I have so many projects that the bumper has not made it out of the open box.

It will take some time because I want to mod it some to fit closer in, just enough room to fit my XP 9.5 Warn.

It will happen but when is another story.

Slow progress that is.
Can’t enough time in the day to get things done.

If today is sunny and the wife doesn’t have any projects for the tractor I will start taking the front valance and Fogs off.

This is bigger but not clearer and yes I know behind the grille needs black paint.; funny how you don’t notice something until someone points it out, thanks PC...

Got that bumper on yet fool? lol You shouldn't have to mod it to fit closer to the body. Mine rubs the painted piece that the grill snaps into as it came from C4x4.

Haven’t had the time, this no job thing is taking too much of the day for me and the garage is full of $hit so things need to work in…

I have a friend working on the bumper idea, I JUST want it to fit closer, I like the bumper look itself but it still sticks out a little too much. No biggy just time on my end.
Will post up when completed but that is another thing on the list to complete.

The To-Do List is too long now so I have to stop adding to it.

Made it up !
Early Ford Bronco Emblems, mounted to a piece of aluminum, then to the grille.

There are two type of inserts for the Early Bronco letters, one is solid like mine and the other is a reflective type might look better on some trucks but both are red in color.

The letters are available in chrome but not blk.

The RED is not bad, stands out just enough.

Mod’g the Radio Bezel thks to Buggman who started the project for me.

Removed all of the add ons, i.e. sw’s, ports, etc., smoothed it out and opened it up for a DD Nav Unit.

It is in the second coat of primer, Dupli-Color Filler Primer, and waiting on some other info to get the FX4 Silver Color as close as possible.



May do the Door Switch Panels lower half too (the electric ones that will be going in sometime in the future), not sure yet, Bezel first, then the area around the gauge cluster but not the whole panel; like the ones I am selling but it needs to match the new silver on the radio bezel, it all needs to match.

Got the Radio Bezel finished for now.

Here are two painted shots, first one is the 2nd finish coat and the second one is the finiahed product.
The color is good but until it gets in the vehicle I will not be able to tell for sure if it is close enough.

Dupi-Color, Silver Charcoal Metallic, it is a Ford Interior color.
It is the first time I have seen this type of paint from Dupli-Color.

Smaller can and it cost a little more.

I used the silver exterior paint by duplicolor on my gauges and it looks the same. looks pretty good, and yeah the can is small but since its a metallic you don't need to do many coats.

Manual T/C will take away one sw.

Four in the OHC, in place of the Digital Readout.



Three to six more can fit, if needed, where the Air Bag Sw and the Cubby is.


So that is ten and I don’t think I will use four little lone ten.

What is sw? I see it in all of your posts and can't figure out what the hell it is.
