    First time she's moved in two years, rewarded her with a bath. Washed off all the filler and primer dust along with some sweat. Maybe one more year till completion. Can't wait.

    Cool, another Jimmy!

    Yep I know the feeling well. Mine was off the road for 2 1/2 years. Now I drive it then have to change something and take it off the road again. A never ending process.

    thornbirds

    I run 38.5 thornbirds and i think they are a heck of allot better then bfg mt or somthing of that sort.. they are super swampers allterrain.. i dont know why they get sucha bad rap.. i wheeled mine in winter to a glacier and they did fine.. now with them being so wide the do give it bad manners on streets with blacktop and sunken tire tracks from skinny tires.. ````\/`````\/`````

    Your bodywork is awesome!

    Been checking out your before and after pic's and it looks great. I am currently starting to restore my 70 k5. My rust on the floorboards, rocker boxes, etc, is not as bad as yours was. But than again, I haven't started tearing it down yet. I am planning on replacing anything rusted, so am prepared for the long haul! Any info you could send me on a resto like this would be great! Thanks, later, Bryan.
