Here's a few updated pics of my build:





It will all be camo, of course, and I'll do sheet metal work to get the Scout lines including stretching the tub back so it envelops the back of the cage and squaring off the cowling to match the hood. I'm even going to use my old Scout tailgate and the Scout tail lights. So, it will look so similar no one will really be able to tell :D

So, feel free to vote for me in TTC ;)

Yeah it'll be done. I'll be driving it at the latest Sunday or Monday. I had hoped for Saturday, but that's asking alot especially since I have a 10:50 appointment at the DMV tomorrow to renew it and register the Bug. We'll see how much I can really get done in the next few days

Oh yeah. The motor is in. I had to make a 1/4" spacer to go between the motor and bellhousing cause it just didn't like the higer forks on the heavy duty pressure plate. The front is tubed, the front passenger part of the cage is done, the Fuel Cell is in place and will be strapped in tomorrow. The steering is all done except being attached to the dash. Got the master cyclinders for the brakes and clutch in place, the gas pedal is in place along with the cable and a bunch of other things.

I need to make a pedal assembly that can work around my steering and such, a new dash, wire it all up, fix a rear link I broke with my impact, body work to make it more squared like my old Scout, mount shocks, run gas and brake lines, and all the cleanup from the SHITTY welds I've been laying down lately.

LOL. Atleast I put the Scout on the front part (the leading edge) of the rig :D
Definitely better than a scout body with a jeep front end!

Dude, that thing is FUGLY! I'm actually digging it a lot more now! I'ts coming out pretty sweet. I can't wait to see pics of the finished product!
