Default 1962 scout 80. Finally under way

Well people I figure ill start a thread and keep track of my build.

Just bought my CPT 80/800 lift and I couldn't be happier ..... And she needs it badly. As of now shes my daily and my leafs are so worn and flat that I keep blowing shocks and bouncing down the road each day just pains me. She drives great otherwise and there isn't one gas station , carwash, or parking lot someone doesn't yell out. Hey is that a Scout...... I still feel. Drive the oldest care daly in my town.....gotta love it....


I also ordered some new h4 headlights conversion witch will be nice. So many things to do. Well start here.

Thanks guys at IH america for being very knowledgeable and always being on point.

Merica!

Robert

here she sits just back from the wash rack

long live the Scout .

Well the lift is compleat. I am really happy she sits a lill taller ,I am very pleased. I cant wait to get her out on the trail. Its a night and day diffrecne from what it was. Nearly every old spring fell apart and all the shocks from the prevous owner were blown.......shakes head. Finaly gave the tlc. Went on pritty easy for a 50 year old truck.


Thanks IH only great kit

Heres the lights I bought. I plan to run 12volt back to the rear of the truck with a fuse block, each light has a switc. Ill connect the two lights to one switch and a switch on my dash pannel. @ 325lumez. Should work nicly for my cargo aera, I have two ideas. I May mount under the rim of the cargo aera or above on eather side of the hard top , ill attach the strip to some high streth velco this way ill eb abale to mount in hard and soft top with quick dissconnects. Should work out nice, more pics when I compleat

Stans headers a wile back were a great buy.

Msd and pertronix. Flame thower coils are a must. Great throttle responce for 53 years and a single barrle.
