Scout Roll Bar

The Scout II needed a roll bar so that I will be able to put a bikini top on it down the line instead of having the hard top on in the warmer months. The pipe is 2″ steel conduit for the hoop and 1.5″ for the diagonal supports. The mounting plates are 1/4″ steel. My dad welded everything together and then I rattle canned it flat black.

I ordered the “rust is lighter than carbon fibre” from volkswagenstickers.co.uk, I think that it suits the truck well 😛

The remainder of the to-do list for the Scout is as follows:

  • Make or buy a bikini top
  • Replace the body mounts (or what’s left of them!)
  • Finish weeding out emissions hoses from the engine bay so that it doesn’t look like it’s full of snakes anymore
  • Paint the bed and cab floor with bedliner
  • Reupholster the bench seat

That’s all for now.
