    Don't pull the tub,put a hole in the side of the hump,I always do it.Use a holesaw and you can get a plug to fit the hole.One day you will be glad you did if you ever want to pull the tcase in the future,or pull the tranny.

    I'll do that if I ever have to do it again. Was only a couple tugs on the chain fall and it was up high enough.

    Here's the front view.

    Going to have to make a couple plates for the forward feet. And figure something out for the rear too..

    Oh and going to need a new garage door....

    The roll bar is 48" above the floor, which is pretty much the same as the stock bar.

    I have like 1/8" clearance on 32s...


    Ugh.

    35s can't happen until that happens.

    Got to work on the seats. Swapped the GM seat belt latches over to Jeep latches that bolt to the seats. Bolted one seat to the passenger seat base.

    Sits a bit too high for my liking. Think I'll cut about 3" out of the bottom of the seat bases in order to get the seats where I want them. The bottoms of the bases are scabby and rotten anyhow so I'll make a new ring for the bottom out of 1" angle and then either bolt it to the bases or weld it too them. Then I'll tack the bolts to the base ring so I don't have to cut access holes in the base to try and reach in.

    Other than that they are comfortable.

    Once I finalize seat position I can get the roll bar roughed in. I think I might have to try and bend the main hoop bars outwards about 2 to 4 inch too in order to have clearance for the seats to roll back all the way. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Well it's - 4*F (-20 C) and my shop is tooo freaking cold. Ran out of propane so I quit out in the shop for now. But did manage to get both seats mocked up and got both seat bases cut down. Also made a pattern to make some new rings to weld to the bases to bolt to the floor.

    Not sure if I'll make them out of 1.5" 1/8th flat bar or cut them out of 1/8th plate.

    Doing this brings my seats to the height I want them and saves these ol seat bases from the scrap pile. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Made two of these out of 1/8th plate. Will weld them then grind them flush around the edges to match the base. [​IMG]

    Finished up my seat bases! Bolted both in to the scout both work great. I pushed them out a bit further to the outside but still good position for the fuel pedal. The passenger side will fold forward enough for a kid to jump in the back.

    I'm 100% thinking some sort of side step needs to be made.

    Also thinking of putting a piece of tube in here for a bit of extra support for body flex etc. [​IMG]

    Nicely done Sir! I have an extra set of Volvo seats with power everything including power butt wipe! They just might end up in one of my Scouts someday!

The Beast looks similar to the drivable project I picked up a month ago. the previous owner named, now my, 79’ traveler “the Beast” also. Thought about changing it and still might but I believe in karma, and have no right to interfere. Looking forward to reading this whole post in more detail and learning a lot, a lot. I don’t have plans for shows, more for tooling around town with the family and getting off-road when we can. 35x12.75 on a 2.5”over axle lift. Not exactly what I was originally looking for but it’s been 2 years of looking and this wasn’t priced crazy.

    You’re resto looks very detailed and I greatly appreciate Your details In advance!

    Thank you

    Your traveler looks boss man! Rock it like it is and make them kids happy!

    I appreciate the words of kindness!

    I've been rocking on this big time in the last few weeks. Got my roll bar prepped up today. Need to get some 1/4 plate for front mounts and some 2.250 120 wall tube for the back mounts to extend them bout 2" and once that's done I'm going to bed line the interior.

    Also thinking I'm going to run the front bars across the roll bar too the windshield like the jeep did.

    I think you're "rocking" cuz of the propane fumes your heater is putting out! I just prefer :beer: !

    That’s super clean, nice. Appreciate the words. I’ll start a thread of my own but I’ll be referring to yours I’m sure.

    Well got tons done today! Completed the mock up and welding on the roll bar! Also got my heater box all finished. Had to cut two up to make one.

    Next jobs are prime and paint the heater box and bed line the roll bar!

    Also next up is to clean up and prep the interior for paint or Bedliner!

    So pumped guys!

    Very nice! Did you strip the heater boxes or sand them? They look clean as hell.

    Also curious if you’ve looked at the different liners out there vs paint? The previous owner of mine used a cheap liner many years ago I’m sure and it’s half gone. There are so many available at this point. Wondering what your learning towards or anyone else’s feedback. Thanks!
