I have a couple of choke points before I can put in my supports for my floor pan.

(1) The picture below shows the front passenger side. Note the rust hold the front of that rail. Recommendations on how to handle? Cut out and weld in a patch? Will it hold while I do that?

(2) Regarding body mounting and the not-to-code steel “tab” that comes in front the right to the frame support for the body. I presume that should be replaced with something more substantial? It’s correct on the driver side.

(3) Any recommendations for a good example of a partial replacement of a center cab mount (left)? I’m missing section up to about an inch from the body bushing. Yikes.

Thanks in advance,
Dave

Patch the rust holes then purchase new pieces for the cab mounts front and back would be the easiest way. Any dealer would have those parts you need. Goole search "scout body panels" brings up all the big ones.

(1) Cut out the cancer and patch

(2) Your looking for whats called a 'wedge mount' (and probably the cab mount too) if your going for the original style. https://www.superscoutspecialists.com/scout-ii-front-body-cab-mount-wedge-kit-right . Some people do custom mounts that are a little less prone to rust

(3) For a good reference on all things body read through this (wedge mount shown on page 4) https://www.binderplanet.com/forums/index.php?threads/1977-scout-ii-body-rebuild.139946/page-4 Don't let Jim's quality work discourage you, he's an exceptional fabricator.

Brace your doors before you cut too much off.

Once you start cutting things apart and looking at build threads you'll be able to understand all the patch panels and pieces that are sold by SSS or IH Parts.
