Once a project has been completed I’ll add a ✔ next to it, then follow it up with any pictures I remember to take. I can answer any questions on specifics if anyone gets interested.

Thanks for looking, and I’m excited to see everyone else’s rig out in the wild. My bronco timeline is in my signature, but for some perspective on how long I waited. My wife got pregnant and had our baby girl all well within the build process, and I was still one of the first to receive this unicorn build.

Mostly for my own satisfaction, but if the items I come across can help in your journey it’s a win win! Once a project has been completed I’ll add a ✔ next to it, then follow it up with detailed guides of how each modification was handled. Including images.

I'm also looking forward to seeing your customization! I admit to special curiosity about how you're handling the headliner project. I've been thinking about my own ideas but not coming up with options I like/can handle myself well.

Looking great. Any idea how your going to mount your iPad Pro? It’s a heavy device, I am looking forward to your solution.

That headliner is cool. Did you glue it? Did you notice any difference in cabin noise?

Working on either a magnet scenario, or simply making a custom mount with the existing trim piece. This has gotten lower and lower on my priority list, but I’m still sorting through ideas and have yet to scrap it totally.

Here I used fabric adhesive and it seemed to hold well. Obviously have not tested long term exposure to hot and cold , but I think I’m going to go the route of developing actual panels that will just adhere using hook and loop fastener so they can be interchangeable with multiple designs.

How did you do the Ford emblem? How difficult was it to remove and reapply?

Getting it off with trim pry tools and back on with 3M automotive adhesive was easy enough. Getting it apart without breaking stuff was more difficult, though I imagine it is only because I didn’t have the proper tools. Eventually I was able to break all the plastic welds holding the logo together. Though I bet a Dremmel would have made easy work of them.

Feels like we are riding on a unicorn. I have every constraint you can come up with, but still had her by first of Oct 21. Got so lucky, and am so happy I waited for what I truly wanted.

Nice to see that.

We have a Badlands in Cactus Grey coming too shipped and waiting on the next transport.
