Scout II Top Restoration

I was considering throwing out or more likely trading the top for my Scout II for parts when I decided to restore it. This is the before shot. It was being used as a paint bench. The white on the windows was overspray from some 2K epoxy primer I had left in the gun from painting the Scout that I used on the top to cover the rust. Purely for cosmetic purposes while it was sitting in the yard.

The drip rail sealant had failed and was leaking inside and rusting.

The rear top frame spot welds were broken at the back so that the sides would bow out and the back end was not in alignment.

Holes in the roof from removing the  factory roof rack.

Surface rust all over and a few dents.

The one saving grace was that the rust was on the surface and not through anywhere and the tailgate was in very good condition.
