Thanks, will do

plug ugly, something that might help you with your spring placement, I read a thread about setting shackle angle (there were a few posts by trkklr77 IIRC) and using the measurements of the flat spring when figuring out spring/shackle placement.

Here's what I did: I dropped a plumb bob from the frame where I wanted the axle centerline to be, then measured forward the same amount as the center pin to the center of the eye (26" for 52" Chevy springs) and tacked my front spring hangers on. With the springs bolted up to the axle, lowerd the weight down on the springs with a block of wood on each side to make sure the spring eye would clear the frame. I bolted up the shackle and set the shackle angle at ride height to see where I needed to mount the hanger. Double checked to make sure everything was square and even. I still had to mess with my shackle angle a bit before I got it where I wanted it bit it seemed to work pretty well. HTH

All right...time for some updates!!!

I made it home from Iraq at the beginning of October and after some relaxation I got to work on the Scout. Once again, I'll be getting transferred again soon and I have to get the Scout street-worthy, registered and insured so the Army will ship it to Hawaii.

First, I redid both sides of the floor with .125" diamond tread floorplate and built some seat brackets with some 1.25"x.080" square tube:

Once I had my floors fixed up, I could get to work on my mini boatsides. The mini boatsides are 2x2x.188 angle, 1x2x.080 rect tube, and 3"x.188" strap/flat stock. There are 20 bolts in each one (eight 3/8" bolts countersunk along the bottom, and twelve 3/8" bolts along the top edge with nut plates inside) the mini boatsides took care of my rusty rocker panels, protect the stock side gas tanks, give me some protection and a little more clearance under the doors/rocker panel. I will be trimming the fenders and clean up the edges.

I've got the 19 gal F250 tank, but I'm keeping the saddle tanks becasue I'm thinking about using the saddle tanks as a reserve, or for waste veggie oil and/or bio diesel and use the Ford tank selector valve to switch back and forth.

Hey Guidolyons, Welcome back and good to see you are back on the build. that is a good idea on the fuel tanks. A clean out and start up mode.

Welcome back/thanks for you service.

Make sure you get most of the stuff you need before you go to Hawaii.
My buddy just moved back & he said life there was grand, as long as you didn't need anything from the mainland....

Welcome back GL. Can't wait to see what you got planned.

Hope you racked up the hours while deployed, I hear they're hard to come by in HI.

welcome back quido.

just a thought, but what about putting 1/4 or 3/8 flat stock between the bolt heads, to prevent a rock from snagging and tearing a bolt head.

I like the exposed bolts, but if it's a problem, I could always use some button head allen head bolts.

Happy Thanksgiving
The Scout is on the way to Hawaii. I had it dropped off in Dallas yesterday, it gets shipped to San Diego, then on a boat to Hawaii.


After a serious wrench-a-thon I got it put back together and registered.

After fabricating, installing and removing so many parts to make sure everything was going to fit together correctly it feels good to be on the home stretch of "final" assembly. Over the last three weeks, I fabricated a new dash (I'll post pics of that later), installed the rollbar and seatbelt mounts, installed the XRC10 winch, fabbed up emergency brake system, pulled the top off, and sprayed Al's DIY bedliner on the tub.

http://www.alsliner.com/index.php

The Al's Liner is some pretty cool stuff. It's a 3 part polyurethane bedliner that you mix and spray on. I'm sure it's too thick in some places and too thin in others, but for a rookie bedliner sprayer-on-er I think it came out pretty damn good. I used 2 gallons.

I wanted to sink the winch down behind the bumper, but I'm running out of time to get it done, so I just stuck it up top, looks pretty good so it will probably stay there. I added some blingin' stainless hood louvers too ( la Rick Westra)

Next up: ARB locker, and reinstall the dash and finish some electrical wiring for the turn signals and speedometer.

The Scout is registered and about 90-95% complete and ready to be my daily driver. I I finished up some wiring and got turn signals and running/parking lights hooked up.

My brake light switch seems to have shit the bed. It's a hydraulic switch plumbed in just off the master cylinder. I can get the brake lights on with a jumper wire, but the switch isn't working. I got a replacement, but with the limited tools I have since the movers came and packed up all I couldn't get the old switch off. I think I'm going to have to re-do some brake line plumbing to get my brake lights fixed once I get my Scout and tools back in the same place.

I have to pass inspection to get it from the dock once it arrives in Hawaii, so I'll rig up a momentary switch on the pedal to get past the inspection (I hope).

Here's some pics of the dash, I still have to finish up a little finish work around the edges and install the rest of my gauges (pyro, boost, oil pressure, and water temp) but it's mostly done. I built a frame from 1.25 x.083 and 1" x .063 square tubing and bent the aluminum diamond tread around it. I did the long break along the top edge with my sheet metal brake, and the rest I beat into submission with a 3lb deadblow hammer. There's about 60 screws holding the diamond tread skin on the frame.

I also got the ARB installed in the rear. I still need to plumb the compressor and airlines.

Nothing to do now but find a place to live that's Scout friendly, and wait for my junk to arrive.
