Default Bob's Scout II - AKA "Bob's Mean Green Machine"

I've known Bob for well over 15 years who has lived less than 1 mile from our shop in Loomis. Bob's Scout is a 1972 with a 304 v8, t18 4speed transmission and Dana 44 axles. This Scout has been a long term project that started many years ago. I happen to have digital pictures dating back to 2004 when we rebuilt the 304 engine so I'd like to start the build from that point on.

After engine removal the Scout was loaded up and taken over to the local coin operated car wash for an engine bay degrease.





Some of the parts that went into this engine.



The pistons and rods all set to be installed.








This is how we like to seal the endcap on the sv engines.





With the accessories on the engine is ready to be installed.



And after install.

Late last summer Bob brought the Scout in as after over 30 years of owning the Scout it was time to make it nice looking once again. First thing done was the entire Scout was stripped of its interior and exterior parts.



With the interior stripped out all the rust is easily spotted in preparation for being repaired.













A old cb antenna hole was filled.



The left endcap was badly damaged so it was replaced with a new one from Scout light line.



The rear portion of the back floor was badly rusted out as well.

The floor and surrounding area was cut loose from the body.















With all the rusty areas cut out the body was ready to be rebuilt. The first part was the body mount.





Since the rust was deep into the main tunnel support Darren had to fabricate a new piece from scratch.











Several custom cut floor pieces had to be fabricated.

Some finished pics of the replaced front floor area.





Another spot on the body that had some rust was the quarter panel so a patch was installed.





The next few pictures outline the rust repair on the rear floor.

With all the body repairs done it was off to the painter.



And after a few short weeks the Scout was transformed into what I nick named "the mean green machine".



Brian from rock liner coatings gave the Scout a nice rubberized coating to the inside of the tub to help seal the metal and reduce interior noise.





With the coating applied the carpet kit was installed next along with the remaining interior pieces.











The hardtop had insulation glued to it's inside to further insulate the interior of the Scout and help reduce interior noise.

Once we had the Scout completed Bob took it over to the tire shop where some new wheels and tires were installed. Bob drove the Scout around for about the next month or so. I was a little busy at the time and didn't get a chance to take any pictures of the Scout all finished up but Bob knew that we would get together soon to take care of this. Shortly thereafter I could no longer get ahold of Bob. I feared the worst as Bob had been fighting pancreatic cancer for the past two years. A call in mid-January from a close friend of Bob's informed me that Bob was indeed in the hospital fighting complications from the cancer treatment. Sadly Bob passed away peacefully on February 6. I'm glad Bob was able to drive his dream Scout as he always talked about it for as long as I knew him. Bob - you will be missed.

Rest in peace trooper. Hate to hear of a loss like this but at least his pain has been taken away from him.
