Amazing job with your Scout, very motivating!
Not much of a technical question, but where did you pick up the bumpers?

Thank you for the compliments. I enjoy it a lot.

The front bumper is the original one that I re-welded the cracks on and had it restored. The rear I bought off of ebay and had straightened and restored.

I have 2-1/2" (supposedly) lift springs and about .75 from shackles (shackles 1-1/2 " longer). The tires are 32-10.50 (measured).
Thanks for the kind words.

She is a real beauty. Mine is in process and so close to being on the road it almost hurts. Hope mine is as nice as yours someday. (progress posted in reader rigs) I have read through most of your post here so I hope I don't repeat a question that was already asked but I noticed you had the LST for your Scout. Mine does not have one but you mentioned you got yours from whs. I went to the site but did not see any listed in the documents for download. Did you just contact them directly? Mine is struggling running rough with a timing issue. Can't seemed to get it timed because it is jumping all over, but that is post for another forum.

Not looking to hijack this thread but couldn't find a simple answer and being I love the stance of this truck hoping I can get a solid answer.

Stock 1968 Scout 800 w/ 266. I May wind up doing a small lift but for now stands just fine. Whats the suggestions on shocks...not looking for off roading or anything crazy. Just a good shock that can support possibly a small lift and 31" tires.

Thanks

Finally got time to start working on the Scout again. I found a NOS set of Champagne Series sun visors. I had the original ones but the outer covers were gone. I just had them recovered but they were never right.

A couple of pictures after installation. Buffed the 10 year old re-chromed catch brackets and screws.. I also installed a set of correct NOS end clips that I had stashed away.


Next is to remove the dash and repaint it the correct color.

Part of the fun for me is pecking away at the details.

Yeah, I did a bit of sprucing up yesterday. Took some chrome polish to the gauge rings. What a difference! Then some Amsoil MP to the carb body with a Q-tip. No more white rust. It dries to a film that doesn't attract dirt like oil does. A little here, a little there; it all adds up to keeping it all good.
