Got a great 60 gallon compressor buried in the garage there. Used it to fill these little gems so I could get the Scout in the garage for awhile.

Here's some final pictures of the build up.

Some final pictures of the power window installation.






And just some random pictures of the Scout.













Here's a link to a video that I took while driving up the freeway. This was one of the first trips out with the Scout so the fuel injection wasn't fully dialed in yet.

This is the most impressive buildup I have ever seen. The quality of work is amazing. Nice job.

Paul was back in California for a little r&r. After a trip to the Sierra Fall Rallye the Scout was left with us for some more upgrades.



To start the upgrades was a new roof rack. Darren started out by cutting the four corners out of a rusty donor hardtop.



These pieces were then welded to the underside of the four corners of the hardtop.





1 1/4" tube was bent and mounting plates welded on to secure the new roof rack to the Scout's hardtop.





The rack was slightly modified in order to make it readily removable.



Darren fabricated these simple yet effective saddle mounts that will retain the rack to the 1 1/4" tube.



With the roof rack mounts complete the parts were shuffled off to the painter and powdercoater for treatment. Next up was a fresh set of corbeau bucket seats. Darren stripped out the interior and began fabricating mounts to the cage.

With the main platform made the mock up of the seats begin.



The drivers seat mounts are fabricated first. With a roll cage in the Scout we can use string to hang the seat in the desired position.



The first piece of mount is bent and checked.



A tuffy box is also going in for additional electrical components.



With the driver seat set the passenger seat can then be mocked into position.



The seat mounts that Darren fabricated leave a bunch of room for additional storage.





Darren test fitting a piece of bent tube for the passenger seat.

Jeff, awesome build! Us shadetree mechanics/fabricators can only imagine the amounts of dinero it would take to pay someone with your abilities to do this, and do it so cleanly. One question though, are there plans in paul's future for larger tires? The current tires just look so puny with all that room? Nicest Scout II I have ever seen, by far!

The Scout is set up to run 37" tires but since the current 35's had plently of rubber left on them paul decided to run these until they wear out.

Just out of curiosity, how much math is involved with the front missing link arrangement? Looks pretty much like a radius arm on one side and a regular link on the other. Pretty simple and straight forward. It doesn't look like you angled in the lower link brackets, they appear to be inline/ square with the frame. Is that the case, and do the lower links follow parallel with the frame (top view)? Also, how many degrees of did you move the upper link on the pass side over from the lower link? Does this link follow the same angle as the drive shaft? How's your caster? Is there quite a bit of change from when it is at rest versus compressed at full bump? Purpose of why it is not parallel (viewed from the top) with the lower link? Matter of convenience locating it and mounting to the axle? Would using polyurethane joints at the axle connections and rod ends/ flex joints at the frame be a better choice for something more on the road than not? A four link would be nice up front, but as we've talked about before, not a whole bunch of room if you want to keep lift height low. Thanks for the help. Very nice truck, if I was working in CA I'd have to sign over my paychecks to you Jeff! Probably good that I'm in ne with the people of the corn....... Very cool.
