I haven't wrenched on the scout in over a month but I have been using it constantly! Gosh I love this rig. I have plans for some upgrades and repairs but they will wait until after hunting season.

New Master cylinder, starter and extended brake line in the rear today. The solenoid cap was cracked on the old starter, which might explain the occasional click without turning over. I ordered the brake hoses from SSS and the back is fine but the front ones don't have the correct fittings on the caliper end. I have to do some research and see what is going on there.

We used to have a '79 that was an auto as well. It would sometimes click instead of start. Ours ended up being the relay for the NSS, it is bolted to the back top of the ashtray bracket. Won't hurt to fix the starter either. The relay is the exact same one used for the horn that is located on the driver side inner fender near the m/c.

Getting back into a few projects on the scout after a few months of just enjoying using the rig as it was intended! Noticed a wet area on the lower rear shock mount and crawled under there to find the issue. The shock was installed new with the 2.5 RC lift in June but it is already shot! That is irritating. I took it off, took some photos and called rough country. While I'm not happy about a 7 month old shock with less than 3000 miles on it being junk already, I am really pleased with RC's customer service. A 5 minute phone call and an email with a photo of the junk shock attached and I got the order confirmation for a new set being sent to me. I can live with that.

I've been slowly working on a new front bumper. 5" x 1/4" for the center 36" then 3/16" for the ends. My plan is to use the stock mounting locations with 2 grade 8 1/2 bolts. Working load on those bolts is 7500lbs each so it seems like that will be enough for any recovery and winching. I thing the 1/8" steel on the frame will give out first. I have a few more pieces to fit then final welds and finish but it is coming along nicely.

More progress on the bumper build. Gotta build the pre-runner bar tomorrow then paint. I let the end caps hang down 1/2" to leave a good hook for a highlift jack.

Finished the bumper, well except for mounting the front license plate. I'm pretty happy how it turned out. Steel, hardware, rods, grinding wheels and paint add up to about $150 so if you don't count labor it is a pretty cheap alternative to the aftermarket stuff and way more functional than the factory piece of tin.

That looks great and gives me a good idea of what I need to do.

Those bushings are tough or at least mine were I thought I wasn't going to get them out. Looks like they were toast like mine.

Yeah, they were shot like all the 40 year old rubber bushings on my rig. I used the burn out method then threaded a hacksaw through the hole to cut through the outer metal.
