Tim's Bronco Build

I have been steadily doing upgrades since I bought this rig several years ago. I'm starting the process of taking the body off having it repaired and painted. I'm not planning on any severe off-road type stuff more along the lines of the overland expedition type of off-reading.

So it begins, the last of the old.

Got the top off and pretty much did winter prep stuff yesterday.







I came up with a little better way of doing this. Next time I guess.




The Old headliner is in pretty bad shape.

Nice work. That is my dream truck. What year is that? Is that your '69 in your signature? If I could have any truck I wanted I would either get the '71 baja Bill Stroppe edition Bronco or yours, a '69 Blue and White.

Thanks Guys,

hharris8, Yes it is a 69'

Gerry, I did drive it with the auto, it works really nice. The controller is pretty cool, you can program it with a laptop for shift points and whether or not you want the torque converter locked up or not.

Tim, Maria bought me a set of forks for my birthday last year!

Here is how I have the top now. I need to tie it down a little better before I take it to the body shop, but I can move it around out of way for the time being.
