    I recently purchased a SS hard top. Looking for anyone that has one that could send pictures of theirs to me. I know there have been some “improvements” to several areas of mine and looking to try to make it as original as I can. Thanks [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    That's homemade?

    As far as I know IH never offered a hard top model of the SSII.

    It was no top or soft top only.

    Thanks for the info and links- this is some of the info I was looking for. It was an after market top. So far I have found 1 other person with one. His is missing the tail gate. I am still looking for close up pictures to determine what I need to do to make mine as original as possible.

    I just picked up the top recently and my SS is currently in transit to me. I do plan on installing it once it arrives. My SS is non running so it may go to storage, till I have time, but I will get a few pictures posted. I suspect the doors hinges that are already on the SS will not match the fiberglass door mounts, but would be pleasantly surprised if they did. Would love to see pictures of your doors. Especially close up of windows, knobs. Are your windows plexiglass?

    More pictures- mine needs work - 2 windows are cracked, rear hinges have been replaced with incorrect piano hinges. I hope to be able to put it back to original shape. I just realized the traveler gasket/molding might be the correct length for the two side pieces.

    I will dig them out and get pics. I made a few mistakes with mine ,after going down the road a while the handles would vibrate off the clasp they hooked to and always seemed to be the pass side at the wrong time.

    So I took them out and cut a square hole and put in the flip latch type of handles on a truck tool box ,have a few bugs to work out to make them more user friendly.

    I just used a set of stainless hinges from a sheep.not original .but my scout is all glass and the only thing original ss is the motor and vin tag lol

    One door has the areas that looks like they were fiberglassed to stiffen up the door. The other door does not have that repair/improvement. It does look like they used a metal rod underneath the new fiberglass.
