Did you just sand down the chrome till you got to raw plastic, sand it smooth, then shoot it flat black for the trim?

Truck turned out great.







Oh, and lets see some more pics of the other 2 trucks in the pics...

Seeing the pics of the smashed '89 makes me wann' hurl chunks EVERYWHERE. I would be as many different kinds of pissed there and them some if that happened. I wish I could find an IDI SuperCab 4x4 with an 8' bed, especially with the western red/white 2-tone scheme. That's what color Bruiser is. I would have been in a nut house after that wreck for killing the bitch and pleading insanity (and I could get away with the insanity plea easy...).

Looking good buddy, I love these old fords. You should look into doing some heavy sipping to those h1 tires. I ran a set on my 350 for a while and the siping really helped with snow driving...

Nice truck.

Bet ou;re glad you were't in a Focus or Escort when you got hit!

Why the spacers,?
Im lost on that one.

Couldnt find wheels that would fit?

The early bronco guys like the hummer wheels, they use F-250 axles and Hummer wheels to put the tires back under the fenders almost in the same spot as with the stock bronco axles.
