Default Before and After of My Scout 80 CS

Well, to start I want to say hi and, that you guys have a great place here!! Some of the most knowledgable techies to. .

This Scout started as a gift to me in 2005 with 89000 original miles on it from the second owner (who also currently owns a 69 800/304/727 that I want 62000original miles plow rig in almost perfect condition.

Before I got it it had sat in a field at crowley lake for 15 years where it was regularly covered with 10 feet of snow.
I went through the entire drive train brakes and, engine during 2006 and drove it back up to mammoth that year. He( the po ) really got a bang out of it and was glad it went to some one who would make it nice and keep it. I rent a cabin on lake george in ml every year during June for a week.

So after enjoying it for late 06 and 07, I decided to make it look as good as I could for a return trip in 08 to ml. It was stripped to metal, the metal massaged back, primmed blocked primed again color sanded and painted in base -clear to the original champagne color. After refinishing all of the removable parts I put it back together and here it is.

It is a shame I didn't document the Scout whet I first got it. I guess it was enough to have been given it to think about the details.

Thanks for reading/looking ........ Robert
