71 800B
I bought this 800B for my wife. But then she gave it to me cause I gave up my other vehicles. It came with 44's front and rear. Chevy 305, 700r4, Dana 20. Body looked really straight but lots of things were hiding from sight.

Cute little baby. Too bad the rust worms had such a feast and too bad the po chose to cloak it rather than fix it. Looks like you're well on your way to righting that wrong.

Nice! I had a 64 80 that was a "lipstick on a pig" truck. It was purdy....till you looked real close. But I still drove the heck out of it and used it to gather firewood every summer. I'm pretty sure there is a big can of worms in my 63, I'm starting to do a lot of work on it and am finding interesting repairs......its just more welding! :ihih:

Re: 71 800B
Nice Scout, at least you don't have to start from the beginning. Looks like you already have some nice upgrades from the previous owner. Rust repair sucks. Don't get discouraged, keep at it and before you know it you'll be done. After I finished the rust repair on my 800 I had to take a break and recharge.

I am actually way further then this I quite using my phone to take pics and got a real camera to take them. The down fall to that is I haven't uploaded them yet. I'm to the point of sanding and body filler in areas.Attachment 28188
