I've managed to make a little progress the last few days. I sanded and prepped the core support for primer.

Then epoxy primer and some seam sealer for extra insurance.

Then it was time for 2 coats of color and 2 of clear.

Then on to the underside of the hood. Apparently no before or during pictures on this one.

Also did the inside of one fender. Prepped, epoxy primer and a little seam sealer.

Now time for color and clear. My 10 year old daughter sprayed this one. She did good on her first try

Now for the tailgate. I prepped it then sprayed with epoxy primer and sealed the seams with seam sealer and made good paths for drainage.

And of course some more color and clear. I'm trying out a high solids clear for this that is supposed to be more scratch resistant. We'll see how true that is!

Glad to see the FSB is getting a little work done.

Didn't do too much with it this winter. At least nowhere near what I wanted to. Spent too much time remodeling 3/4 of my basement. After putting 1500 lbs of tile down I decided to take a break and play with the kids. But hopefully now back on track. Kids want to go exploring in it.

When done, you’re going to have an almost 200k rig… it will be so worth the time you’re putting in. Even if it is between projects… I know the feeling, I didn’t get much done to mine this winter either, and probably won’t get much done this spring… I’m waiting for the money to prefer a Edlebroxk Pro-Flow 4 EFI system to fix my drivability problems after the engine swap.

I was thinking MAF as well… but I’m finding it is harder and harder to find replacement ECUs for these rigs, so aftermarket EFI… I have been doing some research on the subject and the Pro Flow 4 is the only system able to be tuned from an iPhone…

True I have a maf factory one for a 95 and correct transmission. But I haven't looked into available replacements. Going to have to do that.

Took the doors off and sanded them along with the door jams. Needed new hinge bushings anyway. Got them primed, color, and cleared. Didn't take much for pictures this time.

Took a fair bit of time but I managed to get it done this weekend and it turned out pretty good.

Starting to look like a Bronco again. I need to post some updates on my build thread…
