x4 "in the works" .....finished 6 years later!
Old headliner as a pattern and added a 1 1/2" to make up for the gap in the middle. The countertop guy (my next door neighbor at the shop) was nice enough to use his router and belt sander to dial it in. I'm going to use 1/4-3/8" padding and then the material, probably vinyl. Have to wait till I find it at the store first.
I found this '77 f250 4x2 cab at a local junkyard, I couldn't let it get crushed so I brought it home to be stored for a little while to I figure out what i wanna do with it , for a PA truck, it is pretty descent, has a little rust but is repairable
I have the extra 2 tone moulding pieces also, I originally wnet and got all of that stuff as well as the back doors because they wouldn't sell me the whole truck, so a day later a called and bought the cab atleast. May do a 4 door bronco conversion someday!
I know you are not supposed to post for sale in the forums but no matter what I try I can't get it to work in the classifieds. I even emailed the site admin and did everything they told me to do and it still would not work so I am sorry.
hey bronk...I have some crew cab 4wd frames in NJ,,, 1 may be going to WV and the other is up for grabs still, as well as a 2wd long box crew frame and a reg cab 4wd frame for the conversion
good score on the cab and a NOBLE gesture saving it form the crusher.....not that JOHNNY would care...if'en he is peering in..hi JOHNNY!
Thanx lostinfords, im not sure what frame i'm gonna use yet, i haven't done any measuring to see how long a 4 door bronco will be, what wheelbase i need! I have frames from '79 3/4 ton regular cabs around that i don't if they'll work or can be safely modified to work or not!
CALVE, As far as the shortbed to longbed, i would say it would be easier to find someone on here with a crewcab longbed frame to change your body onto and find a nice 8 foot bed to suit your needs, if you would go from longbed to short bed, you could cut your frame and box both down to make what you want, either way it is a lot of work to do the conversion right!
