Love the spongebob meme, ish. keep going Greg I never tire of your antics!

Previous owner did manage to do a quick compound polish on RedBull but I wanted to give him a real thorough paint correction to get that original paint to really pop. This is my first solid color Scout color rejuvenation. Quick side note, Ed sent me a new glovebox button, he’s a pillar in this Scout group and I’m thankful for his friendship. Thanks Ed! No more seatbelt locking glovebox.....


I’m pretty excited with the results!

Blue thing? You mean the blanket? That’s where my fish cleaning gf sleeps, don’t mind her.
swapped the wheels up one size, off Gold Digger, his original wheels and tires, in an effort to get more mph, less road noise, and more stability.

As Mongo astutely pointed out, I swapped the rims and tires. The mud off road style tires were like new but loud and aggressive, and GD’s set was not in use. They’re more of a radial all terrain and skinny and one inch taller. Yes I road tested with gps and squeezed 63 mph flat out 🥳

Other great news, now back with the 15 in stamped steel wheels I was able to utilize a set of original turbine hub caps. Double win!

Because the hood had so much character but so little paint, and with patina look being all the rage, I experimented with some “patina sauce” products. A vendor on Instagram, makes this stuff to moisturize the bare metal look and eliminate some of the oxidation. I really like how it pops, and so far only one application in a month, but it’s kept inside. 👀
