Default Re: 1969 Scout 800a w/304

That's a really broad question. It might help you to break the rig down into the major systems, ie drive train, running gear, electrical, brakes, steering/suspension, body/trim. Triage each system or group separately and then attack one system at a time. Vehicle control is obviously a top priority. It needs to steer well and stop well. By "well", I mean at least as good as it did when it was new. So, for 1969 standards, we're not talking about awesome or excellent steering and stopping, just adequate or slightly above.
