it has been a while so i dug through some photos and found some to post. the first two are from when i was making a set of white faced gauges. the second is the beginning of my modified exhaust since i don't really like the design of the walker pipe, this should give the exhaust a smoother transition.
well I am back home, but haven't gotten much done other than a handful of little items, but more should be on the way soon.
radiator support was painted with chassis saver and then sprayed down with a coat of black enamel so it doesn't fade I also painted the inside of the fenders
the next step in the custom exhaust I am building, although now I need to get a 45 for it as this pipe almost reaches the ground! I have been thinking about running 3" all the way back, but haven't made up my mind yet.
finally got a little time in the busy harvest season to post some pics that i took over the past couple of months of my bronco
i worked an entire summer for my dad when i was 16 and he bought me this bronco and gave me a rebuilt 302 for it. i eventually traded it off, but when i got the chance to get it back i jumped on it, even though it is in nowhere near the shape it once was.
some more old pictures to kinda help keep the thread afloat. I should be home in december!
picture of a picture(note how the one side is kinda skewed) of the bronco back in about 2003 when i first bought the bronco:
front frame rails while coating with chassis saver
working on the exhaust:
pulling the suspension out of the 86. the 4" lift went to a buddy, i'm hanging onto the front beams to do my cut and turn. don't do this at home children!
I sold the drivetrain, and scrapped the remaining rusted hull and came out with 400 bucks more than i had into it! i hate sending detroit iron to its doom, but sometimes its for the best (rusted past saving and no title in sight)
last night i painted the heater box and made it look pretty again, kinda wish i had medium gloss instead of high gloss paint though.
and one with the fender on.
afterwards I dived into fixing the mount for the hood hinge:
doesn't exactly line up, im gonna see if the cowl will cover the variation, if not, im not sure what im gonna do with it.
I also started looking as to why whenever I place the right front fender in place I cant get it set so the the gaps look close. ended up laying on the floor with a tape measure and found out the body mounts on the passenger side are 3/8" shorter than the drivers side
looks like I'll be getting new body mounts for it. lmc has a 20 piece poly mount kit thats less than what buying the rubber individually would be. anybody have any experience with poly body mounts?
