    All of my dog legs are good on this tub except the LT rear so I repaired it in 3 pieces.

    I got what I consider to be a lot done today. My wife gave me 5 full hours of uninterrupted time on the scout today. I spent all of it rebuilding the lower B pillar piece by piece. This was the most time consuming spot to repair on the whole tub in my opinion. Here are some pics I took along the way!

    Next step will be to repair front LT lower kick panel and LT center body mount (shelf mount) then weld in the floor and move to the RT side. I think the right side is in better shape.

    Figured I better replace the top plate on the LT rocker. The rest of it is solid.

    Got a little more done before I hung it up tonight. LT side is all done except for welding the floor in. I took the floors to a media blaster to take the rust scale off before I weld them in. Should have them back on Monday. I'm also not going to weld on new 1/4 panels till I have the body back on the frame so I'm not counting them yet when I say I'm done with the LT side. I'm gonna rotate the body 180* tomorrow and start on the RT side and then on to the cargo floor.

    We'll I got the tub turned around yesterday so I can start on the right side. This side is definitely in a little better shape should have it ready for the floor to be welded in by the end of the week.

    This was the PO's idea of rust repair. Cover it up and forget about it!
    1980 scout 62.JPG
    Got a lot done on it. Floor is cut out. Couple small rust spots to fix and that's it.

    Started doing the RT center body mount.
    1980 scout 65.JPG

    Incase any one is wondering my method for replacing this mount i will explain as best I can. The actual place where the body mount bushing sits is still good so I am only replacing from the mount hole outward. I mark a line on the original and cut a straight line from top to bottom with a sawzall. Then I take the new mount and put it behind the original using the body mount hole as a guide. I vise grip it in place and use the sawzall again to cut right next to the original cut. Then I just butt weld the two together. This is the easiest way I have found.

    Thanks Randy. I'm trying to be as detailed as possible so it may help someone else down the road. I know what you mean about trying to get back to working on a project. I have a 1966 Olds 442 on a rotisserie at work that I haven't got much done on over the last couple years. As soon as the scout is done I will get back on it though. Trying to have the scout back on the road by Memorial Day 2014.

    We'll I had to take a break to watch the Broncos/ Chargers game. Glad my Broncos won it was close. I did manage to finish welding in the center body mount and patch a couple small spots on the lower B pillar. Just gotta finish the front mount and passenger side will be ready for the floor to be welded in.

    Well pretty much got the right side done except welding the floor in. I did get the front floor pieces back from the media blaster too they look great. Started working on the rear cargo floor today. I drilled out all the spot welds for the fuel tank brace and laid the new floor over the top of the old floor so I can mark the weld locations for that brace as well as mark the rear seat holes and rear body mount holes. I found a 60"x 65" piece of 1/8" diamond plate at my local steel surplus yard. It is heavy as s*** if you know what I mean. I made a template and made the rear floor in one piece.

    Very nice work. You make everything look so clean. That floor should be bomb proof!
