    Today I got the front and middle body mounts changed.
    I ran out of steam, but hope to finish the rear tomorrow.

    Awesome!!!!!!!!!!! I hope your rear mounts will be easier then what mine look like. I'm too lazy to see if you already posted the vitals of the bushings/mounts - always good to see what you purchase so I/others don't have to go through the learning curve :cornfused:.

    While I know left of zero about Travelalls, there was a really sweet looking one at the RMIHR (others have already posted pics in another thread). Is this what yours looks like?

    I haven´t done much other than drive the Scout lately.
    I did find one armrest on the internet, so I installed it.
    How´s that for progress? :)

    Sounds like you need to take another break so you don't overload yourself! :wrenching:

    I just came up for lunch after spending the past half hour crawling under Barb, specifically looking at the rear body mounts. May I ask how you plan on removing those four bolts (assuming you have not done so yet)? I'm leaning towards just cutting them off, even though I've sprayed them (PB Blaster) over the past year multiple times. They look pretty much permanently rusted together.

    I did 3 out of 4. One is messed up from the body damage that I'm still ignoring.
    That's how I was able to take a picture of the washer.
    Yep, just cut them off. I used a cut off wheel on the center bolt heads and a sawzall on the outers.
    Good luck with it!

    Long time, no update. As documented in "How do I fix this dent?" thread, I got the quarter panel decent enough to put the bumper back on. I still need to work with the metal some more, but for now it was a long time coming.
    I drive the Scout weekly and other than some engine ticking when warm, it's been pretty good.
    I still need to build my rear seat (I have the factory metal pieces) just need to do the rest of it.
    Here's the rear of it with a step bumper that I found about an hour away and got via some trading. This Scout originally came with a step bumper, so I was happy to find a good one. It came with the factory mounts and has never been bent. Someone added a receiver hitch to it, but I'm ok with it.
    I found a good driver side end cap from the Northwest and will install it in about 4 years. :)

    That bumper looks like a great find. Was that like number three?

    I can't remember now, but didn't you remove the quarter/end cap a while back? And get a replacement? That looks like the stock end cap. Either way, glad it's working out for you. And I don't think four years is too long.... so long as you keep at something IH!

    Somehow I missed your reply, I apologize.
    Yes, that is bumper 3.
    I had a quarter panel replacement, but I really wanted to keep the original metal if possible. I sold the replacement I had and those funds will be used to purchase more Scout stuff.

    Over the long weekend, I tore into the top end of my engine and found that I have a bad rocker shaft.
    I am waiting for my lifter removal tool to arrive so I can check them while I'm so close.
    Jeff Campbell has a good shaft on the way to me.
    My fingers are crossed that this will help with some of my excess engine noise that I've always complained about.

    It's been really hot and humid down here so it's slowed any real work, but I have managed to do a few things.

    Per Ed's post about mirrors, I found a replacement head for mine so I can actually see what's behind me.

    I also cleaned the locking hubs and installed new gaskets.
    Lastly, I put in a rear seat. It's not champagne correct, but for now it'll work just fine for our girls.

    Seat might not be the CS heat embossed version, but at least the arm rests are 80 and not 800 ones! But I don't see the seat belts for the gals :hammer:.

    And I see that your driving her around without the windshield? How cool (well, you know what I mean).

    Maybe you can make an early New Year's resolution: do something more frequently than every three months! Suck it up buddy, I work when it's snowing outside (albeit inside :flowers:).

    Fellow Binder Planet member @Cakayaq recently needed a flywheel inspection cover that I had. After visiting a site of his I read about how he´d found a RCS up in Alaska. He saved many parts from it including the dashpad. Lucky for me he was willing to sell it and ship it all the way from Bethel, AK. He is even planning on driving his 800 from Bethel, AK to Marion, VA in the summer of 2020. He was great to deal with and I wish him the best on his voyage.
    So, I now have a RCS dashpad for my champagne!
    It is faded and cracked, but I don´t care one bit. It will need a little TLC and paint, but I think it´s amazing that I actually found one.
    In preparation for one day installing it, I removed all the dash bolts, cleaned, and polished them. Before I put them back in I put some antiseize on all the threads.
    I thought of Scout2000 while making the IH bolts all shiny. I know he likes dressed up metal.
    Ed, good call on the rear seat armrests. I think the 80 style looks a lot better.

    I realized after I polished the screws that I wouldn´t be able to see how pretty they are after the dashpad is installed.
    Duh

    I'm nothing if not transparent. FWIW, as much as I have a SS fetish, I just really dislike dirty, rusted, corroded fasteners.

    And it's so faded that it looks like a Champagne dash pad!

    Ed, I thought the same thing.
    The "patina" fits right in.

    I have yet to decide if this is a "Congratulations", a cheap shot, or something in-between. :)

    Either way, I can speak authoritatively here, vinyl dye works wonders !
