Pulled the rear axle today and ground off all the grime and rust. There was a solid 2" of some sort of tar/grease/mud mixture on the underside of the pumpkin. Needless to say I'm glad that's all done. Put a couple coats of primer on and am now adding 3 coats of the eastwood extreme chassis satin black. Shot a coat of black on the new drums as well. Hope to get to the bearings, brakes, retainer plate, brake lines, and new fluid this weekend. Here's a couple pics of before and after.

Before:





After:











And a couple coats on the drums to prevent rusting:

It can be both. For the frame I brushed it on. I have since started using the cans for smaller parts and the axles. I've been pretty impressed with the stuff. We'll see how it holds up.

Got the old bearings off and new bearings pressed on over the weekend. They're timken set 10 with national seals. Axles in and all new brake hardware on. Thicker CPT retainer plates and everything is put back together except for the diff cover. Axles and rear diff looked to be in great shape.
Old bearings, seals, and retainer plates:

Put in some Energy Suspension poly shackle bushings. I forgot to do this when I swapped in the new springs and decided since the rear end was out now was the most opportune time. Using a ball joint press made getting the old rubber bushings out very easy. Also pulled out the rear driveshaft to clean up, paint, and replace the u joints. Here are some pics.







Driveshaft all cleaned up and painted






Here's a pic of one of the spacers that I put back on the passenger side. After the suspension settled I needed them to level the truck out. I will be putting one back on the front as well. I measured them at 1/4" for those wondering.

Diff sealed up and driveshaft installed. Went to put on the rear brake line extension and had to cut off the old line because it had rusted solid. I will need to re-flare the line now. Once I get the rear brake lines re-installed the brakes are all ready to go. Will need to fill the system and bleed. Puts me very close to being able to get this thing on the street.

got the new IH only 5" shackles installed along with the new poly shackle bushings. The shackles along with the addition of the spacers has made the truck perfectly level. The old shackles were in pretty rough shape. The bolt holes had elongated by almost 1/4" in some spots.

Rear shackles

got the rear brake lines installed after having to re-flare the main rear brake line. If you're wondering if you should attempt this yourself then read this thread I started. Some very helpful thought processes in here.

also got the front fenders installed and it's the first time I've seen the truck this way in about 1 1/2 years. You can get a good feel for the final stance. The suspension will settle a bit but for what I was going for I'm very pleased. I plan on driving this thing for awhile before I pull the body apart and do a major overhaul on the bodywork.

Finally some more progress. Got some bad news from my landlord a couple weeks ago letting me know that his son will be moving in to the house we live in. Finding a rental house in the peninsula is hard enough let alone one with a garage big enough to house the Scout and all its pieces. After weeks of searching we found one though. Needless to say it was time to start sanding and painting as many heavy and large parts as possible and getting them back on the truck. Was able to get the roll bar in, hitch (not even sure if I will keep it or not), hood hinges, and front sway bar taken care of. I also decided that the rear flare I did just wasn't sitting well with me and decided to rip out the entire rear brake line and just bend a new one. Here are a couple progress pics.

Roll bar from different angles:

it is a very tight fit on the speakers and if I were to do it over again I would have pushed the speaker back so they are not covered by the roll bar. There was already a hole there from before so this was where they were going. Being covered by the bar does make them impossible to steal though.









Hitch: will I keep it? Not sure. We'll see if I like it after a rear fabbed bumper is installed.





Hood hinges: boring but progress nonetheless





Front swaybar:

If you need help with redoing the flares for the brake lines, let me know. I'll be in my man cave all weekend.

Too bad about the need of moving. Sucks when you're in the middle of the build like this. I hope I don't get into that situation any time soon. I currently have 5 non running projects pluss, all me tools and equipment to move. Not fun.

Let me know if ya need help

Bummer about the move. I can't believe I beat you on the road! I have been driving the 80 for a week without the bumpers, but they are done today. Wish I was out there to help you. Good luck with everything!

At my new place and a rat has decided to ruin all my hard work. He has chewed through all my amp wires, a spark plug wire, and a couple dash gauge wires. Needless to say I'm extremely distraught and angry. Money cost is a couple hundred. Time to fix these issues is about 10 hours. Grrrrrrrrr.
