Appreciate the support guys. Tugross302, I can assure you that you have as much knowledge and skill as I do. I've owned this bronco for 19yrs and finally decided to bite the bullet and dive in on the rebuild. This site has given me a false since of confidence lol.

That's right where I was about two years ago. I wasn't even looking for a Bronco when an old friend called wanting to sell his so he could buy a new F250. In a couple of weeks I had the frame being blasted in my driveway and now its driving and almost done. Like Sandman says, take a lot of detailed pics and mark and bag those nuts and bolts as you will be looking back wondering where some things go. I can remember going into my garage and seeing a tub, a frame, a motor, a dana 44, a dana 20, a nine inch, radius arms, a c4, etc, etc, etc, etc strewn across my garage wondering if I would ever drive this thing. I would always try to get something done every day even if it was little. A lot of helpful and knowledgeable people on here that are happy to help you.

Identified some rust area's this weekend. Haven't had it blasted yet but hopefully sand blasting won't uncover much more. So far window cowl, both rockers, driverside innerdoor skin, passenger side outer door skin, driverside inner side wall and sections from both floor pans will need to be replaced. PO fiberglassed the floor pans and then screwed sheet metal over it. Instead of patching in sections of floor pans thinking about just purchasing an entire front floor pan like the picture below and welding that in.

I used that exact floor pan assembly. Just finished fitting/installing, Fits good, Does not have any of the holes pre-drilled for seats, seat belts #3 brace body mounts. Prior to ordering I suggest to see if your INNER Rockers are any good. If they need replacing suggest purchasing complete 1 piece floor assembly $ 659. buy a kit of BLAIR Rotobroach 3/8 spot welder removal bits. Better than HF

If you have your choice between being good or being lucky, choose both.

Hope it goes well. The sheet metal and body work can be time consuming with little reward. Stay with it. Know the cool stuff is just around the corner.

In process of restoring my Baby Blu (68 LUBR). Glad I shot video of everything. Used my phone and saved the files to my computer. When I was tearing it apart several times I thought "I'll remember how that goes." Wrong. Already had to go back and look at a few things because I forgot what went where and the orientation.

Bagged and tagged all parts.

When I disassembled my Dana 20 I set up a tripod and video camera and recorded the whole thing. Doing the rebuild now and have the footage on my iPad so if I forget which order the shims were in I can look it up. Hope that helps.

I've thought about using a go-pro to video some stuff and probably will. There's no way I would ever attempt this with out the resource of this forum though. Wealth of helpful information and nice people.

Got the body off the frame this week. Unpleasantly surprised to find that my bronco has been wrecked at some time during its life and the repairs were less then professional. Oh well, lucky me.

Have you considered the one piece (already welded) floor pan?
