Thanks Vinny.

Decided to remove the rear driveshaft making it fwd only,based on real life - years ago my mini died and so called the RAC out so he came in a 109''Landie and it was fwd only..

Been doing a forth road bridge on the jib...

Starting on the Bronco and first impressions are that it is a very nice kit,travelled in one while I was in Iceland btw.
Image

The hood vents are nicely open.
Image

While the tailgate has Ford in mirror writing to represent a steel pressing!
Image

The firewall bottom actually joins with the tub ( always a letdown!..)
Image

Got the interior mostly together,more shortly.

Makes a change for the spare or cover to be the same size as the tyre...

First of all here is the GMC screen,a nice stress fracture from the corner!

The ( very nice ) chassis is complete and ready for paint.
