OK first off, back in February I had an accident involving my Truck, my Harley and my trailer. Well the trailer I fixed, the bike was totalled and insurance got me another bike, now to the truck part of this story. Below are pictures of the damage and the repair work done. I added a set of 1990 Full size Bronco Eddie Bauer Special edition bucket seats and center console. I had to cut the mounts on the bottom of the seats and weld them back on so they would sit properly in the truck. It took some doing but I got them in and working perfectly. I got them from Pull-A-Part for $21.00 each! The center console was $11.00. I also have another fender to put on but that will come later. I had to replace the drivers side fender and entire front assembly including bumper and all lighting. I used the front clip from a 1976 F150. The radiator support was bent as was the two frame supports for the radiator and bumper. With the use of a BFSH I was able to straighten everything out at no cost. The guy that sold me the front assembly had a brand new drivers side fender in the barn but it was yellow. So with the use of rattle can "leather brown" rustoleum paint, it now matches really close!! I found a replacement "F150" emblem off ebay and the remainder of the trim and molding I actually straightened it all out myself. The truck is far from perfect but I think it looks as good if not better then before I wrecked it. Let me know what you think guys..
First is a photo of before I wrecked it:
Now pictures of the damage and tear down and repair:
Tear down & repair:
Now with the finished look and seats. ( I still have to install the XLT emblem on the front yet)
I am facing a somewhat more difficult version of the same problem with my 75 F-150. The front frame horns are badly mangled and on the passenger side, bent where the engine crossmember is attached to the frame. Dare I ask what a BFSH is?
