He took that thing down to the frame and cleaned it all up. Cut off some 40 year old brackets that weren't being used, cleaned up some 40 year old dirt and rust, etc. Then he planned on either putting another Scout tub on or tubing the entire thing.

When he cut the old tub off, he realized just how heavy that thing was. Without the front clip, firewall or rear quarters, it still took both of us to lift it off the frame and onto the junk trailer.

Then he looked at the cost and time it would take to do a complete tube buggy and decided against that (he wants to drive againt already)

So, I offered him this CJ-7 tub I had that I was going to throw away. We hauled it over to his house and put it on the frame. It fit! Then we figured we'd throw in his old 6 point cage. It fit too!! (especially since he plans on extending the bed by about 12 inches so he can have more room for his gear and dogs).

First he wanted to clean up the frame, put on new cross members, clean up the tub bottom, weld in new sheet over the few rust holes, etc. So, yesterday was the day it was all mounted together.

Oh, you like that motor? Gonna put gerbiles in there from Richard Gere :D :flipoff2: :D :flipoff2: No that's a 307 block he carries around (yes pics it up and carries it around) to mock up where the engine goes and all. The real 350 is in his kitchen (no garage or shop ya know) almost ready to go in.

Anyway, the cool thing is he is going to do some tube more tube work anyway. He's going to tube the front so he can hang his Scout frenders, hood and grill up front along with some sheet metal work on the cowling to match up the tub and Scout front clip. He wanted to call it a Sceep, but remembered there's someone named Sceep online here :( Then he's gonna go with bright assed yellow with everything else black. It should be pretty damned cool when he's done.

Oh, that bastard. The IH gods will strike him down for that. It will never run due to the curse of the IH gods. At least put an LC or car body on it, but a heep :rolleyes:

Yeah it does suck. He's trying to move into a house/shop behind him that has a floor hoist and all. Until then it is just the plywood floor :D

He's considering going to coils in the front.

Yeah it was hard for him to make the decision, but what was free wins out when you're broke. :flipoff2:

Guess the cat is out of the bag :(

Sorry Scout guys, but John is right. I couldn't find a Scout tub for the same price I picked up the Jeep tub for. The cool thing is it will look more like a Scout though since I'm going to square off the cowling and put the Scout front clip on it. It's a hybrid-Scout, but it'll still be registered as a '63 Scout. :flipoff2:

Oh and look at it this way. I can go to any Jeep event or any Scout event I can afford :D :flipoff2: :D

Oh, and yes there are plenty of ******* areas in California like OK and KA

Damn he didn't even log off my puter first :flipoff2: :flipoff2:
