Now Im almost complete with the outside and am working on wiring for the inside.









Once this is done I need to do drywall and move everything inside the workshop and then move the Jimmy and its boxes and boxes of parts back home to my garage. Fun fun....

Was going to clean it up, but figured some more would come out on the trip to tx so I left it in there as a parting gift.

Glad to see you're making progress on the building and on the jimmy. Hate that you got it, but glad you have it.

Thanks man... i was kinda unhappy about the TERRIBLE smell in my garage when the Kimmy was here. It was awful...
Guess what? When i removed your kitty litter/quick dry and dumped it in the dumpster... the smell went away!!!

Anyway, Ihavent made much progress at all. yet as soon as i complete the shop building project and get some money coming in again, Ill be workin on the Jimmy again.

Im back on the boards now cause I have time now that the move is done. Everything is either in storage or at my house and the store/shop lease is done and over.

Ohhh so many projects... Im not quite done the big project (building shop, moving business, building office, finding job, etc) I cant work on the Jimmy cause its temporarily in storage. I need to get it and bring it home by next Friday. I had some new job tests Saturday, Monday, tuesday, and im going for an interview today... Plus selling the business, and working hard on my eBay business.....

Anyway.... So the Jimmy isnt even here at the house yet. If all goes well and I sell a business soon... I just may have a pile of cash and be able to finish the Jimmy in a hurry. WEEEE!! Keep your fingers crossed! if it all plays according to plan, i could be driving it by spring!

So Im bringing the Jimmy home again this weekend. I have a trailerlined up and Im removing it from its current resting spot in my buddys shop.

If all goes well parts ordering will happen next week (keep your fingers croassed)

Step 1: Body
Parts list
- Goodmark 2" cowl induction hood
- Certifit 91-93 GMC Grille
- Certifit radiator support
- Certifit smooth front bumper
- Certifit bumper brackets
- Certifit lower valence
- Certifit front fenders
- Certifit inner fender (maybe)
- Grant Kustoms or Sir Michaels weld -on, centered, drop tag rollpan

Install, clean, prep, paint
- cut frame ends and weld on roll pan
- fix dent on passenger side before wheel
- remove fenders, hood, core support and clean the piss outta the front end! (ie clean frame rails and such)
- sand prep etc etc whole body for paint
- Paint truck

Paint... Here are my thoughts at this moment. I have a while to go so its no rush but this is what I like.
- Black/Black/Black wheels
- Blue/White/Black wheels - Grand Sport Vette look
- Orange/Black/Black wheels
- Red/Black wheels

Step 2: Suspension and Traction
Parts shopping
- Belltech Lowering Keys
- Belltech 3" rear springs w/ black (not sure block size yet)
- Blazer Xtreme, ATR, or BellTech sway bar
- Bushings maybe (?)
- 275/40/17 BF Goodrich g-Force Sport Tires
- Rear wheel spacers (where do I find these?)
- fender flares or something of the sort... ?

To Be Continued....
