I would love to see all your IH vehicles. How about we post them here? I' ll go first. It's not much yet but it will be soon. I hope to be driving it by the end of 2009.

Here is my '77 back in 1998. Just had the lift and tires installed but still had rusty tub.

Here it is in it's last drivable configuration in 2004:

And how it sits now, more or less:

I picked the picture that showed it wearing its pimp 17" shoes just for Paul :D. It is a little tall, hopefully it will settle a bit or I will have to play with some springs a little to get it down an inch or two, specficially in the rear.

Plan is to have it done by late summer so I can go to Nationals in Ohio in September. Having a goal will hopefully keep me focused and I will finally be able to get it done, at least this iteration anyway.

Here is my other Scout, a '67 with the ellusive fold down windshield. Lots of rust and completely non-op but I have major plans for it, just have to finish JPEater first.

Man, you guys need some paint jobs
I need to show you the correct $50 paint job LOL
I'm going to Tractor Supply and buy me a gallon of IH Red
Put that in the HVLP and go to town

If you guys get the prep done I'll shoot em for you
Kirk has a baby blue scout he says that his truck is making a statement
"Yes, I'm a male, but I'm not that tough"
Baby Blue looks pretty good though, I had a friend in college that had a nice one
76Texas or whatever's truck looks real nice in that light color
What color are you going to paint yours Dirk?

I'm serious about shooting them
Maybe JP will let us set up a little spray booth or two to jack those out
I'm going to shoot my bedliner with a drywall gun and then throw it away
I must have 4 or 5 decent ones in the shop

We should do a weekend with bedliner and a weekend painting
I think I'd rather do the paint first, but I guess it doesn't matter, you need to tape off anyway
I'm shooting bedliner in one and putting diamond plate on the bed in another
We'll see which one takes the punishment better
My votes on the aluminum

I am sure there are some good painters here, I am a car painter myself and i would be willing to help do bodywork, paint, whatever you guys need done also.

Gonna start taking the "bad metal" off my rear deck this weekend. Gonna go with the small angle iron border and Aluminum diamond plate for new rear deck like we had briefly talked about last Saturday. Questions I have are as follows; I'm gonna stick with the POR-15 on undercarriage, as I have done all along, but do you all recommend any particular weldable primer for the carbon steel angle supports? Also, Paul, did you bolt your diamond plate in, then run sealant around the periphery or what. I hadn't thought of this before our discussion, but by the time I pay shipping, I'd have had $400 in the NOS deckplate, and that could buy my fuel tank, sending unit, hooks & straps, (know what I mean?).
Anyway, I know several of you have been down this road before and I would appreciate any recommendations you may want to throw my way. I'm gonna start toying around with a little Hobart 110 mig unit this weekend as well and will post pics if things go well.:wrenching:

By the way,...Baby Blue is how I bought it, charcoal gray to metallic light blue is where it's going, with black bumpers and bushwhacker flares. All in good time. Count me in on the paint booth weekend. Would love to learn from the pros. Will especially need tips when it comes time to block, sand & get my door & hood gaps evened out, and which primer I should go with. Greg was talking about DP-40, but I've heard that's pricey and doesn't come in a spray can, (LOL).

Adam said he uses a PPG product also for the primer
Just say no to the spray can lol
As far as the diamond plate goes, you can use the 3M panel adhesive
I forgot the number, its like 4100 or 5100
You don't have to use it on the top, you use it between the panels
On the top you could run seam sealer
You can use sheet metal screws, but I think I'm just going to lay it in and weigh it down along the seams with scrap metal or parts until it dries

Dont listen to Paul,, he has issues we all would take years to understand ha ha. Definetly use a paint gun to primer, you will be much happier, it'll take you forever to prime the whole scout with a can and will never be even, lots of runs, but if you use a paint gun with a good primer and reducer it will turn out way better and way faster. Remember with a paint gun you can control your flow and pattern, spray can......not so much.

I was planning on tearing the old rusty deck out completely, but now you got me wondering if I would be compromising the structural fortitude of the tub by going back with merely aluminum diamond plate. Dirk, you're the Engineer amongst us. What's your take on this? My deck plate is only seriously non-existent along the fender wells and by the tailgate. Should I remove all rust, prime and sandwich for the strength, or "gut the pig", :cornfused:?

Sully,

I started a new thread for paint and body work discussions and posted some of my quick thoughts there. Take a look and let me know if it helps.

Dirk, The stance on Jeepeater is really stout! How did you overcome the typical "scout sag" in the rear? I noticed that most sag like mine, but J/E looks "jacked-up". Was this the "custom-order" springs you had mentioned or have you added on since then? Also a little more info on the "pimped-out" wheels & skins. :punk:

Saggy rear?

Dirk, The stance on Jeepeater is really stout! How did you overcome the typical "scout sag" in the rear? I noticed that most sag like mine, but J/E looks "jacked-up". Was this the "custom-order" springs you had mentioned or have you added on since then? Also a little more info on the "pimped-out" wheels & skins. :punk:

As you can see from the first picture, I too had the saggy rear syndrome at one time. Through some minor surgery, a little bit of lifting and spring repositioning my rear now sits nice and high and is the envy of many Scout owners :tt2:.

Right now according to one of the main body lines down the side of the Scout, running about door handle height, it sits about 2 1/2" high in the rear. Although I like the look that is a little too much for me, so I need to level it out about an inch or so. The reason it sits higher right now is that in the rear I did a spring over with stock springs and used Ruff Stuff Specialty anti-axle wrap style spring pads that add another inch or so compared to the original spring under pads. I still have to put in the rear seat, finish the rear bumper, build a tire carrier and a 35" spare to mount up that will all add weight to the rear and bring it down some. On the front I have the original Alcan Spring lift springs (thanks for letting me keep them for mock up Holt) in a spring under now but will probably move up to a little taller spring to get everything dialed in where I want it.

As for the wheels and tires, while I liked the sleeper look of the black rims I wanted a little more flash and dazzle. Off came the 33 X 12.5 X 15 ProComp mud terrains on 15 X 8 Rockcrawler steel rims and on went the fancy 35 X 12.5 X 17 BFG new style mud terrains and 17 X 9 ProComp aluminum rims. I like the look as to me it helps tie together all the custom work and compliments the go fast shiney bits under the hood.

Hey Dirk,
Fill up a big aluminum box in the rear like BillUSN1, that will drop your rear end (that's highly sought after and admired) down an inch or so
Check out Bill's thread for being prepared
Dude was definitely a Boy Scout LOL

Also, if you haven't already, read through Bill's threads on EFI, he wrote the book on budget IH
