It’s been a little crazy around here lately and the Bronco has had to sit idle since my last post. Between farm life kicking in to overdrive and having a kid about to graduate high school, my time has been spread. However, I did manage to devote a whole evening and finished the Y pipeContinue reading “Working out at the “Y” pipe”

Thought from the cab #2
Every day, and I mean every day, since 2008, I listen to podcasts. They keep me going every day, they’re always there, very entertaining and sometimes I even learn something. As far as Overlanding podcasts go, I’ve only found a few consistent ones. They are The Overland Podcast, All Things Overland Podcast and Highpoint OverlandContinue reading “Thought from the cab #2”
Hitting the pipe……..with a hammer.

But finally, a little progress was made and the headers are almost ready to bolt to the Y pipe. With any luck, I’ll be hanging a muffler thisContinue reading “Another exhausting evening”
A mini fab project.
Worked on the exhaust header fitment issues on and off all weekend and finally getting some where. But during a brainstorming break, I lost some focus and turned my attention to the transmission cover and how the shift boots didn’t fit and the holes would need to be adjusted. So here’s a bit of whatContinue reading “A mini fab project.”
2 Steps forward, one step back
Had a great Easter weekend with the family at my folks place in the mountains of northern Idaho. Looked over dads 1961 International Scout project while I was there. I’m excited for him to get it back on the road, its been parked for over 25 years. Then, once the Bronco is bucking again, weContinue reading “2 Steps forward, one step back”
