Revell bronco off roader (UPDATED 9/12)

26 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Started back again yesterday I've used the sport doors from Olson bros. added a 2" body lift from fireball resins and have the 3.5" suspension lift coming. I went to fit the resin hood and found it to be warped and the Olsen bros. kindly replaced it so it's coming with the rear quarters that have the  large wheel openings and the bumpers I've bought lots from both these vendors and you can't ask for better stuff. Since I had some time I started cutting the stock hood out and put a teardrop scoop on it and kinda like it so I might just use it and save the resin hood for another bronco!

How difficult were the doors to install? I want some, but would like to know more about them, before I commit.

Hey Alan they were easy to do if you take your time and follow the directions you get with them it goes good! I'm waiting on the rear quarters they sell now there is a bunch of resin parts out there! I've bought from both the Olson bros. and fireball resins with great luck both awsome vendors with quality parts!

The fender flares that I recently got from Fireball Roberts are great, also the scripts are fantastic.  Great seller.

Also had great luck with parts from Owens bros.

Got a little more done today! I decided to go with the 390 from the ford fairlane kit so I built a tunnel ram with 2 Holley 4 barrels. Finished the hood and cut out rear wheel wells I got the resin rear fenders but since I already had the doors in place I decided to just cut them out. More updates but I'm still waiting on parts!

Hey tom I looked them up and here's the numbers of what I used FMR-107 five slot mags $6 and FMR-070 mud king tires $12 he has lots more than that I have about five or six different ones but chose these for this build but you can't go wrong with any of them. Also if you want one for a spare joseph will sell you the fifth ones and that makes it nice if you want to hang the spare on the back!!!
