Started my 74' frame off

It's on now. Started at 7:30am sat morning and by 4:00 pm had engine, trans/transfer case, gas tanks, interior, dash, carpet, hardtop and misc stuff out and ready to pull body. Anybody that wants to watch an amateur with lots of ambition but little skill do a full body resto can follow along. it should be entertaining. I'm doing a spreadsheet with all parts used and money spent for anyone interested. Help will be asked frequently of you guys, mercy will be appreciated in your responses.

Cool deal, po owner bought the bronco from someone in Roanoke rapids. No idea who. I'm getting ready to start bodywork. Hope to get it blasted in the next few weeks so I can see what I'm really working with. Right now I know I need to replace 2 floor pans, both rockers, driver side inside door skin, passenger outside door skin and windshield cowl. Hopefully that will be it.

Right on! The tear down is the best part in my opinion. You start out guns a blazin, just don't let the project overwhelm you. Keep plugging away and keep the pics coming!
Good luck Sir! I look forward to seeing the build progress!
