1987 Ford Bronco Rebuild

I have a 1987 Frod Bronco, I've been using it as a snow plow for the last two winters. The body is in great shape except one quarter panel, rust through. The interior is in great shape too. The engine hasn't given me any trouble.

No one else seems to think it's worth doing anything to it, but I'd like to start to slowly rebuild it, and fix the one rust spot.

I pretty much unknowledgable about body work or engines, should I even start working on this truck? How much skill will I need? Can it be done a little at time?

If the rest of the truck is in good condition, it's worth fixing. As far as the rust, that is a typical for them to rust. I'm not a body man, but have done body work on my own cars. It is time consuming if you are not use to it, but can be done. The most important thing is to make sure to get rid of the rust and seal the inner liner so water can't get back into that area because it will bubble out again.

Take your time and do it when you can. It doesn't need to be done all at once.

Let me know if you have other questions.
