Most of the truck is stock,but I replaced the factory wiring harness with a ron francis harness. The next thing I did was put in a electronic ignition,electric wipers,new motor mounts,gauges and poly gas
tanks.all chrome was replated,body was media blasted and painted dodge viper red,and replaced the rusted steel top with a k-line top.

Eric,
that is one super nice Scout!!!. Great job on the restoration.

I really like the wood dash accent and the replaced gauges. Thanks for joining us and letting us see your handy work.

Thats a screamin nice 800!! Happen to have any more photos of the rig that shows more of the k-line top? I have an 800B and id kinda like an alternative to the hard top. Excellent work, thanks for sharing!

Compared to my rig that thing is so clean a guy could eat off of it... I think ive eaten off of far dirtier things, ha hah. Again, awesome work... I was admiring it once again, nice dash.

Hi,

I want to thank yall for your great comments on the rig,it still
has some work to be done,I.e. Fixing the hot start issue with
a remote soleniod and the final door skins front and rear. And
sadly it's going up for sale soon,but it's been nice having her for
11 years. Maybe I will get a kb next!

Ahhh man, what a buzz kill!! Was hoping to see it in person some day. That is to bad you are parting with such a nice rig. You probably have a bunch in it and sadly it is tough to get it all out when you have to sell.
