Default I actually paid money for this?

Been lurking around for a long time figured it was time to join I'll warn you I'm not to computer savvy but have had a love for these old IH's since I was a kid riding around with my grandpa in his old farm truck, ive got a big project taking up what little time money and shop space I got right now but couldn't turn this new (to me) Scout down

Ok so at this point I had the suspention where I wanted it put in a new steering pump and drove it to work for a few days but a valueable lesson I learned from my very first Scout was that go figure these things are rusty! Guess I thought it would fix itself so I just ignored the issue and drove the tires off it till it literally folded in half, so not wanting to make the same mistake twice I wasted no time on this new turd to tear out the seat and floor mat and see what I could do, I was alittle shocked at a po fix for the lack of body mounts gotta hand it to him though it was alittleName:  scout front mounts 1.jpg

So I put in new body bushing wherever there was still a body mount left to do so then went to town with a cutting disc starting on the drivers side getting it all cut out and coming up with a plan to rebuild it with some stronger stuff from my local steel yard nothing that hasn't been done already a dozen times and covered in great detail on this site but ill still try to throw some pictures up along the way maybe somebody will find it useful

I made a new rocker outta 3x3 tubing if I had to do it again I woulda used some thicker steel but still twice as thick as original and plenty strong its hard to see in this picture but I replaced the center shelf mount with a piece of 1.5x 3 inch tubing as well it ties in nicely between the new rocker and back dogleg this was the best solution I could come up with sense there was nothing left of the original to salvage

Front floor mount in place not sure if it really needs it but I'm gonna add a gusset to the rocker just for a bit more strength
