Very productive couple of hours after work today. I managed to successfully apply the new black carpet to the lower part of the door panels. Looks OEM I might say. Really good stuff.

Plus I managed to start patching the holes in the dash pad. I decided to fiberglas reinforce the face of the pad then put some bondo on it and have started sanding it out. I forgot how easy bondo is. Way easier than the fiberglas part.

Screw that, he can be cool without the collection


Nice to see it back up and running Gary! (The thread that is... Makes me sad the Bronco isn't)

Another productive say. With a little luck this weekend I might get the dash back in and the two door panels back on. Some new parts are also on their way but I doubt they will arrive till late next week.

I have to ask Gary, are all those garages in your pictures yours? I think I count 2 + the one the truck is in... Either way nice place Good luck getting it together before the truck comes in!

Yeah. I've got 3 garages. 2 attached to the house that the wife uses for her Expi and I use for Seven.

The spare single garage is used for whatever project I'm working on. Right now the Bronco is in there leaking oil all over the floor. Thankfully the floor is epoxied.

I'm trying to sell the house so I can get more garages. 4 or maybe 5.

Exactly, move the garage not the house. They are supposedly pretty popular in Texas (I looked into them after finding that).

Whatever I do. I will have a 'shop' that will be tall enough inside for a full lift.

I'm thinking I build the house and make the wife happy. And then I build the shop immediately after that.

If I could find some acreage around here that'd be even better.

Well some new parts came in today. And I made progress on the doors last night. The depressing thing is I looked under the vehicle last night only to find leaking from the transfer case, transmission pan, and oil pan. And getting all the suspension parts and exhaust manifold off when I start doing that work is gonna be a ***** with all the surface rust. The truck is sound and in good condition, but so many items need a little work to be perfect. I think every seal and gasket of any kind needs to be replaced.

Anyway. Pics tonight of the door interior panels.

LOL my old 83 F150 has more drips than I can count. Doesn't amount to hardly any loss though. That's why they made gravel driveways.

I hear Nathan is an expert at getting those out, maybe this summer he can take a ride down to TX and help you get one loose, should only take a month or two...

I hope the next time you go to loosen a bolt, the whole thing falls apart.

Ya, but it'll take you a few years to put it back together.
