Absolutely beautiful build! Wow!

okay,
how were you able to bolt the top on with the interior side panels between the cage and the top? I have a similar (nowhere near as nice) set-up, and I have my interior side panels painted black and looking great. But they won't slide in place after the top is put on, and I thought about putting the panels on and then setting the top in place, but I thought that I wouldn't be able to get to the top bolts that would then be behind the panels...
Fill me in please and thank you! Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

It's not easy. Usually we lay the panels over the cage and then drop the hardtop down. From there we bolt down the top and then fasten the side panels to the hardtop. This procedure is a little easier if the windows are removed from the hardtop first.

Aaahh... Gotchya. Thank you for that. I really appreciate your help! And to keep the thread on topic, and because it needs to be said again, ld's custom Scout II is just an incredible build! Thank you for what you do, it's very inspiring.

Did this rig end up with 35" toyo's. It looks like it but the 1st page states 37" gys. Just curious.

Thanks,

The original plan was for 37" goodyears but we ended up with 35" toyo's as I feel they are a better all around road tire.

Does that cage free float over the driver and passenger. I would like some protection there but have never liked the way the posts come down and get in the way of the headlights, glove box and passenger entry

I don't know about calling it free float but it does allow for more room for the passenger area. Ihc customs has a design using a thick flat bar that takes up little room. Or the other choice is to go with a typical cage, modify the glove box door and then add power windows so that there is no issues with opening/closiong the windows with the doors closed.

I was looking at how you put the fuel injection stuff under the cowl. Did you make some type of diverter plate to keep that stuff dry. On my 72 it seems like water would flow right in there when it rained.

I found some thick aluminum project boxes on ebay. After some cutting and grinding with the dremel tool they worked perfect for the ignition module, and relays. Sealed the boxes with silicon and good thermal tape, they are waterproof

Cool build. Great work as always.

I'm curious about the dimensions of the front shock hoops. What is the size and thickness of the tube that was used? And how tall were they made. I am currently working on trying to complete my SOA conversion on my 74 Scout, and I'm liken the hoops better. Shocks, along with mounting them, are one of the last few things to accomplish, in order to get it(my Scout) road worthy.

Also, what is the advantage of having dual shocks? Compared to just a single shock? Granted, I'm aware that every one builds thier rigs for thier own style. I'm just curious as to advantages and/or disadvantages

thanks

Seeing that this build was performed several years ago I do not recall exact dimensions and tube material used on it.

As for using dual shocks it is done for looks, handling or depending on the type of terrain for better performance from the suspension over sustained hi speed use over rough terrain.
