Worked on cleaning up the transmission some more. Need to get a parts washer. Also put a little primer down in the passenger fender area.

Your work looks really good! Good to see you making progress, mine is going to be a long term build as well.
I was wondering if you were going to remove the round side windows? I've been eyeballing mine from time to time and I'm not sure if the rubber will survive. Or if there is anything that could be used to replace it. The carpet is faded so they will have to come out at some point. The rubber holds the glass and the trim panel and has a bead on the outside so it's a very specific piece.  :)
If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?

Thanks yes im keeping the portholes I like them. As for the center chrome trim that goes in the middle of the porthole gasket that can be found new for 70s Ford Broncos believe its the chrome windshield trim. Should be a reference on the site about it. As for the rubber who knows how long it will last? When I get to  that part im going to see if there might be some other rubber  gasket that could come close to replace it. Like the rear trunk gasket on the Wagon is the same for a 1999-2002/ 04? ford ranger extended cab.

OK cool thanks for the info! I'm keeping my windows for sure I'm just concerned about the rubber. I think they're going to have to come out at some point.
If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?

Did some more cleaning and then primed fender and coil spring cup area. Plan on just using black rustoleum paint for the cup area. And truck bed liner for the rest of the fender area.

looks like you have the dreaded rust out from the battery tray , very common , no one ever cleans this area when changing batterys , at least you can get at it with the fender off and weld in a new peice

Yes that's the plan when I get my welder. Battery  tray and the battery fender area are my first 2 repairs with the welder.

I would love to weld but don't have a welder yet. My plan was to leave the fender off and was only painting the area that i have done so far. I plan to use welding blankets to cover the area and suspension to protect it.
