Just got an update from the fellow who is doing all of the welding on the new body. He sent me a text with two photos and the words "jigsaw puzzle"
:lol:

Haha yeah they certainly are a puzzle.

I've never done a Bronco tub from a box, but I've done a couple Jeeps and a Camaro. New is nice, but it sure is a lot of work when you don't have the Big Three's assembly line to help!

The dash came out of the green tub. So I'm glad that at least one thing from 1971 is going to be on there.

Another piece of the puzzle! What are you using for a bellhousing on that?

Funny you mention that. We have been asking everyone and their brother what bellhousing we need to use. Turns out a standard Ford manual bellhousing will work.

They will. Just wasn't sure if you were going for something fancy or a hi zoot clutch or something.

Sure will be a nice driving package.

Actually there has been quite a bit. I just haven't been posting it on here since it seems like it's just you, me, Kevin and the spammers.
But, what the heck, why not.
I have some photos on my desktop at work. I'll get them loaded up on here tomorrow, get everyone up to speed.
