Almost Ready For Primer!

I'm close to primer after a month of body work. Still no rust surprises just a mess of bondo I cut out to find a mess of slide hammer holes. I welded them all up and used a cold wet rag to shrink the metal back into shape. Whoever did that work had no business using a slide hammer. But then again, back when it was done nobody cared about trucks. I'm hoping to have it painted by the end of April.

Primer

a few spots I'm not totally happy with but we'll see how it blocks out with the guide coat. The cowl I'm going to have blasted as I don't feel like sanding the three paints jobs off that like I did the rest of the truck. The I can go wet on wet when I paint it separately and save my finger prints.

Re: 1972 Jimmy Resurrection

Been a while since I've updated. I've been driving the Jimmy for two years now and have worked out all the bugs. The TBI set up from affordable fuel injection has been awesome! Starts first crank, tones of power and no flooding on steep hills. Got around to a few mods this weekend. I dropped in a HD44 front and a 60 rear with a dana power lok. The switch to 4.11's from 3.08's was a HUGE improvement! I switched to a one ton booster and master while I was at it. The first stop I nearly hit the steering wheel being used to the old brakes. The big 3/4 ton rotors and drums help as well.

Re: 1972 Jimmy Resurrection

One being used for the purpose she was designed for. Camping in the middle of nowhere. I'll never understand RV sites. 4x4 tent trailer, fly rod, life perfect with a cold stout around the evening fire.

Re: 1972 Jimmy Resurrection

When I put the crate engine in a good buddy of mine was going to hot rod the old well seasoned 4 bolt main 350. He tore it down and found it was already 60 over so he decided to put it to better use. The two cylinders on the top are the reason I leave his shop feeling sleepy. At least I know where the original engine is.

Me to! If you like Lagavulin I suggest laphroaig quarter cask. It's much cheaper, at least up here, and has become my favorite. I like any of the Isle of Islay scotches though.
