Well, I forgot to take pics yesterday, shame on me [emoji849]. I ended up repainting the dash and grill, I wasn't happy with how it turned out the first time.
Painted all the small brackets black. Stuff like seat brackets , tire carrier stop and such. Also rebuilt the heater box with a new core. Ordered a bunch of parts, most should be in tomorrow.

Glad you found a nice uncut dash with openings for the clock and tach. It's going to be a really nice seven.

Thanks, it wasn't 100% perfect. I had to fix one hole in it.

I'll vouge for ya. [emoji12] The dash came out awesome.
Thanks Jake!

I forgot to mention Jake came down and helped with the process yesterday. I won't mention what he broke and then "Tried to fix" :rotfl::crazy: Good times though and I do appreciate the help! :wave:

Got the paint smoothed out today.

Grill back in

Pulled the blue seat covers. I'll be putting thes in the for sale thread. Somebody can use the backs for repair pieces

Getting closer.



I still have a lot of little cosmetic things to add and of course a steering column. Then I'll tackle mechanical, brakes, fluids, ignition, and such.

Man the little stuff is really sucking up some time on this one. First pic is one that I forgot to post earlier in the thread.


New old stock bumpers
all the snaps are on. When I get a warm day I'll fit the top.

hole drilled for head light switch. I really like the floor mats!

And some carb work. This one is a weber clone. I want to go with stock so I can run the stock air cleaner.

I saw the kitchen cabinets in the one pic of his workbench a few posts up and remembered that I have a bunch in my basement waiting to be hung in my garage as well. That is supposed to be a summer project. AFTER I get the Scrambler "done".

Thanks guys!
Been slow going, sick with the flu for a week didn't help. Glad i got that flu shot [emoji849]
Seat belts in.
this is how to drill out the drip tubes on a carter to keep it from clogging. The drill bit is so small I have to use a pair of pliers and drill it by hand. My drill will not tighten down on it.
And replaced the shifters with a pair that has better inserts.
