    This is Booger. It's a 76, 345 2 bbl, automatic. We bought it to do some quick work on and try to sell. We've got to swap transmissions, do a little rust repair along the top of the right quarter panel, and clean it up a lot. We're hoping to fall in at around a $4000 price when we're finished with it.

    The next frame off Scout is coming in a few weeks, and this one will be the fill-in!:)

    Yeah...I slapped them on it today, so it wouldn't look so much like a booger.:yes:

    Boot camp in Great Lakes has a smoke house in fire training center called George. After going through George twice I produced a large quantity of that sort of booger for the next day or two.

    Great looking project. Sad to say that I have way more than 4000 in mine and looks nothing like that:oops:

    I understand that! I still really enjoy the adventure of building something from nothing...but for someone who wants a turn-key truck that isn't perfect, but can be driven while they tinker...this is a really good truck!

    I was thinking that was a booger.

    But it's not.... :D

    That's a really good looking rig. I mean green is as green does, but that's a nice looking tub.

    I'm thinking black interior and a white top and your'e good to go!

    I thought that when you gave me the black stripe reference you were talking about MY 100. You know, ratty old D and all. Now the revelation is complete.

    Haha, now I know :D

    Looks like a fine project, and am looking forward to the next installment of "Frame Off" (in the BIG announcer voice :punk:)

    If 'Booger' was a Traveler, you might have been bringing it to Nationals.....:yes: I never liked Travelers before, if I got one it was gone and sold ASAP. Until I drove one for a while, and loaded our gear into one to go to a show....then I was sold. Size DOES matter!

    By the way, I had a 'Booger' a few years ago, it made the journey of ownership from Jeff Jamison to Scott Hattery to me. I used it as a plow truck, and actually drove it quite a bit. Great running Scout, not so great 'on a date' since the passenger's door was sagged so bad that you had to do the 'lift and slam' from outside. I was strong enough that I could lift and slam the driver's door from inside luckily, I never much liked crawling through windows. My 'Booger' was a Johnny Cash Scout II, it had parts from various and associated years and colors, but the main color was a faded out, rusted out 'Forest Service Green'.

    These doors shut GREAT! We were impressed...then pulled the top off, prayed, crossed our fingers, and now the doors STILL shut great!:punk:

    JJ, I wondered what your response to the stripes was all about.:confused:

    I can if you want, Sully. I generally don't deal stripes out there, since I NEVER have the right ones/colors with me. I just take orders and ship after we get home. I'll try to remember to toss one of each in the truck, though.

    That makes more sense for both of us as it may be awhile before I have the painting finished. I'll wait and order once the paint is on. Thanks.

    We're more than proud to have a little added weight for in this Scout when the owner takes it to shows! Nationals 2012 was very kind to it...

    You should be excited, Scoutco stock just shot up 70% when that news went out....congrats on the big win, I looked at that Scout and it deserved every award it got. I'd be afraid to drive it, Booger or your plow Scout is more my type!
