Hey guys I picked up a 85 bronco 2 last week for 1300$ had 60k miles one owner but sat for the last 14 years.
I have replaced the headliner installed new stereo with a dvd pop out screen
Replaced all the fluids in every single thing. Replaced all the electrical wires under the hood including plug wires , plugs , new thermostat, water pump, radiator thermostat hoses , heater core. Replaced the calipers had to rebuild the turn signal switch and next week do the throwout bearing and clutch but it's been a good project I was able to fix the rusted roof when I took the headliner out. Got that all patched up not I just have touch up paint and scratch fixing when it quits raining here in the pnw

My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Looks great. Welcome to TRS.

I dont have any pic of the roof rust, but when I pulled out the headliner and the foam shell it was all rusted in the front of the truck , I sanded all that down and sprayed it with rust converter , there is some rust on the outside front driver corner where the paint is lifting I'll be grinding that down and bondo when the rain stops so I can paint it to match. The headliner I went with is a stampede of horses that my kids picked out it's a little too much and mostpeople laugh at it but it beats the moldy fabric that was hanging down before and I'm rather good at doing headliners.

Welcome from another newbie. I have a '90 also in white. Where did you order the headliner materials? Your front looks like it's a bit high compared to mine. Best of luck on the project, I do like the blue stripes along the side and the horses!

I got my fabric from joanns fabric I use the fleece fabric because its thick and stretched well , and I use super 77 adhesive from napa because it's the only glue I have not had fail on me. It does seem like the front sits higher than the rear as well. As far as i know the suspension is all stock. I'm glad you like the headliner lok my wife does not
