    It pains me to say it but, KEEP THAT THING AWAY FROM THE PINELANDS!!!

    You can bring it in 10 years when it's faded, dirty, dented and rusty. Until then, keep it home. Not to mention all that pretty might screw up our rep.

    AWESOME!
    It feels good, doesn't it? :beer:

    There ain't no skeeters for 10 miles around thanks to you:D

    Since you got them fancy new doors, are you going to cut down your old doors and make some half doors?

    I love this build! 4 thumbs waaaaay up!

    *hijack* I swapped a '96 PSD into my '65 S80, I reused the stock motor mounts and the matching plates that unbolt off the stock Ford crossmember.

    We have youtube tags enabled here.

    What you do is type [y o u t u b e] and then paste everything that comes after the "=" from your youtube link, followed by [/y o u t u b e] That embeds your video here.

    I thought you might like that, so I edited your thread to include the tags :)

    You can also click edit on your thread and see the tags that I inserted into your post if you like to see a better example of how that is done.

    John :)

    sweet! :D

    got more stuff done, used some duplicolor truck bed coating on the cab area, used a gallon and a quart so it's nice and thick! i sprayed the pedals with the canned bed coating too. only prob was the paint came off the rocker with the tape.....:taz::censored:

    also got a coolant filter installed as when i pulled the engine apart half the oil/water cooler ports were plugged up! :no: i figure this will help it stay clean inside.

    progresssssssss sweet as candy! :yes::beer:

    i cutout a piece of diamond plate to cover the transmission inspection hole on the transmission hump. also got some dynamat in, but i ran out. so i put the dash in for good. getting things moced up. i also cut out some plywood to cover the bulkhead, also have to cutout the carpet to go on the plywood. i got the vinyl mat kit in the basement warming up, it's soooo cold it's hard to form to shape at 20 degrees....

    :punk::beer:

    Check the roofing section/ducting and ventilation at your local Lowe's/Home Depot for Peel & Seal it's foil with a sticky rubber backing. 6" x 25' roll ~$15-20.

    095959062513md.jpg

    It's very similar to Dynamat/Hush Mat and a LOT cheaper.


    I like the diamond tread aluminum shifter trim.

    The Scout is lookin' goooooood. Did ya get the skeeter fogging under control?
