I am currently fixing up a B2 I bought from my sister mostly because I was hurting for a vehicle. My plan was to drive it until it broke down or until I saved enough money for a down payment on something else. Then I started to slowly repair a bunch of issues and learned a ton of stuff about it. Lo and behold I fell in love with the thing. I decided instead of taking on a healthy car payment I will fix the one up. I'm getting to know every nut and bolt on this thing learning as I go. I have repaired the smashed rear quarter panel and am now doing a complete interior swap. 88 to 89 including the dash. I decided to share on this forum mostly because I could find very little info on the dash swap and had to figure it out myself. as soon as I figure out how to share pictures on this forum I have a bunch of them. Looks like I figured it out :) This is the quarter panel I fixed myself. The body shop wanted $2000 just to fix the dent, no paint. I am not even close to a professional but I am very good at teaching myself things and researching them.

Bitten by the Bronco II bug eh? Will follow with great interest. Just bought my first one a few weeks ago + learning also.

Very nice job. I just got an 89' B2 last weekend and of course it's got some rust and dents as well.

I've recovered the headliner in my Bronco II. It's pretty easy. Hit a local fabric / craft store for the headliner material and some spray adhesive. The biggest problem I ran in to was the backing the adhesive is stuck to. Mine was starting to crack. I reinforced the backs of the cracks with Gorilla tape before applying the material to the face of it.
