By the way, all my rear drum brake parts are new and the drums have been turned, if anyone is interested in the entire package including backing plates let me know. They are the 11"x 1-3/4" brakes. I May officially put them up for sell in the classifieds.
I will also be attending the rally next Saturday.

So up on post #34 I posted a picture of the front bumper I picked up to use on the project. Well I finally got around to getting it mounted and extended out to fit the width of the Scout.


I struggled with how to mount the bumper as the factory mount is a bit of a pain with having to get inside the frame to reach the nuts/bolts, and I wanted the bumper to be removable. On top of that someone had cut the hole through the frame to remove the bumper at some point. So here is what I came up with. I welded a piece of angle to the lower frame rail, then welded a piece of plate stock with a hole in it to the top frame rail. Through that hole I put a piece of tubing and welded 2"x2"x 1/4" plate with a 5/8 hole to each end. Then welded the tubing to the plate and angle. The 4x6 bumper tubing slides over these and a bolt runs all the way through.

Here you can see the 4x6 tube slipped over the attachments. The 4x6 was drilled top and bottom to accept a 5/8 grade 8 through bolt.

Here are some shots of the bumper. I still need to weld it up and deal with the stinger but all in all it worked pretty well. Rear bumper to come.

I don't know why but one thing I have been dreading for this project from the start has been a roll cage. Well I finally decided on a direction and ordered a kit. Ordered it on a Sunday and had it on Thursday. Checked everything out and all the dimensions were spot on. I was anxious to see how much trimming would have to be done.

I started with the main hoop and set it where I thought it should go. I got lucky because my first attempt turned out to be the right location.

Then went to work on the a pillar hoops and cross bar. It took me quite a while to get these set in the correct location. I don't have any way to test with the hard top so I spent a good portion of my time checking all the critical dimensions and making sure everything would fit . My biggest concern was the bend in the a pillar hoops as I have seen a build that the inner channel on the hard top hit. All the dimensions were right on.

Was then able to fit the back which was easy compared to the cab portion. I had to rig up the doors to stay in place as my hinges are garbage.

Well, I was very pleased with the fit and quality of this kit. If you can't fabricate your own or don't have funds to pay someone to do it this is a great compromise.
On to foot plates, frame tie in and welding.

Thanks, glad you like it. Nice to have all the work appreciated. You should start a build thread for your 800B project.

The cage is finished. It's taken a while to deal with seat belts, frame tie in bracing. Here's a few pics of the finished product. I'll go into detail on the shoulder belt install at all four seating locations in the future.



Here you can see the seat belt tabs front and rear for the shoulder belts. I also added some extra bracing that did not come with the cage kit. I May add a few gussets here and there in the future.

Got the seats all mounted this weekend. It took a bit of work but they fit nicely in the Scout. I ended up using the bestop seats that matched the rear seat as I found them for a good price.


Drivers side was pretty straight forward. Just some 2-1/2 x 1-1/2 steel tube as an adapter and to get the seat to a comfortable height. The sliders from the seats I had planned to use for the project bolted right to the bestop seats.

Built a bracket from tube and plate stock to support the passenger side seat.

I got started on the rear bumper this afternoon. Initially I was going to fabricate a simple tube bumper for the rear but after finishing the front I wanted a rear bumper to match. I also wanted a step bumper that could hold a licence plate and had a tow hitch.



I didn't want to spend a lot on the bumper so after some searching I came up with a plan that was fairly inexpensive and easy to build.
Found this pro comp bumper for a Jeep which (as with the front bumper) was to narrow for the Scout. So to get the width and create the step I bought a tow hitch that is made to bolt to a step bumper.

Welded 1/4" plate to three side to create the step, then cut and welded the bumper to the box.

Mocked up for fit.

Think I will add some gussets for a more integrated look. I am also going to add some support to the back side to strengthen it for towing. I will show that and frame connection on the next post.

It's been a while since the last update. Haven't really done much the last couple of months.I still have some work to do on the rear bumper and I will update that in the future.


I am at the point where I need to start wiring, so I have spent some time studying and thinking about things. A while back I picked up an American autowire 22 circuit harness. I went with this harness because I really liked the fact that the the wires are not permanently attached to the fuse block. I also wanted the flexibility to expand in the future without a bunch of excess wire coiled up under the dash. This seemed to be a good solution. However the fuse block itself is quite large, so finding a location in the cab was a struggle.

So here is what I came up with:
made an aluminum plate that bolted to the brake pedal bracket. This gave me a location to bolt the fuse block to that is out of the way yet accessible.

Fuse block mounted in place, tucked up out of the way and easily accessible. You can see how big the block is. Really wanted to keep it out of the engine bay and this location seems to work.

Great project! I have a 64 80 and a 68 800. I don't plan anything as advanced as this but I am picking up plenty of ideas. I look forward to seeing the finished truck.

Not much to update on the 800. Spring/summer is tough to find time to work on it. I did however pick up a family vacation pop up to tow behind the Scout. Have to make due with the work truck until Scout is running. The color matches the Scout interior colors.

Well the Scout is roadworthy. Took it out on the pavement for the first time the other day. Still haven't taken it to highway speed yet but it seems to tack ok on pavement. I will get some pics posted soon. Had some trouble getting the tci tranny controller to work but that seems to be corrected. I need to get the doors cleaned up and installed. I have a little rust on the bottom of the passenger side door. Trying to figure out how to repair it without replacing the whole thing. The rust is on the front corner so a simple patch is not going to be easy. Any input from you guys who have repaired this spot is welcome. Pictures coming.

So here is the door rust I need to repair. Luckily this is it for both doors. Not being a body sheet metal guy I have been able to deal with the rust as it was all flat parts with straight bends, no radius. Not quite sure how to deal with this. I don't have any spare doors to cut a patch out of. Suppose I could try to hunt some down if necessary. You guys have any ideas to repair this area without a patch from a spare door?

Its been quite a while since my last post for the project. The Scout has actually been roadworthy for some time and I have been driving it when I can. However, there has been a problem with it running to hot, not overheating, just to warm for comfort. I think I have finally gotten that straitened out but it took removing the electric fan and going to a clutch/fan unit with a shroud that required some fabrication. The transmission is also running hotter than it should so my next project will be to replace the cooler with a bigger higher quality cooler than the tube and fin unit it currently has.


Bumpers are finally painted and I am pleased with the finished product.



The Scout rides pretty good on the highway. Cruises nicely at 55. Still need to get the front end aligned and probably have the tires re balanced but overall it seems pretty good.
