Put it on the dyno at work today. Getting a baseline before a carb rebuild and tune. The only “tuning” I’ve done is keeping it running.

Started on the rear sway bar arms. Lots of welding in my future.

Have I mentioned how much I enjoy sanding? Im never sanding a vehicle again haha. There were 4 paint jobs on my Bronco and 3 layers of primer. The last picture shows the yellow it was. Beneath that was primer and a lighter yellow. Then a dark primer, a light primer, then red(halfcab photo) and then the stock green. No primer under that from what I could tell. So close to being done though!

Took the doors off as well. Need to remove the handles, hinges and key slot which Ive not done before

Found my painter but I need a body guy to smooth a few issues out. I also need to figure out what to do with the rocker and bed cap seams. Leaning towards welding them up for a smooth look so I don't have to worry about it cracking down the road

Found a KbarS stainless steel mirror to match my driver side.. should have bought two way back then.. made by Grote. They still make this style but only in black..

Finally finished up my spare tire carrier. I wanted something that mounted on the stock bumper without needing to weld or drill the bumper itself. The pivot point mounts on a bracket the nests in the back of the bumper and bolts to the frame using existing holes. I am not sure it was needed, but I added a short swingarm section for the actual tire mount that has a rubber damper to reduce the shock load from the mass of the tire. Still a rattle can paint job as I put some miles on to check for any weak points.

Installing Duff Long arms ...Holly S laying on your back while drilling sucks. I have the passengers side frame bracket drill and mount. Going to work on that today and hopefully get to mounting the arms and try to level them out.
