Some more Scout Progress
« on: September 02, 2008, 05:43:27 PM »
After having the scout sit dormant for two weeks while I tracked down a new alternator bracket (old one gave up the ghost while installing a new alternator) I tackled a few projects.

I ordered a hood strut kit, to change from the old school hood prop to a self lifting and holding hood. Plus I can not close the hood from either side whereas befor you could only do it from he passenger side.

Before (note shiny new alternator):


After:


In action!

I also worked on sanding, priming and painting the front grille and headlight surrounds. I need to snap a couple pictures of those this evening.
