Just so you guys know I am still around I thought I would throw up a thread of some service work/ retro mods I did awhile back on probably one of the nicest factory scouts I have ever laid eyes on. The owner contacted us about doing some service work and modifications to his Scout. I may be wrong on the history as it has been awhile since this one was done, but I believe this Scout was originally from Colorado, then purchase and moved to Wisconsin where sadly it developed some slight rust issues. When it rolled in it was on 4" lift springs and some 33x12.50 tires. Also installed were new body bushings all around, driver side door latch mechanism, and some other random fixes. The owner wanted the rust repaired, Engine leaks taken care of, lowered to a 2.5 inch lift and some 31x10.50s installed on factory wheels and hubcaps. Here are some pics of what the rig looked like when it rolled into the shop and some shots of the classy original stuff. Original low mileage 345 completely untouched with working air pump. Bling!! First order of business was to throw some fresh rubber at the engine as over the years the gaskets had deteriorated and begun to leak. Valve cover gaskets were a chore with all the original things in the way. Also none of the tins were painted to keep the engine looking as it should. Cleanest valve train I have ever seen. Inside of the tins with little more than wiping them off.
