Yep, although, since the first of the year it's been slow. Other things keep coming up. But we'll get back on it soon.

Well, we finally got the other Bronco out of the shop. So now we can focus on this project. Not much real progress, other than finally got some stuff welded onto the frame. I'm going to attach some photos, hopefully they last.

Dropped stuff off at the Powder coater's this afternoon. They'll sandblast everything and then powder coat it. The guy in charge said they are way behind right now, so it could be a month before we get everything back. :?

Always like to see progress. I am guessing if stuff is going to powder coating, pop-in-law has a color scheme in mind. It seems like the older I get the more rust color grows on me, LOL.

Yes, progress is good. Even if it is slow.
Father-in-law is thinking about going with a baja bronco look.

Dropped the motor off with the builder. He says he's got a bit of a backlog, so it will be a few weeks.
