    No snake skins, but at least 4 sets of burned points in the glove box.

    Very nice.

    is this something that you would recommend? Or is it as big of a PITA as the external one is?

    I think the interior spare carrier is awful.

    And one more. What's up with this "kin" stuff that shows up every now and then?

    One day I think I´d like to paint the wheels that arctic white color along with the front bumper.
    I looked at the LST and couldn´t tell what color the wheels were originally.
    Does anyone know how to decode the wheel paint code?

    If you are talking about Scout 80, wheels were always black. Bumpers were silver gray, front and rear.

    I had to get a new tube for the military Scout. I took a picture of one of it's tires next to the Travelall's 31x10.50 tire.
    I sure do like tall and skinny tires.
    If they made a new one like this with a whitewall, I'd be set. [​IMG]

    I found this blue on the inside of the wheel.
    It matches what is on the spare.[​IMG]

    When you talk about different topics that happen to spark someone's mind while reading your original thread, It's called "drift". So, Thread drifting is quite normal. Similar to looking at something on E Bay or on Google and you see something else and off you go. I find it amusing and informative. each person sees something different in your picture. You mentioned rodents and off we go.

    If you look up under the dash to where paint is hard to apply, what color is it? Or under hinges that have never been removed?

    15 or 16 inch wheels?

    16" wheels.

    I'll check a hard to paint part.

    I don't mind the drift at all.

    215 85 R 16's are close to the old M&S dimensions. I like them the best for snow tires on Willys Jeeps. The NDT or NDCC 16's are fine until you get to ice or hard packed snow. Then it's a wild and scary time.

    Today I pulled the valve cover for paint and pre-oiling preparation.

    I also broke the glove box latch. I seem to be really good at that. So, I'm looking for one if anyone has a spare one to sell.

    While in the back of the scout I saw this decal on the area for the second fuel tank. I didn't have the right tools with me to open it, but I plan to find out what's inside.

    I also bought some points and plugs.

    Is this passenger seat special?
    I've never seen one that adjusts vertically. Or is the cover just off and that's how they all are?

    That seat is correct for early 80,its curved plywood,its not an adjustment,it lets you pull the back straight up and then tilt forward.I have one in my basement now working on recovering.And that small door was also factory,tool box instead of a second tank.

    Gotcha.
    I knew about the door, but took the picture to show the first aid symbol on it.
    Thanks

    That would make it even worse to get at the top starter bolt. I've seen access holes made through the firewall for that. I wonder how many military spec Scouts were sold? John
