Shitcan the windshield.......
If it were me , when I cut the links to sleeve them I would cut them closer to one end. Whichever end takes less abuse...For me it would be towards the axle end.....
This is an interesting build, keep us up to date.

That would have been a good idea. Too late now for both sets of links. I chopped the lowers right in half to. Oh well. Im really not worried about them. I guess if I bend them, I will have to replace them down the line.


I want to run EVO heims all around on this beater one day to. Maybe when I hit the lottery I will replace the links and heims.

Nice. Are you happy with the black box? I'm trying to figure out if I should go the 203/205 route, or klune/205.

The Black box is awesome. I dont know if its much better than a doubler setup but at the time.....I was running a Ford trans and a Chevy 60 front axle so it was the easiest way to get the transfer case on the right side for me.

If it wasnt for that, I would have just went 203/205 but I have no complaints

Sweet progress Cheston. I love you scout the way it was (top 5 alltime), but I'm sure it's gonna look slick and be more badass than it was

Thats for sure Buck! It got up to 30 yesterday so.......
FINALLY got to do a little bit to the Scout.

Bad news is I dont know if I like it.

Bent a little tube.



I love how it looks from the front. The main thing Im not liking is the length of the hood. I moved it forward a bit to leave some room for misc. fluid coolers in front of the motor. It looked fine until I put the tube up there. It will still have a negative approach angle with the winch but I dont know. Maybe when I get more tubes on there for the fenders it wont look so long




Here is a crappy pic of the radiator and fan Im going to be running. The radiator is a monster. Its out of a NASCAR so I should be able to go fass an turn leff really good. The fan is a Lincoln Mark VIII and is supposed to make the Taurus fan look like a chump. We'll see

Ive had the taurus and Mk8 fans side by side. By looking at them the motors are the same physical size, and the blades look alike but the Mk 8 is an inch or 2 bigger in diameter. I don't know if it will throw that much more air. Years ago I happened by Muscle Motors in N Carolina. They must have had 5k sq ft of used nascar stuff for sale. Literally dozens of radiators, some of them were over 4 inches thick. The fins were really close together and I was told that they worked great at high speeds, but at lower speeds they didn't get a lot of air through them. Best of luck with it, but you might want to try and keep as much room around it as possible in case you need to swap it out or use another fan.

The tube work looks sweet! I like your idea for the rest of it. are you going to cover it or leave it open?

Edit: No windshield is the way I would go.....

the plan is to skin inside the cage. Front and back. Basically just like the gray panels in the second photochop

I would really like to do aluminum panels but that will add up the $$$ in a hurry

Little progress today

Got the winch mount in. I decided rather than move the grille in for a better approach angle to just move the winch back





I took my driveline in to be lengthened. They didnt want to do it and tried to sell me a whole new shaft. I dont have money for that right now so I did the lengthening myself with a piece of 2" tube. Should work fine for now





My plasma cutter parts were supposed to be delivered today. They didnt show

Great "Re-build" Cheston! I'm lookin forward to seeing what the next phase of your Scout will come out looking like. You've always kept your truck looking nice but as always, nice things don't last (at least with me anyway)! Subscribed!

Thanks Sean! Im still pretty excited about this. I hope it looks ok but I think its going to be 10 times more stable and capable than it was. And it wasnt a slouch before.


Im loading it up tonight and Im going to haul it to SkippedLink's shop tomorrow. He has the week off and we are going to try to bust the rest of the fab out and get the motor running. The goal is to wheel a trail before I come home next monday. Fingers are crossed.

So all I will have to do after that is cosmetic stuff, tin work, and paint. It should be ready for Easter no problems. But like I said.....fingers are crossed.

Also, I will take a bunch of pics out there but I wont have internet access so it wont be until next week that I can post them. It going to be nice to be working inside a shop! Im really excited for a change of scenery

Got back Monday night late. I just went out and unloaded the Scout and snapped a few pics before it started raining on me.

Enjoy!

Here is how the fuel cell and radiator are sitting behind the back seat. And the blinging trans lines going into the oil cooler on the radiator



Here is the coolant tube up to the motor. Its 1.5 exhaust tube and all of it is bent into position. I love how it snakes behind the PS pump!

I was planning on having to re locate the orbital but with the header mods...it made room to leave it where it was. Just burned out a new mount for it

Here is the bulkhead for the cooling lines. It bolts to the frame. Put a couple petcocks in there for drains to!


Found a perfect radiator hose at napa to snake around the distributer


I bought this K&N filter thinking it would bolt right up to the throttle body which would have looked way clean. Ford decided to change sizes of the tubes in the last couple inches so that didnt work. I trimmed the stock tubes and came up with this. I might make something better somday....might not.
