Looks good! I am excited to see it finished. Mine is in the booth now. Also found some other black broncos as inspiration.
Looking good!

I remember seeing Simons a few years ago. That's one of the oddest-looking roll bars I've seen and it doesn't have wipers (which is fine for SoCal I guess).

Absent the coyote engine, I should end up pretty close to this Velocity build in the picture below but I will have the Sport trim on mine.

I currently have 15x8 Pro Comp 69 wheels and need to decide if I'm going to add the 17 x 9's M/Ts they used but need to figure out if that will be too much wheel for my 1.5" lift. If I stay with the 15x8s. I am going to slim down the tires from 33/12.5/15 to 33/10.5/15.

I have everything I need in boxes and hope to have it back together this weekend.

Progress report. Ignore the School bus and the Semi.

Probably the quickest turnaround for a paint job done at a different facility than the owner on record!
Whoever your shop is could get a ton of work just from classicbroncos if word got out that they could finish a job in just a couple of weeks from the day of delivery.

Did you drop it off already in primer, or was that part of the job as well?
Either way, congrats on getting it done and I hope you like it as much as the other color posibilities.

I will post more pictures later but here are a few. I spent all day Saturday putting it back together and let's just say my attempted attention to detail when tearing it down caused a few issues during re-assembly.

That looks amazing! And the interior pop.

We had at least one black Bronco at the Roundup again, but I forgot to ask them if it was an original Raven Black, or a change.

Thank you (all). It started out black and as much as I wanted something else to replace the overspray green, I think this was the best decision and when I see it all together, it makes perfect sense. Not really a chrome person but it makes it look less like a 'murder' victim.

This is the Velocity Bronco I used as a 'mental model' to paint and finish out my Bronco. Not a fair comparison because so much more goes into a high-end build like this one but here is my $244K vs $44K comparison shot.

If you just posted both pics and asked me to choose one, I’d have picked your rig’s appearance, interior and trim as the better looking combination. Sure there’s more goodies in the high end build, but I think you’re $200K ahead!

Hard to tell the difference! The black sort of gives it some dignity. Very Tasty.
