I really regret not pulling more of the interior but it was pretty moldy
whorehouse red parts would not look good with your blue interior

My interior is actually tan. If I had kept some of the red interior I could have painted it with vinyl paint. Missed opportunities.

As for an update:

The Bronco has been moved to my house from my parents house. Having to travel to work on it was not going so well. A very generous coworker helped me move the truck.



New tires have been ordered and I have 90 days to return them if I can't get it running. The engine is back in, it has a new brake booster and master cylinder from the later Bronco II's. I was trying to crank it last October/November and I gave up out of frustration (again the traveling factor was huge). Now I can walk out my door, spend some time and walk away coming back later.

I think I am very close. Once it is up and running I will be tackling the rust issues that have set in from the sitting. Right now it is mostly cosmetic. Hopefully that is the case when I dig deeper. There is a spot on the firewall I want to repair and most other structural areas aside from the driver floor pan looks fine.

I did get a new car in the mean time.

Well some great news. Got the Bronco cranking tonight. I was jumping the starter relay but it cranks. Needs a better ground for the starter. That was the original issue back in November.

Now I just need to finish wiring it up and can attempt the first run since the engine was pulled. Hopefully next week since I am on vacation starting tomorrow.
