Re: PROJECT EVOLUTION 70 jimmy build

That looks like you've made a lot of progress since I got the seats from you!

Where did you get the patches for the forward part of the bed, just behind the doors?

Re: PROJECT EVOLUTION 70 jimmy build

well, got the rear quarter done,,ended up only using about 4 inches of it since it was bent wrose then what i had, after 8 layers of paint and 1/2 inch of bondo was stripped from it..lolcame out really good.

got it all stripped to bare metal,did a lil bit of body work, i will finish that when its on the frame. and got some epoxy primer on it. that is some tricky stuff,,but all in all looks pretty good
