            I like it, good job. I am not a huge fan of the Scouts, but I did get a chance to get pulled out of a nice stuck by one once.

                got a good laugh out of the responses!
                "You cant polish a turd..." i didn't realize you were polish!
                busta, i am going to paint it with durabak smooth. not sure what color, was bent on white, but thinking about red too. white is easy to "fix" after trail destruction........

                  okay, here's what i did with the doors. didn't want to leave the door mechanisms open so i made the panels to cover em. painted with a can of spray on bedliner. gotta make a console or buy a tuffy to put the stereo in. suspension is next!

                          She'd prefer an automatic, but I think she'd take a manual. It'll be mostly street-driven, with some trail time here and there. She's more of the fire-road type, not much into rock crawling/mud-bogging. Yea, there was a guy on one of the other forums put up an ad for a buddy of his in Central NC. Guy had a Scout (no clue what year) good shape and running for $500! Guy disappeared and wouldn't respond to any PM's...

                          BTW, what years did the full-size run?
