    Not sure about the Vaseline but both are a petroleum based product. I did the emergency brake cable boot off my scout and it's like new? Supple, soft, and pliable. I think rubber has a lot of silicone in it and it's the silicone evaporates from the rubber; which, makes the rubber brittle. The rubber acts like a sponge and absorbs the silicone. I put one of them red straws on the can of silicone; then, put the parts in zip lock bag and closed it with straw in bag and sprayed. Not near has many fume's.

    Thanks Super, I went ahead and tried it. I had a can of silicone spray, sprayed the seals and put them in a garbage bag and tied it up. How long did you leave them in there?

    I left mine for a week or two, I think? Just keep an eye on them. I don't think it matters and it won't hurt anything?

    I did as you mentioned, and after even 1 day the seals are noticeably more supply and soft. They almost look and feel new. Great tip, thanks for sharing!!

    Over the holidays I thought I would try some home brew electroplating with zinc. I wanted to add some additional corrosion protection to some of the door/tailgate parts besides just paint. Keep in mind that most of these parts will be painted over anyways. It was more of a science experiment for me than anything, and only cost me about 30$. I did get some shadowing on some of the pieces and missed a few spots, but like i said, they will get painted afterwards. Overall, I am pretty pleased, although its a little more work than I thought. Here's some pics:
    This is one of the tailgate shoulder bolts that I wanted to keep. This was plated 2 times for about 5 minutes each time, then brushed with a brass wire brush afterwards. I plates all the tailgate hardware because those shoulder bolts are hard to find.

    This is one of the tailgate hinge pins, before/after. I decided not to polish these brackets

    Just a quick update. It's been a while since I've been able to work on the scout, although I have completed a few things. I finished up both doors including new hinges, sound insulation, painted inside doors, cleaned up window regulators, new track guides etc. Here's a vid of the sound insulation....this stuff is amazing.

    Also, got a chance to take her up in the mountains for a spin. She's running really good right now, and without the doors it's ever better. I just wish paint wasn't so expensive....

    Noico. I bought it off Amazon, it's reasonably priced and pretty easy to work with.

    Came out great!
    You know probably the quietest doors I've ever... not heard... were hanging in the garage. :beer:

    Well, I finally did it. Shipped off the scout this last weekend for paint, bedliner inside, a cage, new seatbelts and seats. Super pumped to get it back and just try to enjoy the process of someone else working on it....sort of a weird feeling to be honest. Anyways, I haven't been super active on here lately, but I've put about 300 miles on the scout in the last month or two, including 65-70mph on the freeways in LA without issues. So, check back occasionally as I'll start posting some photos as the shop progresses.
    Thanks!
    Jack

    Awesome Jack. I can't wait to see the results. Who's doing the work?

    Thanks Phil B. I sent it down to RSO Performance in Hemet CA. I think they specialize more in Landcruisers, but they do some great work from what I've seen. One of the reasons why I decided to take it there was because the owner, Mike, seemed pretty excited to do some work on an IH. I presume it's probably going to take them a while to complete the work, as they had a lot of trucks in their shop, but I'm generally a patient person :) Thanks for asking!

    Sorry if you said and I missed it, but do you have the dimensions of the bed floor? Maybe detailed pictures of the framework under it? Mine is completely gone and I can't afford a new tub, but I don't know where to start rebuilding it.

    No worries, unfortunately I dont have any pics from underneath, but see the sketch below. Keep in mind, this is not OEM. And will give you a "flat" bed to work with, as in you wont have the ridges in the bed.
    I used 2x2x1/8 angle for the bed sides - these sit on top of the channel that's already there.
    I used 3 strips of 3"x3/16", spaced evenly, running the length of the bed for support. This will sit on the cross members that are already there.
    1 sheet of 16GA steel for the bed, cut to 60" long and 37.75" wide. The total width is 38", but the .25" missing is from the angle on the sides.
    Hope this helps.

    Well I finally got some pics of the work that has been going on with my scout. Paint is nearly done, cage is done with the exception of paint. Still left to do is spray liner inside the cab and top, paint the top, put in the new seats and seatbelts, and all new weatherstripping. But it's coming along! I'm super excited, and am so happy to see some aesthetic things happening!
    Thanks for looking - Jack

    Thanks, I appreciate it! The top will remain white still. I'm debating whether or not I should do the SR2 Clone stripes minus the "SR2" lettering. I think the stripes look sweet.
