I do see one item that is kind of a hot button thing for me, as I deal with federal land use issues on a daily basis. You have what appear to be glass packs in the exhaust. Them critters are way illegal on federal ground as they are not considered a spark arrester. Not sure what you have for back there for parks or seashores, just wanted to warn you...other than that, I am seriously impressed with how your rig is going

And that my friends is a very condensed version of the work done, and brings us up to the current date. Next we start with the dreaded body jam alignments and block sanding.

Hi dave.

Oh that exhaust system has long since been trashed. I'll be installing a new system front to back. Likely magnaflows, no glass packs. (I'd never make state inspection here with that setup)

Yeah, in theory we can't deviate from stock here on exhaust, but...you mentioned upgrades, and if you don't mind, I'll suggest one we did on my son's '74. We tossed the stock axles and put a waggy 44 in front, and an izuzu rodeo/honda passport 44 in the rear. Got him more "modern" stuff, and 4 wheel disc brakes and 6 lug bolt pattern. Used the stock master cylinder, and that thing will stop. Cost less than a rear disc kit, too:d

Hi dave,

interesting. I'm going to get her up on her stock legs initially, but I'll have to look into that. That along with fuel injection would be a good off-season project.

The thing with the waggy is it's a true 44. You have a 30 in yours, and they don't like to be leaned on. Learned that 35 years ago on my first Scout II. Also will need to change to 1/2" wheel studs all around so you don't have metric in the rear. We'll be doing this to mine once I get over the shock of a motor swap
