Garage and Brakes

Haven’t posted much, been busy yet slow with the car.

Worked on adding 4′ to my garage so I would have space to work and stuff. A LOT more work then I expected, but it turned out great….

I also re-painted the garage too so it looks beautiful now. Don’t yell at me, but I’m using my spare hood as a shelf for now. The extra ’70/’71 back seats are for sale…

My ’78 Bronco was happy to be home after a year of having to sit in the drive way.

It’s been 11 months since the car went off for paint, it’s supposed to be getting color this week, so I decided it’s time to test-fit and organize all the front suspension parts. So I’ve done that. Bought new wilwood brakes too:

It’s like Christmas!

My Pretty new rims (15×7), now I just have to figure out tires to put on them!

Hopefully the car will actually get paint next week!

Vert Top Rebuild

SO the vert top is partially back together… Got one side done and took me 3 hours….

It was a lot tougher to put back together because of the powder coating, I didn’t realize how much thickness that would add.

Extended

Only a few extra parts, mostly washers that wouldn’t fit on the bolts because of the added thickness.

I sure hope it’s right!
