    I am thinking of adding some arm rests to a Scout 80. Does anyone have any suggestions for arm rests that will mount easily and look somewhat factory installed ?
    Also need to add a radio antenna. Any sources for those ?

    Short answer - Go hit up our Light Line dealers. Both of those are re-popped. Or, they are items that can be reclaimed from a Scout being parted out.

    If I recall correctly, the OEM style arm rest that are reproduced are made of wood and must be painted.

    And a Plan B. I went with these:

    I purchased these from LMC truck, and their original application was a 1950's vintage Ford truck. Full disclaimer, I didn't find these on my own. I stole the Idea from one of Jay Maitland's builds. You can review his arm rest here:

    Or, Plan C, find something else you like, and looks good in your Scout, and use those.

    Good luck.
