lots more bracing I just started the main frame thing. its basically gonna have a big x from the front to the rear on the top and from the center bar at the top down to the back bar and some other braces. it will be safe. well safer than my pickup was more triangles

thank you and thats why I'm buildin not something you see everyday. Well I didn't get that much done this week or weekend. had to get a tooth pulled on wed and went in to the dentist and the tooth didn't wanna come out. two of the roots fused together and they had to cut up into my gums to get it out so been kinda under the weather. Well saturday had to clean around the house some and do a little maintenance on the daily and clean the shop so I don't work all over or around everything. I did pick up this sweet roof rack tho. figured it follows with the vintage theme
By mudmainac3 at 2012-03-11 Then today I loaded a few buddy's up and we went up to the swap meet in Puyallup didn't really need anything but I had never been and you never know what you could run across. Well didn't get much but did get a sweet sticker. I had the same one on my pickup. its funny cause the trucks pink.
By mudmainac3 at 2012-03-11 Gonna try and get some work done this week. I feel like I slacked all last week and with the time change I can stay out longer and get stuff done

well been trying to get workin on the scout but been busy after work. I went and bought some fuel line so I can plumb the tank in and what not. I also just ordered my F1 stage 2 clutch so hopefully see that soon and thats one of my last major peices to order I beleive besides plate for my skid plate and my steering line adapter and some gears eventually
ha yeah best part was i welded thought " hmm i should go grab the sharpie off the kitchen table and let this cool a little then opened my scout door and wala sharpie on the floor then i forgot i just welded. and yeah they are rear drivelines and should have about 1.5'' of slip in and roughly 4" down so I think it will be fine. had less on my pickup cause I cut the splines on a stock driveline to make it fit and I never pulled one apart in the rear. Thank you kinda what I thought I started a build thread on Pirate when I first got the scout and they gave me a hard time about putting toy stuff in a scout cause most of them are hardcore scout guys
I also mounted up some reverse lights where the stock shocks would have mounted up. they fit pretty good. probably get messed up in deep snow or mud but we will see. not a very good cell phone pic but if you look close you can see them on the inside of the shocks
I also installed my rear third and axle shafts. I had a broken one in for a roller and since I broke the third in the gf 4runner didn't want her to talk me into putting it into her truck so I put it in mine haha.
