    Thanks, Fellow members for the kind words. Soon as I get my retirement check it's off to the passengers side. :D

    That's an extreme makeover that is worth seeing.

    WOW! Amazing work. I was just pricing up all the sheetmetal patches I need to make the repairs to mine. Only $400 worth not including the windshield frame I already bought. I just hope my repairs look like THAT when I am done.

    Nice work!

    Right now all I want to do is replace all of the body rust. I've rebuilt the transmission (turbo 350) with a B&M overhaul kit programmed for heavy duty and machined the clutch housings to add extra clutch plates. Rebuilt the 205 transfer case. The engine is scheduled for next year, 350 4 bolt main with a few warm up goodies. The truck already has a 6 inch lift.

    Still trying to decide on a color for the paint. It was originally bright yellow GM code 425, still had it marked on the firewall.

    Nice job!!! Between you and K5baby I certainly have my work cut out for me, nice pun, you guys have a superior level of workmanship :bow: With watching your progress it gives me guidelines and incentive to plod on. Now that I have a job again, I can work on the Jimy. I just wish I could reach the speeds that you guys seem to accomplish your work. Later J.
