A new Top, A Topless Scout, A scout meeting!

It's been a busy day!

This morning I went shopping for the week and got some frozen food to take to work for lunch, Then I went to the east side of town and picked up my new top for the scout with my Dad.

We got a pretty good deal, $110 for the top, Normally they cost between $300 and $600.

The top is in OK shape, its got some holes in it from a lightbar and it needs to be painted.

So when we got home my father started to take the old top off while I had the unpleasant job of cleaning the fish tank.

Later after we got the top off Jon came by to take some pictures and go for a ride in it without the top.

We got the new rear bulkhead mostly in place, there are some bolts that don't fit right so we will have to work on it some more this week, But it was good enough for me to drive to the meeting.

The meeting was good, Got to see people I had not seen in a while and I finally got my Rendevous kit from last year which Joel had been bringing to meeting after meeting in the hopes of catching me.

There was a new guy at the meeting, has a '79 scout that he bought 'new' with 2000 miles on it from a IH dealer in '79.

Quite impressive to see one with the interior in it still.
