Other Notes Images
One custom trick we did was put the gas filler cap on the inside rear qtr instead of cutting on the brand new rear dr side qtr.Installed 23gal. Aero Tank.Also eliminated the seam in the rear qtrs. Installed a Rampage soft top from the bronco graveyard,it's nice,can't wait to take it off this summer woohoo. Also installed some seat covers for now, till I can have the seats redone.I painted her in my garage base/clear with Sherwin Williams 2stage automotive paint.
