The door closes and latches! The gaps are not perfectly even but perfect isn't a realistic goal anyway. It's a tight fit but it doesn't rub and it latches. The rocker panel is another story. I matched the ends to where I cut the stock one. Those are OK but the gap at the bottom of the door could be home to a family of chipmunks. I can live with it because my goal is a functional light offroad rig that doesn't look too bad. I have little bodywork experience but I do think the repro rocker was a shitty match and that was part of the problem.

Congrats.. !! There is an inner and outer rocker. Inner is the structural one and outer is like the fenders for creating the shape look of body. Outer provides the fill between fenders, door, and bottom lip of inner rocker.

Maybe it will help keeping it rust free and the mud will fall or can be washed out easily :O)

Yup. My inner rocker just needed some patch work. Attached is the outer tacked in.

Maybe it’s the angle of the pic but it looks like there is “twist” in your outer rocker. Might explain the bottom gap issues
Was noticing the same thing in the pic. Congrats on getting it lined up to the edges 👍

It is twisted a little but the photo makes it look worse. I'm not really sure why, it's flat across the top of the inner rocker and even with the old rocker where I spliced at the dog legs...

You are doing 'Repairs' (functional again) and not 'Restoration' so you can go play in it like you mentioned.

So, as long as YOU and the CHIPMUNKS are happy that''s all that really matters. :yes:

Josh, we met a few weeks ago while I was cruising up to Missoula! Stumbled onto this thread, so cool to see the work here after seeing the scout in person! Finally found a project scout that suited me. Maybe our scouts will cross paths come hunting season.

cheers,
-Ben

Had my scout for 48 hours and it already got an abandoned vehicle notice so that’s seems about right...

New water pump and radiator hoses today. Oil change and new pan gasket. Polishing up the old paint and taking the top off for the first time!

First steps completed for an eventually completely upgraded electrical system. I replaced the battery ground to the block (power steering pump bracket) and power lead to the starter with 2 gage wire. Easy project that required a total of 8' of wire.

Definitely good first steps.. having solid ground and power lines will help keep you from chasing issues.. Shutter though when see how much copper (good lines) have gone up.. It doesn't hurt to run a negative from battery to the body as well to help from having to chase ghosts in my past experience.
