yeah, its a lot of work, for not a lot of gain, but Im cool with that. this thing is already going to be soo small compared to what I am used to. a 13" pinch just seems drastic.

a few additions, albeit they are coming slow.* i spent most of my time parting out the second scout.* have the stretch section on, just need to weld it.* ended up stretching it 8".* will stretch the rear wheels back 8" and the front 4 to 6", havent decided yet.* At this point, for time and money, will probably run radius arms front and chevy 63's rear till I can afford to link the back.



stretch in place.* im running some 1.5" angle iron under the bed rails for support



with the 41's as mock up.* obviously the body body/frame need to come up some


I thought really hard abut only stretching the body 6" to get the best departure angle possible, but wanted to have enuf room for all my camping and wheeling stuff


made the front* look a little different.* Did look like this


now it looks like this.* will get tube supports for the fenders and coilover mounts


still need t clean it up some.Im also gonna taper the front 6 to 10"



this is not at final height either


with the 41 again for mock up

Looks good, You can get back some departure angle by moving the fender flair. and the axle.

not much of an update. got some tub work finished for the stretch. next is the fenders. The PVC pipe is where the rear axle will go (8" back from stock). still have some grinding/smoothing to do, but its all but done.

how critical is an engine crossmember at the mounts themselves? Im contemplating using the mount/cradle like brandon used on his build, but already have some nice poly mounts for my current rig. As a result, i was considering just using mounts like the one from JBG

[img]http://broncograveyard.com/images/catalog/zoom/MOTSTANDS.JPG[img]

How do I import the picture?

here is just the link

http://broncograveyard.com/images/catalog/MOTSTANDS.JPG

would just a front xmember be enough, or should I tie these in together as well?

kind of lame, but...
I hung some skins on it, and rolled the 42's up next to it just because. Just looking for some motivation and direction really.



With some horrible paint skills, I smoothed out the fenders, cut them, and removed the rockers. The tan is obviously where the body will be, painted to fit over the original skins, so it should be a pretty close approximation.. The black represents nothing, or where the metal was removed. i plan to boatside up to the bottom of the door plates.

I see what you mean paint is tough on that pic.

I streched the front fender a few inches and ponited it down 6 degrees. Clean up the rear a bit, tried to put the boat side on and rasied the cage 6" LOL

Now after looking at that pic I should have just pointed the nose down a little less

Looks like a station wagon

If you are not concerned with having a top on it I'd make the cage tall like that. I built my cage to fit with the top on, but it makes for short headroom. If I was going to do it over I'd add at least two inches to my cage height.

plan is to put a top on it, I have the tops to make one longer wone, but we will see where I am at in a year or 4 when I get to that part.

Craig, I bow down to your paint skills.
