Default scout-it-out '79 scout II

"nothin' finer than bed liner" quote from extreme 4x4. I've been wanting to paint the lower part of my Scout black for some time. When ian painted the roof on their Bob deuce it gave me the idea. I sanded the lower part with some 120 grit on a da sander, masked off the trim and rolled on the bedliner. I think it looks really good for the $20 it cost me! This is the before pic.

Years ago my Dad built some jerry can holders for his Scout. I decided to build some mounts on my Scout so I can use them. The first step was to drill a 1.5" hole in the top of the bumper. I also drilled a 5/8" hole in the bottom for a plug weld.

There's a 3x3" plate welded to the shaft for the jerry can holder to sit on, so it's not sitting on the weld.

The bolt hole in the holder is to keep it from turning when you don't want it to. There's no bolt in it in this pic.

I need to get the holders blasted and painted! They've been sitting in the back yard a while. I also need to build the mount for the other side.

I've been meaning to upgrade my alternator for a while now. I wanted a 12si but the parts store didn't have it. So they made me a deal on a 15si. I never heard of it but after some research it is most likely 78 amp. I think it's the same family as the 10 and 12si. Same plug and one post. So wiring was a no brain-er. I did run a 10ga wire directly to the battery so as not to overload the stock amp meter or related wiring. The case on the 15si is bigger than the 10. The only way I could get it in was to make an access panel. The adjusting bolt is larger, 3/8 vs the stock 5/16. A few min. With a die grinder made it work. The new alt. Works great! At idle with the ac and elec. Fan on, I'm at 14v. In drive I still have 13.5v:d

I've been working on fastening down things in the Scout. Here's my most recent solution for my jack.

Well, no sooner than I fasten the jack down, a tire separates on me and I have to use it! On my way home from an impromptu snow run and the steering wheel starts vibrating. Finally it got so bad I had to pull over. Sure enough the driver front had a big bump in it. I found a nice sam's club parking lot and put the spare on. Ups just brought my new cooper stt pros today:d:d
