New to me 91 Jimmy

Well, I first came to this forum because of the extensive knowledge of first generation K5"s. Now diving into a couple 3rd gen K5"s and hope for the same knowledge base or help to build it. New in the driveway 1991 K5. I do have some work to do on this truck (not a southern truck). I have to do rear floor (at tail gate) and rear floor support, outer and inner rockers both sides, drivers outer floor, body mounts. But here is a pic

You wouldn't guess it needed that much metal work looking at the picture. Congrats on the purchase. What are your plans for it?

Re: New to me 91 Jimmy

Gut the truck day. 1991 K5 Jimmy under the knife. Gutted the inside, all side panels, seats, carpet, kick panels, center console, glove box, removed nasty running boards, retracted rear window and removed tail gate. And yes there is rust and rot (this was planned for). Next step order body parts, cut and weld in new. FYI this is what salt does to your vehicles and this truck has been heavily undercoated since new. So yes rust from the top side down.
