@keithmeasures found these on the good ol' market place and minutes later I messaged the dude and somehow ended up getting them with many, many people on the list! Well my mom did haha. Her smile expresses how happy she is to finally have a set for her Datsun 510! Haha not everyones taste but eh it's her car 🤷 hope y'all have a good week! #ronal #teddybear thanks again dude!
" I like your new hair, it's so fast " - @ryleyantoniuk hahaha. Hope y'all had a good Saturday!
Wish I didn't crash this thing so I could be cruising
Got waaaayyyy more work done than I anticipated haha. And even spent time with the ladyfrieennndddd! 🥰 boy am I stoked. Thought I was falling behind but guess I wasn't. Got the body drop done, all the coils in, long arms, new shocks, shock mounts steering all mocked up and a panhard made. Need to make the panhard mounts tomorrow as I already drew it out and then rear shock mounts, disk brakes and a few other things and I'm kinda done haha. Man am I excited. I'm so god dam amped on the front end. #bronco #earlybronco #ebbronco
Got all the front end cut out, rear leafs are mocked and in, still need to make rear shock mounts, but have material. Gotta kind of do a different take then I anticipated before hand on what doing next but think I'll do the body drop next, then long arms, plum Bob for my coils and then steering panhard and Trac bar uhg lol so much shit. Oh and need to pull the exhaust but hopefully get the long arms in tomorrow night and do a big haul. Well. Happy Thursday 20 days to go. #ebbronco #bronco #earlybronco #firstgenbronco #babybronco #ford
Did a big push on pops truck. Got it running and driving a few more things to finish before it's insured, did a big clean up but still a shit load more and need to make a dump run to clear up all the remaining shit I have accumulated and get a fresh start on this thing. Although I did get the rear leafs out and new bushings in one I need to reinforce the shackles and do a few other little odds and ends but other than every bolt being seized it's going pretty alright haha. Second photo is all the stuff I need to install within the next 28 days hahahaha. James Duff long arm, wildhorses progressive coils and long travel leafs, body drop, disk brakes, Chevy 1 ton steering, fox 2.0s and a bunch of other shit Then whipsaw! The shit I fucking do to myself to force me to actually get shit done boggles my own mind. But hey! Pretty darn stoked to be doing me! Hope y'all had a great week and this Monday gives you glory ✌️ #bronco #earlybronco #ebbronco #wildhorses #wildhorsesbroncos #jamesduff #dufftuff #tmrcustoms
It runs, it stops, it goes up, and it goes down. Still a bit more to do but time to drive it and start on the bronco. Super happy! Haha building 4 things at once is getting to be hard. Lol
Well here's the new slidey car. Very excited. It's on bc coils and has a few fancy parts and 5 speed! Throwing my 1jzgte vvti and r154 with a few goodies into it for an old man sleeper with 300 wheel! Haha I'm so dam excited 🥰 thanks again Michael!
James Duff long arms, 78/79 coil buckets, f250 shock towers, @wildhorsesbroncos 5.5 progressive coils and some home made brackets! Ordered some wild horses 11 packs and now hopefully @foxracing feels like supporting me and hooks me up with some fox shocks 👀 haha. Bronco will be jumping loading docks soon. I hope hahahaha.top rusty arm is the stock radius arms that were on the trucks from 66-79! Notice how much longer the duff arms are! #bronco #earlybronco #ebbronco
Went for a boogie. Ended up on top of a ridge.
Last one 😂
This thing is fucking freightening. Need all new front end. And maybe a steering box. But it is insured and drives! And definitely thanks @wildhorsesbroncos for the steering box tip last week. Definitely need to reinforce the front frame.. and get 35s haha. Hope y'all had a good Tuesday!
For everyone wondering. This thing was a rust bucket, it still isn't perfect but it'll be good enough to last, and drive and that's my intentions! It's a 3 dressed up as a 9 honestly well now it's more of a 6 as a 9 but still! Hahaha looked back and realized I only posted shit on my story. But here's some truth! I've replaced the floors, exhaust, quarters, all the weather seals, fuel tank, hell o can go on. But it hurts my pocket. #1974 #ford #bronco #ebbronco #earlybronco
The is300/altezza chassis is probably the one I hate the most. But somehow @kevin_serialnine you fuckin did it dude. You build one of very very few I like! That that that means anything but great work dude 👌
--> swipe for more <-- I guess I had never really posted any detailed shots of this roof. I was looking back and found some! This paint job was was quite spontaneous, out of spite. To be honest the whole car was a spite build. I had no intentions of building a 54 hardtop. I actually hate hardtops and prefer the post but eh. Anyways it was supposed to be a colab of a paint job but that went South so I started locking myself in my garage and the only people that could get a hold of me were people that had the key to my shop or I needed their help lol. But yeah. 200 hours later, a shit load of paint. Some panels have 4+ things in them and I'm pretty happy I pulled it off. There's a lot going on. Almost to much for myself but I am so happy I did it and stoked it had lead me onto getting the bronco! #painthuffermetalflake #kustom #paint #metalflake
So a few weeks ago Charlie and I made quite the spontaneous trip to the island, it had started by me getting notice I had to go back to work the following Monday and it was Tuesday, had a few days of sun coming up so I had messaged sarra when she was off and she had said today (wed ) was her last day so In my head I was like sick, that means she has a few days off and wether she likes it or not we're comin for ya! So she said sure, and I pretty much told Charlie wed night "there's a ferry that leaves at 6:45 tomorrow morning and you're meeting me there, pack light we're going on a trip, 2 days of sun and we'll have a place to stay " fast forward 9 hours we're on the main drag to the ferry terminal and Charlie rolls up beside me and it set the tone for the whole trip without even planning. From there on we had taken all the back roads and park ways to Nanaimo and headed towards Tofino, went and seen sarra and went for a dip in the lake with a fresh batch of bbq and veggies to nom on after made by her wonderful husband! Thanks Max! And then over dinner Max and sarra were like you should hit up Powell River and take the sunshine coast all the way back and yet another early morning that's what we did! Put down almost 750km in two days, tons of great people, great laughs and a dam good time! Super stoked to have great people in my life. I was going to make a blog post but I had forgotten my camera and I'm sticking to my original promise that I wouldn't make a blog post if I didn't bring my camera, so here we are haha. Hope y'all have a great hump day tomorrow and keep on pushing forward even when life brings you waterfalls!
Man. Being back at work sucks. No time to just do cool shit all day every day. Anyone have a job that as 4-10s? So every weekend becomes a long weekend!
Jump on the bike and let the wind take you to where you need to be. Happy weekend y'all!
