John's 91 GFB

Postby alpinejd3 » Sun Jan 31, 2016 10:43 pm

I am relatively new to the site, posted up an introduction back in December after purchasing this bronco. I sold my 71 so that I could fund/focus on getting this 91 updated. I am very happy with the potential of this bronco, its a great foundation to build on for my fab ability and budget (little to no ability and limited budget :D ) Itwill take quite a bit of work to get it where I want, but should be a lot of fun along the way. My initial goals were paint, intercom/headsets, and dash. I put an intercom in and got it hooked up to the Kenwood 790, but I decided to hold off on paint until I put a new set of doors on, hopefully in February.

Here is the starting point:

After getting the intercom setup so we could have some music rocking I wanted the dash done next.

First round of dash work included:

Well A/C is not working at the moment, and I haven't found the vents I want. Any suggestions? I'm going to try and get the A/C fixed next week, then get vents and the GPS in.

That was a weak attempt at sarcasm on my part.

That's a great looking dash!

Thanks Tony. Hopefully I'll make some good progress between now and when the headlights are ready. That would be the perfect time to get it out for some night rides.

Haha, well it is a very valid point. I have been thinking about what to do on the passenger side. Glove gox, GPS, something to fill that space and then like you said it needs ac vents!!!

I was all fired up to make a plaster city run this weekend, got my mini kids seats in, but I am having some major motor issues. This happened once before when I first got the bronco, losing power, sputtering almost like its starving for fuel then kicks on and runs fine. Today when driving it home it was really bad. I don't think it's a fuel pump issue but I may start there. Was hoping to get through the season with this motor but I might just bite the bullet and address some issues at once.

Little kids booster seats mounted up. Friend of mine set this up and did a killer job. He mounted the kids seats onto a frame that bolts to the full size seat tabs so I can change for an adult trip. Too bad the kids won't be enjoying it this weekend.

Just a suggestion but check your cats. I had a similar issue a few years ago with mine. It would start losing power, sputtering and wouldn't idle. This would happen after running it hard, if I let it sit for an hour or so it would run fine. Again just throwing an idea out there.

Thanks for the idea but there are no cats on this bronco, they were removed by the previous owner.

Best way to do it! Works for when kids grow too. This is the way I had planned on setting up my supercab.
