Indeed, the internal fuel hose is expensive. Which is why I too purchased as little as possible. I'm actually planning on an external fuel pump, along with efi down the road. I really didn't want to drop a tank full of fuel if the pump went bad. Been there done that - not fun at all. I welded in 1-1/4" square tubing in a few spots and used half clamps to hold the metal hard lines inside the tank.
Tubing on the right will be for fuel return. Tube on left goes down to center of tank bottom and connects to the walboro plumbing

I'm still working on the tank, which is why I currently temporarily laid one pair of walboros at the moment. What's hidden behind the baffle is another square piece of tubing with a half clamp near the t-fitting that's peeking through the hole at bottom of tank. At some point I plan on building my own tank out of thicker material, for my 73 beast

That looks freakin' awesome! now I want to tear mine apart! Nice craftsmanship!
I did think of going to that extent but then I realized that with the air tanks added + all of the plumbing for the air system and fuel system and finally the sway bar I had no real good space for the fuel pump. So, I decided the best place was inside the tank.
overall it worked out ok because it held everything in place. Still not my preferred plan but overall the best option.

Thanks for the complements. Wasn't trying for perfection but more for functionality. I thought you were doing just fine with your tank modification. I have run 2-1/2 gallon air tank under the bed close to the ledge under the rear bench seat. But I liked how you mounted yours just forward of the gas tank, which in a round about way, I'm copying if you don't mind. I do have a second air tank that I'm considering adding to my system. Which makes 5 gallons+.

These are some rather old pics. I haven't had time to update in a little while.
I pulled all of the wiring through the chassis, and man there are a lot. I did not get a pic of all of the wiring, I ended up also pulling enough wire for 2 stereo amps (speaker, power, signal, etc.) not shown here. That way if I decide to put amps in the back the wiring will be there, and being that it was fairly inexpensive to get all of that wiring off of an internet auction house I figured why not. The wires will always be in place if needed.
Here are a few pics, I included a few of the final termination points with the weather packs installed.

So, the exhaust has been on my mind for awhile. In the pics the exhaust looks closer then it really to the xmission lines. But never the less they were still a little closer then I wanted them to be. While there has been plans from the start to wrap the xmission lines I still felt that it was time to address the situation further.

So, I had a friend of mine that has built plenty of custom trucks (in fact he just got his 20year project done, here is a link: http://unserclosecustoms.com/index.php) come over and give my a direction to correct the problem. It was decided to build heat shields and ceramic coat the exhaust.
The hardest part of this was cutting up a perfectly good exhaust system. Here comes the wife with something to say about this!!!!

first thing first, all of the chassis needed to be covered for protection. I used some old fire resistant rags to help get the job done. Then came the cutting. I ended up cutting on the existing weld seams so that flanges May be added.

I used a flat magnet to hold the new flanges into place as I burned them in.

With all of the flanges tacked into place it was time to move to the heat shields!

With all of the welding finallized it was time to build the heat shields.
My exhaust was made with 2 1/2in pipe. So, I used some 3in pipe and split it in half to build my shields.

Then I test fitted the exhaust and marked where the shields would go.

After a quick turn-a-round of 3 days I got the pipes back. I think they turned out pretty good. Here are the pics of the final product hot out of the oven!

The xmission lines and brake line (on the chassis in the 3rd from last pic) will still be getting some thermal barrier applied to them. The 2 lines on top of the frame rail in the same pic mentioned are just air lines so no worries about heat with them.

Thanks, I really had to think about the possible heat issues partly because of your comments about it earlier. This was not a part of the project I wanted to deal with. I found it hard to cut up a perfectly good exhaust system. I took a good month to bring myself to do it. But, I knew that if I did not deal with it now it would be a pita to deal with it latter. So, thank you donner for pushing me in the right direction.

Darn punj,
stop making some of us look bad. Nice job.

Did you just weld a nut to the exhaust pipes for the machine screws that hold the heat shields? There is one picture that looks like that but hard to tell. Any chance you could post a pic?

Yes, that is exactly what I did. I tried 1 nut but the heat shield ended up being to close to the pipe. So, I threaded 2 nuts onto a bolt. I tacked them together, then welded both to the pipe. I could have just went to the hardware store and bought taller nuts, but the store is 20 miles from me. So less time spent doing it that way and I figured that no one will see them.
Here's a pic, dont pay attention to my flux core wire feed bubblegum welds! Lol

Also, if it was not for this forums and a few others this build would have never happen. I love the fact that I have been able to come here in the background for years to pick all the different ideas that has made it possible!

It has been quite a while since my last post. Work on the Scout has not stopped but has slowed down a little. My 12 year old daughter had to have scoliosis surgery to straighten her back out and we have been busy with that along with working ot to try to replenish some of the Scout funds.

I have managed to complete a few small projects in the past few months, mostly putting into place battery cables and vent hoses.

I wanted to place the bumpers and rocksliders on for a little mock up so I decided to snap a few pics. I figured I might as well throw them up on build just for fun.

Ok, first thing first the battery cables. This is the part of the build that it was time to think about what I wanted to do about space under the hood. I needed to have something planned before the body went back on or else I might be sorry. I knew that something needed to be done as I was putting the air compressor under the hood and I also needed to run a two battery system for the winch/ onboard welding/ etc.

I had try to think of options for the batteries and had no luck. After browsing on day through some of my favorite builds I came across the solution. I found it in one of IH Parts America build ups: “pd's drivetrain upgrade”. It was decided, the batteries would get located in front of the read tires. There is a nice cubby hole there that is perfect. I did a lot of measuring to make sure that the tire itself would not come in contact with the battery, also taking into consideration that the Scout will have a 2” body lift.

So off to the shop to make it happen.

First I grabbed a couple of tuffstuff battery trays that would accept the optima batteries that I would use. I used a piece of 2” angle iron that would become the holding bracket and welded it to the battery tray.

Put it into place and checked to make sure all looked good.

Then I did some final welds.

I didn’t like my crap flux core wire feed welds (I really need to get a better welder), so I whipped out the drill press and a hole saw.

I punched out new holes for two reasons: first, obviously for looks. Second, for access to the bolt heads that will hold the tray into place. Two holes will be drilled through the body mount bracket on the body itself, and then the battery tray will be held into place by bolts running through the holes.
