2019 Week to Wheelin’ Vintage Bronco Build: Day 5—It Lives

Finishing touches and smokin' tires

It was Day 5 of Four Wheeler's Week to Wheelin', brought to you by Golden Star Classic Auto Parts (goldenstarauto.com), and we began the day with the finish in sight.

With only a few items to complete on the to-do list, we got busy with wrenches and wire strippers in hand. The Creels dressed up the Bronco's front by bolting up the LMC Truck (lmctruck.com) bumper to the front framerails, while Christian Hazel buttoned up the shift levers for the Advance Adapters (advanceadapters.com) Atlas transfer case. Though it was a bit unsettling placing the hole saw bit onto the Bronco's expertly painted body (thanks to Classic Truck Supply), someone had to do it—so Jason Scudellari punched into the panel and drilled out the fuel filler hole, adding access to the Bronco's fuel tank. Though some workers were found "testing" them earlier in the day, we officially bolted in the Bronco's Procar by SCAT (procarbyscat.com) seats. Lastly, the Bronco's hardtop was lifted up, lowered onto the body, and secured down, and we were almost ready.

Before we could have fun, we pored over every bolt, cable tie, and all twistable, screwable items to make sure we didn't leave anything, and then it was time to turn the key.

The Ford Performance (performanceparts.ford.com) Boss 302 came alive, and there were cheers as the Bronco's RPMs shot up. If you've followed previous Week to Wheelin' builds, then you know what's next—a demonstration of traction control (read: burnout).

We officially christened the Delium (TireGet.com) Terra Raider M/T tires, and the Bronco rode off into the sunset.
