I also have had great results with POR. But do it exactly like the instructions say. Its for rusty metal. I know a couple guys that have used the stuff on new or sandblasted stuff. They figured if it works so well on red it will work beter on silver. WRONG.
Yank the body off the frame. Use the Metal Prep. Then roll it out in the rain for a week. I would also recomend using their top coat, even on the frame.

I love the 80 and can't wait to see it done. Back when I was still building Scouts instead of Rovers I was never able to find a 80/800 that wasn't totally rusted out (Virginia). I am jealous of the condition of the one you found.
Good luck with it

Looks like a good start..... I will have to plan a south bound trip to sac and see it on the trail when it's all done. I have a few buddys I could meet up with......maybe you could show me a trail or two??? Good Luck Josh

well tonight was my SECOND failed attempt to fit the motor in - it's tighter than the yota!!

Gotta pull it back out and remove the exhaust manifolds, possibly the power steering pump and try again..

If it were me, I'd cut out the old radiator mounts as well as the crossmember.

Fab a new crossmember further forward.

I know exactly squat about 80s or 800s, but it looks like a great start to a fun project. Good luck with your build, and it's nice to see another Scout with a Ford powerplant

Ditto...

That is what BEN W did on my new rig...you have the bay width, just those silly sheetmetal core supports in the way.

You will want to make a new core support anyway so that you will have more choices for radiators..

Cutting the cross member and moving it forward is just about standard procedure is those rigs.

Yup! Weld in the new crossmember first before cutting out the old one to keep the frame square.

I wish I could see more of what this guy did, doesn't look cut..



I was trying to wait on moving that crossmember till I had the steering all ready cause I just know I'm gonna move it twice..

doesn't look like you moved the support? I just dropped it in, had to remove all the front accessories and one manifold - I dunno, sure is tight! No way my headers are gonna work, gonna have to at the very least go back to some small cast manifolds.

Engine swap was 3/4 way done when I got it.

It was a major PIA getting the radiator & fan the way I liked it.
The mech fan sat too low & had less than 1/4" clearance with the crossmember (it was above it)

I was just saying, it will be less work in the end if you cut it off.

Do you have access to a bender?
Joel (Scout Dude) ben a really cool upside down U out of tube to mount his radiator & re-enforce the inner fenders.

looking at your steering box I don't see how I could move that support.. Guess the box could go on top of it?

The box could go closer to the engine/where the crossmember was removed.

Why not send the frame to be galvanized?

Never rust and looks cool

I guess I should call it project slow poke or maybe baby steps..

anyway, got the steel for the new front crossmember and cut off the old bumper (4 rusted solid bolts). I cut down the sides of the old rad support but not all the way through - I'll wait till the new crossmember is in for that.



Got a deal on the steal, caught em when they were closing so instead of $30 it was $20 cash

I'll use part of the excess to make part of the motor mounts (the part that extends out from the frame).

new front crossmember - this project is gonna win some record for slooooow pace! I just need to clean up the cuts so they are flush (cut off wheel and portaband aren't the most precise things)



my lil helper (#2)




debating what to do for the front perch, I dig the BTF buckets but $150 is pretty pricey when you can pick up jeep ones for $15 ea, still..



They drop 4" which is nice, I wouldn't have to fab up a hoaky drop bracket.

rear suspension hangers - I need to get some shackle end hangers (or make em, but I don't exactly have much time these days!)

I bought the buckets - cost nearly as much as both scouts combined LOL

These are next for purchases





I have fabricated pretty much everything for my last two rigs but because of time and the addition of two kids this one is getting more stuff bought and if I gotta buy it I'm gettin the good chit
