Thanks guys! I got a bunch of parts back from powder coating.

Hinges, security post and door strikers are powder coated satin silver. I tried to match the satin silver color of my mirrors, looks pretty close to brushed stainless or billet aluminum.

The rest is just powder coated satin black like the rest of my parts.

The ass is back on the frame! It may someday be a bronco again! Now its time to paint the rear end, then hopefully the front end back installed and install the motor and tranny next week.

Looks great! The slow clean up/restoration of the many little parts takes forever it seems.

The insides had this crazy yellow substance on them, it smelled terrible when contacted with water. I stripped both, chemical dipped them and painted both. Then got new door bumpers and cleaned out the plastics. The rubber for the plastic door is a pain to deal with! Took me like an hour to get everything off, without breaking anything.
Have you figured out what to do for the little foam gasket that goes between the plastic piece and the sheet metal ?

I searched high and low and couldn't come up with anything.

Between the plastic part on the neck of the fill tube and the inside of the sheet metal there is a very dense closed cell foam gasket to keep it sealed up tight to the body.

I ended up reusing mine even though it wasn't in the best shape.

I don't have them. I wonder if I could it for a ford truck. They seem to use the same doors as did a little later broncos.

Started working on my 4R70W install. Advanced Adapters instructions are a joke, literally worse then just googling. The heating the aluminum and cooling the bearing and gasket worked perfectly. That was a great tip. My dana 20 didn't want to come apart, but eventually it all came apart. Both snap rings were also a pain to install.

I still had to use a rubber mallet to get the new spud to seat far enough onto the bearing, you will know you haven't gone far enough because the small snap ring won't go on. Hope this helps. I used the wild horses kit 50-2704A. Everything needed a little love to go together.

The AA kit came with the O-ring and the seal. So I bought those and I wont' need them. Good to know though.

I also used this thread. It was a huge help!

Ok, I had to cut off a little more then 3/4" from my awd 4r70w shaft. I used a cut off wheel, and spun the tranny as I went, I took my time and the cut was almost perfect. The amount I picked to cut was .8", I wanted a little bit of play to not put strain on anything. Then I installed the new JB Custom "J" type stainless twin stick. Model PN- EB20JT4. Which bolted right on. I'm pretty happy, now I need to do the shift kit on it.

I changed a bunch of the bolts out to stainless, I just like the way it looks.

Cutting the crossmember wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. I will get it welded up today and then off to powder coat tomorrow.

We are test fitting some body panels to the new inner core structure and put the body back on the frame. It's nice to see the stance a little and the progress seems to be moving along. The tires are 31x10.5. I am still planning on clearing 285 or 275/70-17

So, my grill middle is pretty beat up. I was going to replace it but we are going a different route. Here is my grill I am working on. My friend owes me a water jet favor, so I am going for it. It's obviously a clone of the Icon grill, but with some changes. It will have tabs to bolt it on and will be made out of brushed 14 gauge stainless steel. The plan is to cut the middle of the grill out and use the stock headlight buckets.

I hope Icon doesn't get mad at me for this. I wish I could afford one of their amazing rigs, and they helped re-spur my bronco love.

Something like that could be figured out, I want to see how it looks- works with being a bolt in.

Finished the welding on the crossmember. I don't have the bushings, so lets hope I cut enough out! Turned out pretty darn clean
