Oh it's nice,
I believe I pulled a second place Trophy right behind one of Don Peronis immaculate resto the first time I had it out at an Early Bronco meet back in 2002. It's one fine truck no matter how you look at it.I'm just glad I had the chance to save it. Mike- Will see what I can dig out for you as far as old pics go.

Thanks for PM. I'll let you see mine if I can see yours

Its not yet to my standards for venturing much further than around the block, I've only had it since last Wed. Need to get the column fixed up and I believe the seal between the trans and transfer case is leaking. The transfer case is bleeding ATF. My son and I spent much of the weekend power-washing, checking things out, fixing other leaks, and tidying up wiring.

Good catch on the alt / PS, they were in the correct location when I got it.

Thanks,
Mike Schneider

I was looking at that pic when I scanned it and vaguely remembered that the power steering and alternator were backwards. Oddball setup for sure. Glad to hear it's back to normal.

I'm glad you have a better memory for this stuff than I do! I still have my fender hanging in the barn too - I had forgotten that it came from this truck via a previous owner but that makes sense now that i think of it.

I cut mine into a cactus shape....you can see it on the backwall of my shop. Todds is much better, i wouldn't cut his up.... Was fun to find these fenders thru Todd years after we looked at it in the lot. I think he showed it to me in 2001?

Wow....! This truck has history to say the least. Glad to be part of it.

Could this thread be moved from the 'For Sale' section to somewhere more appropriate? I'd like to keep it a running log and add to it as the project progresses.

Thanks,
Mike Schneider

yeah, lets move the thread. Anxious to help put her back to stock/how she's wanted.

Here's the fender before I freehanded it into cactus.

Interesting top strap on the driver's side of the radiator. Is that hole a Stroppe thing for lightening things up?
Or is it just a fluke?
