I wish I had your talent!
ha you have seen how many times I screw stuff up before I finally get it right, and thats just the times I choose to post it lol. talent no, persistence I'll give you that, I keep at it till I get it. but thanks. the bronco is running pretty well for just the base sniper tune, once my tuner guy gets done with the custom tune this thing will be awesome. it already turns a lot of heads.

All automotive problems can be fixed by throwing more money at them.

I put all the weatherstripping on.



then this weekend, I had my new son in law, help me get the new soft top on. then took it for a nice drive. the heater works pretty good, and the soft top keeps it surprisingly comfortable inside. it seals up much better than I expected. it was a lot more difficult to get it on and in place than expected, but with patience we managed it.

What a showpiece! How hard was it adding the snaps to the body metal?
we only had to put the two on, one on each side, and its just drill a hole and a sheet metal screw. used a paint pen on the snap to determine where to drill. it was not difficult. the difficult part was stretching the material to get the windows zipped in. I have had it sitting out, laying on top of my jeep right under my overhead heater, and kept the shop at 72 all week, but it was still a challenge. but we triumphed in the end.

a little more tuning on the sniper. It is running great. I am very happy with it. I also have my seatbelts in, and I did some tweaking of the throttle linkage. nothing much but it makes it more comfortable and smoother to drive. I need to bend my dual stick t-case linkage a bit more, it is still not quite how I want it. I eventually plan to swap to an atlas case, but no sense in leaving this less than optimal. I am really looking forward to taking this bronco on a nice cruise somewhere a bit further than around town. hopefully my next weekend off I can get it out and really see what it will do. I still need to get a horn for it, and a couple other minor tweaks, but overall this bronco is ready to show off, I love driving it. it never fails to get a thumbs up and a nice truck wherever I go. about the only major thing I want to do before the car show is I don't like the way the exhaust pipes hang with the body lift, so I am going to see if I can get a custom exhaust place to modify the tail pipes to tuck them up closer to the body. all minor stuff.
