Wow!!! What a build!!!!! Everything's top shelf!!!! Excellent work by you guys!!! It's inspiring me to get to work!!! I have a question: I don't see any kind of bracing in the door openings to maintain the dimension required. Everything I've read,seen and previously experienced, points to the necessity of bracing them before removing rockers, floors or quarters. Is there a trick you will share????

Patience and lots of it! We will at times brace openings(such as the rear tailgate opening when performing a quarter panel swap) but there is less of a worry on the door openings when the front inner/outer fenders, hood, etc are removed.

That makes sense!! Without that weight, I understand there's less chance of deformation. But - having learned the hard way back in the '90's, I didn't take any chance on mine moving!!! A rookie like me is better safe than sorry!!!!

Work has continued on Steve's Scout.



The multi-fuel tank filter has a built in pre-heater and heat exchanger that is plumbed to the secondary multi-fuel tank.



Hydroboost brake booster along with a PSC remote reservoir for the power steering has been installed.



The main wiring harness and fuse panel was installed as well.



Here is the grease car brand aluminum multi-fuel tank plumbed and ready for install.



For the filtering of the diesel fuel from the primary fuel tank a Raycor fuel filter, heater & primer all-in-one with water sensor was installed.



A standard but tried and true Powermaster battery isolator was installed to keep the Optima batteries properly charged.

The front bumper got a quick sanding and a fresh coat of paint.



Hard top #1 was brought in and set in place.



Wiring and plumbing of the various components has been on going.







As you can see it is a very busy engine compartment.







Many of the components to be installed are pre-assembled before installation is performed.



The AMA air conditioning system was installed under the dash.

Modern shoulder style seat belts were installed to the cage.



The controller for the grease car system was also installed off of the roll cage dash bar.



A closer look at the controller.



Darren assembled a custom three gauge pod for the mounting of a few extra gauges.



This switch controlled the diesel fuel filter primer/heater control.



Darren also fabricated a custom switch panel that mounted directly to the Tuffy center console.



A little closer look at the switch panel.

Thumbs up Re: Steve's Expedition Scout Traveler

This build inspired me to join the forum! The work is superb and deserves recognition. I love the attention to detail and the effort you put into all the major and minor components. Plus the color choice is enchanting.

To be blunt, could you tell me what a restoration job like this will run? I'm just trying to keep my rig (1980 Traveler w/304) alive right now, with all the body rust and asthmatic engine. I don't fully understand the magnitude of man hours to accomplish this caliber finished product.

And thanks for all the great documentation and photos. It helps me convince my fiancée it's still worth the blood, sweat, tears and money!

Welcome to the forum! Sorry, but for obvious reasons we can not divulge what our customers put into these projects, however I can tell you that there is well over 600 man hours into this build at this point not including paint and body.

Only if the owner decides to sell it which I doubt he will ever do. If you want it bad enough call us as we'll have no problem building another one just for you.

So...this is my Scout traveler, and I've thoroughly enjoyed working with Jeff and his crew at IH Parts America. Jeff's right, this Scout won't likely go up for sale anytime soon. But they can build you one of your own...cutomized to your wishes and spec'd to your needs. Call 'em, you won't be sorry.

Wow!, I am truly inspired!

I have my 79 traveler sitting since 1987 (yes, 1987) in my garage. I have also owned a 1978 terra, 1977 SSII, and have a 1977 4 banger with 196 / 3 speed stick. I pretty much have completely gone through the 4 banger from front to back and it's just a good paint job away from done. My baby (79) is in pieces in my garage and I want so badly to get it back on the road. So, this is my "this years resolution": it's back on the road running by end of summer, or it's gone.

Great read on your blue traveler, great ideas. I am inspired.
