    Picked up this 69 Scout 800A about a week ago, and it got delivered today.

    Anyone ever seen or have anything like these letters/numbers on their scout? I have NSW and another letter, looks like maybe an I and some numbers on the passenger door that are a lot harder to make out.

    Has a 4 cylinder but I'm not sure which one, so first question how can I tell which one I have? I'm going to order the line ticket but it just got here so I haven't gotten that far yet.

    Next question this box appears to have been the home to a family of mice for a while I cleaned it out the best I could sticking my hand in it. Is there an easy way to open it to make sure I got it all cleaned out? Couldn't really see a way to get it open.

    As you can see theres some floor replacement to be done, I read in a thread 16 guage steel, just wanted to verify that is the correct thickness? Is it the same for body panels or is that a different size?

    Last question which unfortunately doesn't have an accompanying picture right now. To start the scout you have to touch together a blue and a red wire that are hanging out from behind the gauge cluster. There are actually 2 red and 2 blue wires there. The guy I bought it from said he thought maybe the voltage regulator was missing and that's what the wires were supposed to go to? I don't really have any idea so I'm hoping someone else does. I can get a picture if it will help.
    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Just went to get some used rubber so I can move the scout a little easier. The tires are P215/75B15, the guy asked it they were military. Anyone have any experience with tires this size?

    Tires? Yes.
    They are too small.
