Building "Nightmare" (78 GMC Jimmy)

  • I figured I'd hop on here and make a build thread for my current project like so many of you guys have. I think after attending my first blazer bash my inspiration and desire to dig back into my truck was renewed.

    This is my 1978 GMC JIMMY that has gained the nickname Nightmare due to it fighting me every step of the way, if it could go wrong it did, some of my other threads read like a bad comedy, this truck did not want to be driven. Looking back over the years it was a huge pain but I have learned a lot and the truck is rock solid now so it was worth it. Here's a current pic from right before BB16.
