1977 Scout II body rebuild

I've been trying to get the chassis ready for the body. Brakes, brake lines, u joints, making shock bushings out of Delrin, and today I built the exhaust system. I cleaned up the stock down pipes and finished it out with a summit racing builder's kit.

I can't remember how the rear gas tank strap attaches? Thanks for any help...

Here's a little excitement for me! I'm getting pumped!

Been getting a lot done, AND I got to meet a fellow forum member @vince konicki . It was a real pleasure.

Sent the rest of my stuff out for sandblasting and got everything back the same day. The inner front fenders are from California. After a couple of hours of dolly and hammer work, they fit great and I started assessing the fenders and the way they fit. They will need lots of reshaping!

Also welded my quarter panels on, permanently.

I won't lie. I would totally build a scout with no front fenders or quarters. That would look apocalyptic...

I think that a scout II fold down windshield should be made.


Got the community garden tilled behind the shop as well....

It was a pleasure to finally meet you Jim and get to see your fantastic scout build in person! Thanks also for some of the building tips about proper bracing before welding.
First thing I did yesterday was better brace the door area.

Tinkered a little on the front fender. This was after beating out the lower wheel arch and removing thick filler. It's actually worse than it looks here....

Then I just saved hours by throwing it in the English wheel...

Welded up the holes from previous repairs and started working the smashed in top edge line on down...

Lots more work to do...

I wouldn't say that, Kohler. You are doing terrific. I honestly cannot believe it's your first build!
Today I tackled my lower driver side fender...
I patterned first. Still in the process before grinding. I try to work it as I go to keep the panel manageable for final grinding and dolly and hammer work.

Haven't had but a couple hours here and there, but here's a pretty important piece that probably embodies most scout repairs or any vehicle for that matter. I've never made one of these but it ended up being easier than I thought it'd be and I made it a lot larger than needed...

Thus far, I'm really only back physically; my head and heart are still wondering around somewhere besides my garage! And I'm glad you may start on an 80 in the future. Can never have enough Scout 80s!
