Just thought I'd post a few pictures of what my '79 Scout has gone through since it was born...

Stock. Dad bought it new (that's him driving).

After high school body shop to "fix" the rust and all the dents I put in it while driving it in high school.

After sitting in my parents' pasture for 10 years.

SOA by D&C, 33" tires, "new" doors, complete overhaul of the 304 and 727.

New everything (almost). Chris Keck is to credit for this work. He listed everything he did to it in a post below.

Signed sealed delivered. Sweet man. Last time I saw your scout it was at Kecks getting the body work done. I cant belive how in-depth chris had to go to get the rust out, but I know its as 'Rusty Free' as it can get. He even got into the trans tunnel, replaced most (if not all the step up to the bed) and replaced just about everything else.

Quite the job. Glad to see it back in your hands. Can't wait to see where it goes from here. Make sure you put some serious undercoating on that thing ~ or just don't drive it in the winter.

Keep posting pictures as it progresses.

I like it white myself. I replaced, both Inner/outer rockers, all 4 rocker extensions, both front floor pans, all 6 floor supports, both front cab mounts, both center cab mounts, Lower front fenders on both sides, fiberglass 1/4's both sides, 1/2 of both inner 1/4's, both tailgate pillers, tailgate, patched the rear cargo floor, replaced the top, windsheld frame, DS door, all 4 kick panels and i'am sure i'am missing something. Not much of it wasen't replaced. Diffently keep it out of those winters and it should last a long time.

Thanks for the replies and compliments guys. I remember the first day my Dad brought it home. I was 8 years old. For some reason I have been completely taken by it every since. Can't explain it, but you know what I mean. It's one of the most powerful pieces of my history. Ever seen the "No Rain" video by Blind Melon? That's how I felt the first time I found this web site.

Anyhow, I have some other pictures of it right after I finished it out the first time. I'll try to dig them up and post them. The second picture is after it had sat for about 10 years.

IMO, Chris Keck is a freakin' genius. The picture doesn't do what he did justice. I have a ton of pictures that I took before, and Chris took a bunch during and after the repairs he did. I'll post them soon. If you're impressed now wait 'till you see these!

Midwest winters are a nasty, slushy, salty ordeal. You can bet all you want that this truck will be babied. My car sits out; not this.

Keep a lookout for this thread. I'll be adding pictures frequently.

-Dave

[hijack] Chris, is this something you do for a business or is it one of those things that you do for friends because you're damn good at it? After looking at those pictures of the before and after that is some great work.[end hijack]


David,
That Scout looks great!!!! It's nice to have a cool background story to go with a great looking rig.

Thanks Ricky. I'm excited about getting it painted, hopefully this year sometime.

I don't want to speak for Chris, but I don't think he's taking on any jobs right now. He was doing it kind of on the side. I left my Scout with him when I moved to Ill. for him to do when he had time, then I had it shipped back to me. He's a great guy, and he really did a nice job.

Ya, Chris told me that he wasn't taking anymore jobs. He's got plenty to do already, and wants to focus on his own scout (he's like me, you work on everyone elses, and never have time for your own). Since he won 1st in state and 11th nationally, he's also teaching body work at the local CC.

I'm trying to get him to put suicide doors on the T-ette. :cool: :eek: :cool: We'll see.

I was doing it on the side after my normal job to make extra money to pay for upgrades on my Scouts, but guess what i haven't touched my own trucks for about 3 years. So its time i enjoy my own stuff for a change.

"Rico, STATUS REPORT!" We 'penguins' are very covert people you know. We just kept stompin on the keys until it went into 'manual overide' ~ then we changed course, due south, and it allowed us to have an avatar! ;) :D :D

In reality, I didn't go threw the normal channels for becoming a supporting member. Instead of going through the link thingy to subscribe, I simply sent $20 to the BB via my paypal account. Since it didn't go through the normal methods, it didn't update my "status".

On top of the $20/year, I'm sure my $80/month to be an advertiser had something to do with it.

:D :D :D :D
