just picked up a cheap set of 17s with some dry rotted 33s mounted. I needed them to move the super duty axles around, as they are heavy mofo's..lol
i sort of like the style of the wheel, probably going to get them powder coated gold, and add some 38 or 40 inch tires and be done with it.

Yesterday I dismounted the tires from the wheels and dropped them off to the powder coaters.

Then in the evening I removed the clutch and mounted the 454 to an engine stand. I got the 489 ready to transfer the parts needed from the 454 to it.



Tomorrow, the scout chassis, fenders, front end piece (core support?) and various parts are being dropped off for sand and media blasting.



Wheels should be ready to pick up in 14 or so days, might have the new 40s ready to mount to them by then..



All the barnes off road parts I ordered have arrived, so now once the chassis is blasted, it’s time to do some fabrication to get this chassis ready for powder coating. And final assembly.

Very nice! What suspension you planning links? Leafs?

I just got the Dana 60s for mine and need to find a good deal on a set of wheels.

I've added F150 rear leafs and GM 52 front leafs. I might have to switch to a 3-link in the front, hoping not, but will have to see once i get the pumpkin moved from pass over to driver drop.

Dropped off the chassis, and some sheet metal parts to be stripped.

It was 113 out today, so getting the leaf springs and steering gear box unbolted and then loading the chassis into the truck by myself was a warm one. The trick is to stay hydrated..

Anyways, a 15 mile drive down the street and dropped the parts off. I have lots of fabrication to do on the chassis, and 57 years of road grime, oil leaks and u joints slinging grease all around has made a bit of a mess to the frame. So much easier to weld on clean ‘fresh’ metal then dirty metal.

Got the old 454 onto the engine stand, and will be swapping over the accessories to the 489 in preparation for the completed chassis.

One day I will have the chassis powder coated, but not sure what color, and at what time, as I like to put my builds together, and drive them for a few thousand miles to work out the bugs. Then blow them all apart and finish paint and what not.

:)

Finally got time to finish up the scout stand and got the body off the lift. A few of the top bolts for the fuel tanks broke off, and I’ll have to reach up in there with some vice grips to get the nuts off. Then I can pull the fuel tanks out.

By the looks of the zero rust on this truck, literally zero rust, the fuel tanks I’m guessing will be in pretty good condition. I am not using them, so they will be for sale soon.

Since the scout has been a catch all for parts and what not for the last few years, it's time to drag the trash can over and empty the tub. It's currently slightly sad to look at.

The plan is to get the body off to the strippers to be blasted top and bottom. I plan on a ‘real’ name brand bedliner on the top surfaces, and a spray on like raptor on the bottom.

The battery or batteries will mount where the pass fuel tank was, with an access door on the inner fender well. I might do something similar on the driver’s side to have a small space that is able to place things, ie fix a flat, oil, coolant etc.

All the other parts, such as the chassis are still at the blasters, it’s only been 4 days, so I anticipate picking up those parts next week. Then I can start fabrication on the chassis. Still up in the air if I’m going to powder coat it, or just paint it.

Went out and removed the front section and the pedal assembly/hydro boost from the firewall.
I still need to pull the fuel tanks, and then it'll be ready to load the body on the trailer to send out for stripping...

got a few parts home from blasting.
If the weather stays nice, the body/tub will be next to get sent out to be stripped. If the weather turns, it'll wait another week.
when the tub come back, I plan on applying new seam sealer to the bottom, epoxy coating and then spraying 'raptor liner' over the epoxy. This way is is nice and sealed up from the weather.
From there I will work on the quarter panels to get the both somewhat straight.
This isn't a show car by any means, so it wont be 'straight' but the body will be pretty nice.
I ordered a new set of 13.5x40 tires, not sure how long it'll be before they show up.

Took advantage of this rainy weather and finished stripping the scout tub, and got it hauled over to be fully stripped to bare metal.

Planning on ‘raptor brand’ spray in bedliner on the bottom, and actual Inyati or Line-x in the interior areas for sound deadening and to add some thickness to the sheetmetal.

Got the body parts dropped off today. All looks pretty good, there are a few surprises of thick bondo in a few spots, but that is to be expected.
One small dime sized rust hole on the drivers side where the seat riser was spot welded. When I drilled the spot welds and removed the riser before being stripped, it looked as if it collected mud/leaves over the years, so there wasn't any real surprise the metal is'nt bad in that area....a small 2"x"2 patch panel will fix the rust hole.
The floor pan is pitted from rust and whatnot over the last 57 years. The metal is not compromised, so I'll probably just do a skim coat of filler and sand it all smooth before the tub goes to the Line-X place for a full interior coating of the bed-liner.
Over all, I'm pretty happy with the outcome, and from top to bottom I know what I have and am working with..

Frame was dropped off today as well and overall, it looks good for the age. The previous owners and I have done some modifications to it, and those will be corrected, plated, rebuilt, and or remodified. The new shock towers will be installed, and all the old tabs/brackets will be cut off and ground smooth.

Still up in the air of what color to powder coat the frame once the fabrication is completed. Black, semi-gloss or glass-black is so cliché… I’m thinking of something with more of a wow factor. Even though this build will be fully capable off road, it will spend most of the time on the road heading out to the weekend car shows and cruising around sucking up old dead dinosaur remains while I smile at the nearby Prius and Tesla drivers.

The wheels are being powder coated a gold color, maybe the chassis and other parts will get the same color..

The interior will be black, the body will be a darkish red, and the drivetrain might just go the same color as the wheels.
