Rollin Marbles

Slapped a couple new fenders on and started in on molesting an EB grill on to my Bronco II. Check out those body lines !

Have to thank FearMe for this wonderful mod. From the moment I saw his, I knew what needed to be done. No more plastic shit to get broke from people rolling 36" SX's into my truck(EBSTEVE!). I get round headlights too!!!

This mod also frees up valuable engine compartment space because the headlights mount in the grill, versus the innerbody. The inner body can then be removed. I'll have to build a new rad support though.

It gives the BII's that Dear-in-the-headlights look



you should be able to fit a fat radiator in there now.

yeah, FearMe only lives a few miles from me. He did cut a few inches out of the middle of his. I'm not going to do that though. He also welded his grill to the fenders. With just a couple bolts, he can remove the front clip. I'm not going to weld mine to the fenders. I'm going to attempt to make it bolt on.

Now I need to dig up the rings that go around the headlights. EB shit is expensive!!

I've got a nice Griffin radiator, but it's leaning in toward the engine. Not quite enough room to hook up my on-board air which I miss dearly!

Once I rebuild the rad support I'll be able to stand the radiator up straight and hook up the on-board air!!!
