Very clever. Great to save that nutmeg dash, I'm partial to them myself.

Penny went to gas station for some fresh fuel and fill up some gas cans. Had two different guys walk up asking questions and stating they always wanted a Scrambler… I said you can buy this one jokingly and one said out of his budget and the other took pictures… I guess for right price it is all for sale.

I used an OEM bed mat to trace pattern onto a DeeZee mat and cut with straight edge, utility knife and Windex. The Windex and sharp blade make quick cuts.

Good call on the Windex. I cut my DeeZee mat dry, and it was not fun. Glad to still have all my fingers...

My first mat I cut dry and had blister… the Windex makes it easy…

Used 360 is home and maybe a little while before installation. I am planning new gaskets, paint, new carb, HEI, valve covers and run it… will see if it needs more when replacing all the gaskets.

Degrease, wire wheel, acetone wipe, and a coats of VHT Rust Converter. I didn't clean brakes as new drums and rotors forthcoming. Will top coat with black later…
