figured id show some pictures of what i'm up against every floor support was completely rotten and not salvageable including the rear body mount spots so i cut a chunk outta the floor and braced it up so i could get everything square having a bottle jack on each side made it real easy to gewt everything where i wanted it [attach][attach]Name:  rear bracing.jpg

then i cut out the rear most crossmember and made a new one out of some 2.5x 2.5 tubing welded it in and took out my redneck bracing job, cut the rest of the floor out was super easy sense most was rusted out around the wheel wells Name:  rear floor cut out.jpg

probably wont post for a bit till i have something worth posting about have a lot of rust to patch on the wheel wells and such before i can drop the new floor in nothing to exciting just takes time, i'm also gonna be adding a little storage area between the interior panel and quarter panel in the rear passenger side enough to hold some tools, spare fishing tackle, first aid kit, shit like that

figured id throw a quick post in here so people don't think i abandoned this thing got all the little rust spots on the interior all patched up pretty much had to replace the bottom two inches around the whole thing then laid my main sheet of diamond plate in realized i measured and drilled my holes in the wrong places being a tight ass and to cheap to get another sheet of steel i'm just gonna make this one work but its nice to see some type of floor back here after weeks of rust repair, also got brave and busted out just about every metal shaping tool i own and got some shape back into the passenger quarter panel its at least not caved in anymore and i might give a stab at reusing it if for no other reason than to see if i can Name:  scout new floor.jpg

looking good! i'll take a stab at your swing out question. end caps on the scout are weak when compared to the fs bronco, which doesn't have end caps. on the bronco, the rear qp doesn't end in a straight line like the scout. its all the same piece that wraps around. plus, there is an inner qp reenforcing plate. there's more structural integrity that way. back in the day, my dad had a nice '80 bronco that was sporting 33 x 12.50's with a spare on the factory swing out. those were big tires in the 80's! he never experienced any issues from the swing away carrier while he had it, but i've read on fs bronco forums where some owners have seen damage over time, especially if the carrier swings out too far. the sii swing out is alright for stock size tires, but you start throwing more weight on there, eventually the end cap will begin to pull away from the qp on that side.

lets see whats gonna be my excuse i had another kid last summer, i got a promotion at work (more money always seems to mean more work), the motor in my 73 pickup died which turned into a huge drivetrain makeover, and the never ending home improvement projects, basically the scout got shoved out back and put on hold even robbed a few parts off it for other shit, but with warmer weather around the corner i ordered some new quarter panels and rolled her back in after a nice long break from this thing hopefully soon will be able to start showing some progress again
