1985 Bronco is starting off with a positive reputation.
I've done a few little things in the past 2 weeks

Painted the tan hood, and the fender that was the wrong color white



3 coats of white, then added the lower gray portion

And here it is with the pinstripe



80-86 interior door handles



Also picked up a good 80-86 driver's side inner fender. Struggled with removing all the rusty bolts for an hour in the rain at the junkyard. Ended up cutting the fender and finished removing them at home in the garage. Still need to find a good passenger one. Both of the ones I got from the parts truck were damaged.



Also had my new belt routing decal show up today. Ordered it from Late Model Restoration (LMR). Their website says it is for 93-95 Lightnings, but it matched the one that was on my other core support. Not an exact reproduction, but still very close, and it was a Ford Licensed part.



Installed on the bronco:



Also ordered all the parts to completely rebuild the rear brakes, including drums. They should be here tomorrow. The adjusters are backed all the way off, and I cannot get the drums off. I spent over an hour hitting them with a deadblow. Going to try a sledge hammer next, wanted to wait until all the parts got here in case I broke a drum in half. Still need a good passenger fender, and to modify those bumper mounts. Also want to sandblast and paint a bunch of brackets black that are visible through the grille.

Yes, I just haven't ordered them yet. When we put the quarters on, we grafted in the 80-86 lower portion below the taillight. Hopefully they will look okay with the 90s upper part.
