    since the seats I ordered from Toms Broncos are on back order and won't be available until November, I decided to get some procar seats from wild horses they were in stock and should be here in a couple days. in the mean time I took an old foxbody mustang seat and sat it in place so I could...

    yeah the tape just protects the paint from me leaning over it and banging the doors etc. and I intend to show off the bronco, but I will be driving it on nice days. probably not much this winter sadly.

    My baby girls wedding was Friday, my number one helper. but now that I am not working on wedding planning and prep, I finally finished wiring the last circuit. then I started testing circuits. I had a minor snafu that took me way too long to figure out. when I tried to test my gauge...

    I had my daughter and future son in law help me get the dash in place. what a PITA. but that is a major step. I've finished the wiring to the taillights and finished the wiring to the fuel tank. I got the filler neck tube installed, and basically buttoned up the back half of the truck. I...

    slow but sure. I get a little done every night, but with the wedding preparations and everything it is slow. especially since my daughter decided she wanted to have the reception at our house due to this Covid 19 thing. so we have been doing some minor remodeling and major yard work for the...

    the fitech system has a wire that goes to the fuel pump so I decided to finish up that part of the system first. I ran all the wiring to the back of the bronco. including the amp research power steps. I loomed it all with power braid and tried to hide the wiring and keep it away from any sharp...

    some guy on my classic Bronco page asked for a picture of the underside of the hood, so I took one last night. I thought you all would appreciate it, before all the hoses and wiring ugly it up.

    They did a great job on the bodywork. It cost a lot more than expected but the results are excellent. It has been unbearably hot and humid here lately so I had to wait until about 1:00 am every night to do the 2 layers of lizard skin sound deadening, wait 24 hours 2 layers of lizard skin...

    the bronco is home now. they did a great job. it looks awesome. I am almost afraid to start working on it. but hopefully in the next few days I will get around to lizard skinning the interior so I can start on the re assembly. but I think the first thing I am going to do is mount the ac...

    thanks. My wifes younger brother passed away from a sudden and completely unexpected heart attack. he never mentioned any symptoms to anyone, so it was a total shocker and my wife is taking it pretty hard. but life goes on so we will survive.

    well some semi bad news. there was a fire at the shop where the bronco is getting painted. it was right where my bronco had been sitting. they moved it into the paint booth before they left for the night in preparation for doing the stripes. a 2019 traverse was parked where it had been and...

    ok you asked for it, the non jeep build thread.

    there is still a lot of work before I get to bring it home, but this is a big step and it looks great to me. I am hoping it will be sitting on the chassis by the end of the month. but they still have to stripe it, clear coat again, color sand and buff, and do the bed liner underneath. then...

    ok you asked for it, the non jeep build thread.

    here is a little update. not much going on. I did redo my fuel lines a bit initially the fitech tech support people said that i did not need to run a return line from both throttle bodies so I didn't, but recently I have read about people with this system that have had problems without it so I...

    ok you asked for it, the non jeep build thread.

    so I found this bronco design app from a link on facebook and I was playing around with customizing my bronco. Now I am thinking of a kind of a Bronco GT theme. picture this rendering with Brittany Blue and wimbledon white stripes. this is as close as I could come on the app. obviously the...

    I’m afraid your point about not receiving mail at my house made the decision for me, so in that case it did count lol
