I managed to get the cruise control and the horn working last night, (clock spring in the steering column was bad)

I will pick up the final pieces of the lift on Saturday, so I hope to have new pictures next week.

The front axle portion is almost done. I have to put the new shocks on and reattach the pitman arm.
I have not started the back yet. Seems like it is taking longer then the last one that I did.

Well, the new owner of the Bronco has decided that he wants to go a different direction.
So, the Bronco is for sale for $4500.

After a very rough week in the paint booth, I was able to pull the Bronco out into the sun for a couple hours tonight. I have metal sag to fix in the paint, but here's what it looks like so far:

Time to say goodbye, the Build is officially over and the Bronco will be loaded on the trailer tomorrow to head East. Final destination,............the land of Pontiac. New owner seems to be happy.
