This project,
when it came to us it was a 1971 800B, 304, BW11, Dana 30 front and 44 rear. It has custom Alcan lift springs and 33x9.5 BFG All terrain tires.

The plan is to do a complete body off restoration. Powder coated frame and everything blasted in and out, primed, sealed and painted the original white color. The engine is a built 345 with balanced crank, flat top pistons bored .030 over, mid range cam.4 barrel carb. The transmission will be a built TF727 auto hooked to a Dana 300 T.C. Scout II axles. The Scout is being built with a purpose, the owner is an avid hunter and will be using the Scout for his hunting adventures many miles into the back country.
The pics are of the first two days in the tear down stage of the restoration. taking apart all the parts and pieces we will be reusing and start to tear apart the front sheet metal, doors, top, hood, cross support for radiator and the the 304 engine.

Re: Project Mule Crazy 800B

Took the Scout on the trailer to a local car wash and pressure washed all the nooks and crannies. Getting everything ready to take the body off the frame and then to the media blaster along with the frame. before we take the frame we will weld the new front hangers on for the Scout II axles, no need to do this in the rear because we can cut the perches out to the 800 frame width. the reason we can't just move the front is because of the cast perch on the front 44. Here are some pics of it on the trailer going to the car wash and a few more of the tear down.

Re: Project Mule Crazy 800B

some more pics. Before we take the body off we will also setup the Scout II p.s box on the frame and make the needed modifications to the frame and body, I will post pics of that going together. All the rust spots will be replaced with new metal.

Re: Project Mule Crazy 800B

Here are some pics of the steering box conversion, we used the plasma cutter to cut the old mount off then put a new mount for the Scout II box.

Re: Project Mule Crazy 800B

We are also using a plasma to blow out the spot welds on the rear quarters for removal.

Re: Project Mule Crazy 800B

looks like the new plasma is working great. probably saved you tons of time on those spot welds.

Here are a few pics of the body getting ready to be removed from the chassis. and a few of the door braces to keep the body from folding in half, this is also a great place to pick up the body from.

What suspension plans are you going to do with this one?

The plans for the suspension is to keep the custom Alcan springs and 5" shackles. The shocks were maxed out when I got it, so some 12" or 10" travel shocks will be in the works. Also i moved the rear shackle hangers forward about an inch to cure the rear shackle inversion. I moved the front axle forward an inch to clear more room for the 33" tires. Built some spring hangers so they slide off rocks instead of off the frame. Very simple suspension on this project, I wish he would call and change to links:yes: I will update this thread with some pics of the frame being prepped for the blaster and powder coater.
