Also if anyone is rebuilding their vent Windows I found a place online www.thefillingstation.com that caries the special rivets for the upper pivot. I bought 4 rivets (in case I messed one up) and the rivet tool for like $15.
Got an "invalid" on that website. Looks like it is www.FillingStation.com
Thanks for the comments. Here is a link to the mirrors. Mirrors fit LT or RT sides.
I found the same mirrors on AMAZON for $20.12 each with PRIME Shipping. I searched for "H3511B" and they popped up. Was gonna cost me a ton to ship from REALTRUCK to Hawaii. I got them in today, they look great and are identical to yours.
Question, have you driven it enough to verify that your mirror placement gives you the visibility your desire. Yours are set back a bit farther than my originals. I'll be drilling at least one new hole anyway but was wondering if you'd fit checked them yet?
Yes I have driven my Scout about 1,200 miles so far. Yes the placement on them is good for me. I was trying to place them so the vent window wasn’t in the field of vision. I had welded up all holes prior to paint so I had to drill all new holes. I sat in the drivers seat and had my wife hold them up until I liked where they were. The only thing I don’t like about them is they tend to loosen up as you drive. Not from the mounts but where they adjust so you have to snug them up here and there. I may try and loc-tite them.
I noticed the rear quarter gussets (just in front of the rear wheels) were left off. Was there a reason for that?
Thanks for answering and love the Scout! Hope to make mine half as nice some time soonNo I have them still just need to put them on. I am going to make them removable so I can clean that area out in the future if needed. I plan to finish up a few things on it once the weather gets warmer.

What's your process for attaching things like the rear outer quarter panels after both inner and outer have been primed and undercoated?
I'm in Nashville TN.I made sure not to spray raptor liner on the surfaces that were going to be welded. I simply drilled holes and plug welded the outer quarter panels to the inner quarters. I did have access to a spot welder for the wheel house portion though. Thanks for the comments. Where are you located?
First off this thread is absolutely one of the best things I've ever seen on the internet! Thanks for all your time put into detailing and picturing everything! just one question. It looks like your drilled holes in the floor to spot weld onto the supports, did that penetrate well with the rust encapsulator sprayed on it? I want to coat mine too just wasn't sure how well that would work when welding the floor back in. thanks in advance.Well I got the cargo floor and the RT front floor welded in tonight. Also scored LT and RT NOS 1/4 panels still in the box locally here in Denver. He sold them to me for $250 each so glad I didn't have to pay for shipping on those.
