I was digging around in the cab cleaning it out and I found the original Bronco II emblems that for some reason were removed, so I want to repaint those.

I'm halfway tempted to re-do the original intent of the Eddie Bauer package it has and do a two-tone with tan trim on the bottom. Based on what I can tell from the paint it was originally a really dark gray charcoal color with tan trim on the bottom.

No real snow here, just some rain/freezing rain. Sucked because I was all geared up to do the door swap on the Bronco and couldn't. Sucks not having a garage

Did the Ranger door swap on the Bronco today (both sides):

Before:



After!



Obviously the stripes are gonna go, and everything will get painted once I do all my body work.

Super easy swap to do aside from getting the god damn door to actually line up right....that was probably 25 minutes of just fiddling with the hinges to get them just right.

Well i went and picked up my motorcycle from storage...gotta work on that and get it back on the road.
Nothing major, i think my headlight is burnt out so gotta replace that, drain the gas and get fresh stuff, run some seafoam in it, clean the air filters, change oil and filter, air up the tires and will have to get a new rear tire this summer too.

Once its all done it will get ridden more and the ranger will get parked, unless im towng the atvs or going to a ranger meet...lol
