I finally stopped being lazy and got some work done on the scout today, I also got a bunch of pictures taken that I will be posting up on monday evening. I got the new driverside rear interior panel done and welded into place, got the tire well cut out and ready to be split and re-welded in. I killed the last cutting disk I had cutting out the tire well which ended most of my work for the day but I spent some time cleaning up some of the welds to make it look a lil more pretty. I also snapped some pictures of how I installed the CB into it a while ago. By the end of my weekend (saturday-monday) I hope to get it all ready to get the bed liner into it next weekend. On my todo list is, finish splitting and re welding in the driver side tire well, getting the front seat mounted in properly, getting the rear seat remounted in, fixing the bowing in the body and cleaning up the welds... I should be able to get most if not all of it done.

While working I got a nice reminder of the importance of the annoying gaurd on the angle grinder when it took a lil nip from my finger. So a lil less video games and easier work on my hands for the next few days. I still hope to get most of my list done except maybe straightening out the body depending on how much force it will take. Pictures tomorrow.

Picture time

First of all here is the CB I installed in place of the stock AM radio


Now here is the work I did this weekend.

Here is how the side was when I got it




Here is how it was at the start of the weekend


Here is the patch panel I made


Here is the panel welded in


After that I cut out the tire well and fender




And here is how it is now. I ran out of welding gas so I was only able to tack in the metal around the bottom of the tire well.


I have maybe half an hour worth of welding to get it all welded in place. I should be getting a new tank of welding gas this weekend if I get paid on friday. After that all i need to do is clean up the welds, clean out all my tools and get the front bench mounted in fully and then I will bedline the interior. I should be able to put the bedliner in on next monday (my days off are sunday and monday)

Those are what I am going to do next, I think I might be able to get away with just replacing the bolts/poly on most and maybe reweld in one or two. Most are missing the actual poly bushing which is why I think/hope it is sagging down in the middle

My weekend is here again. Tomorrow I am gonna pick up a new tank of welding gas and finish up the tire well, cut and replace a lil rust on the passenger side. Make up some holders for my axe, machette, and Hi-Lift Jack. I am thinking about mounting them on the tailgate so when I have it opened I will have the tools layed out infront of me. Than on monday I will deal with all the body mounts, work on touching up the last few holes in the floor and interior. Fully mount the seat and do some prep work to put the bedliner in next Sunday.

Meh too late. I made it so they are easy to work around though. For the axe it is only has 4 studs welded to it and for the hi-lift it will have only 2 brackets with a stud inside of each. It will give me a lot of room in the middle and sides to work on. I know cause I was/am making the brackets on the tail gate with the axe in place and the hi-lift where it will be. I also did it this way because I am going to be making a roll cage which I have no idea where it will be so I didn't know which spots along the side would work out. I still have time to put the Hi-lift behind the driver sear I will put up pictures tomorrow when I don't feel so lazy. Also I got all the major rust fixed on the interior and I am debating if I should get a complete body bushing replacement kit or a 1" body lift...

It is a bumer the previous owner made. He put in a hitch receiver so you can have a winch for front and rear. It is stupid hot out here so I haven't gotten much work done on the brackets for the hi-lift done, I only got one done so far so the next couple should be easy to quickly rip-off. Right now it is 33 degrees here (at 8:30) I am thinking of trying to get a couple of brackets done after work tomorrow if it cools down a lil.

I got one of the brackets done for the hi-lift, now I need to figure out how to make one up for the bottom end. I also found out I can't get much done during my work week because I get home at 6 and I have to stop using power tools by 8 or I get the cops called on me for noise

Well I am back in town from my trip. only spent about 300 bucks over a month, got a pay check and maybe some vacation time. That means I have enough spare cash for a roll cage.
What kinda metal would you suggest? I am thinking 1.75" DOM but I am not sure on wall thickness
Also how many 20' lengths should I get? about 8?
