75 Jimmy 2WD

Picked up this Jimmy.
Plan is to give it a major altitude adjustment.
Ls swap.
Add side trim.
Change color to two tone Hawaiian blue & white.
Change interior to Highlander blue.

Re: 75 Jimmy 2WD

Looks like a really fun project. Those seats look nice, too bad you are going to have to change them. I am sure they will either be recovered or fine a new home.

Thanks. Yes seats are really nice with no rips. I will give someone a super deal on them if they have good cores to trade.

Re: 75 Jimmy 2WD

Kind of wish I would have seen this a few days ago. I came from a show up in Oregon and on my way back I could have stopped and swapped seats with some cash. Have a 75 GMC full top myself.

That would have been great. I really hate to recover such nice seats.
