More work on the dash

I am using rivet nuts and cap head hex screws

these are great, for anyone doing a build I recommend you get the tool.

Much better then screwing everything together with sheet metal screws








You basically drill a hole and then set the rivet with this tool. It expands the back side behind the panel and allows you attach whatever you want

Yeah those are great. I use them all the time when road racing motorcycles. If you needed a bolt, drill a hole place the threadlet, a couple of squeezes and bam a brand new place for a bolt to screw into.

After taking off the tape, it became clear leaving the wings on was not going to be a good idea. I had planned to replaced these seals, however I have since learned they are impossible to find

so I got to cleaning them then soaking them in lexol.

I also polished the frames with mothers

Today I worked on the grill

sanded it down and coated the back with rust converter paint. Not sure if this stuff really works but it seemed better then nothing



Fixed a few little dents, this thing is in really good shape. I think this grill was only on the 71s and 72s




Hit it with a coat of sealer primer then painted it flat black. I debated on flat or gloss. I think this will tie in with the fender flares I plan to add later and is superscoutesq





Added the trim back

one of these pieces came off my Dad's old 72 which was too far gone to restore, happy to see some peices live on



I also started to wet sand the sealer coat on the body, went with 600 grit





It is looking pretty good, hope the paint lays down as well

Very nice build. Does this Scout have a lift on it and what size are your wheels/tires?

Looks really nice.

Thanks for the feedback.
