Man I love that one, the stance is perfect and all the work you're doing to get it there is the kind of stuff I love to see. What you're doing under that Scout can be a tutorial for so many kits with molded on suspension or things that need to be separated and kit bashed and scratch built and so on! I tried to Pro Street one many years ago, but it never turned out quite right. Seeing yours now, I think I should do one more like you are, thank you for the inspiration!
As for that upper rad hose, I usually don't even bother with the kit ones, find an electrical wire the same thickness, strip both ends leaving some wire, then glue one end into the thermostat housing and when dry, bend the wire to fit into the rad perfectly, so much easier, especially for the lower rad hoses, you can brush paint it with acrylic Nato Black if you need to after it's installed. Thin strips of foil or photo etch hose clamps can also be added after if you wish.
Looking cool, love those Starliners! Here's what I do when I drill out the headlights, foil the bucket but don't trim the foil, Q-tip the inside and glue in the clear lenses from a parts box or donor kit. Once the lenses are glued in, trim the foil using the clear lens as a guide for your knife, it makes it a lot easier than all the other methods I've tried over the years. I really don't like chrome headlights!
