Dan - I think your project is going to come out great!!! I have always wanted to paint mine orange. Please keep me posted on your progress. I have the green SSII in Reno Nv. on this site. (said over 5 years ago by Eric Reid).

Eric, come on yours' is awesome. Way to go Dan. (said over 4 years ago by Rob ).

looks like a great truck in the works. I'd like to ask, about the intake manifold, did you pick that up at a local auto parts store? is that intake specific to IH engines? What's cost? tHanks (said over 4 years ago by James).

tHanks, sorry for the delay in answering. The manifold is an RPT unit made for IHC. You can get it here on Anyhting Scout. (said over 3 years ago by Dan Arruza).

Finally got back to my Scout. Stripped the body down for the color change. SSII orange (said over 3 years ago by Dan Arruza).
