72 burb

Bought this a week or so ago.($1500)
this is my first project of this size and I might be biting off more then i can handle. Im learning quick.

Pretty sweet ride.hopefully have everything done by next summer.

Things to do...
6-8" lift
wheels/tires
paint
all new weather stripping throughout
all interior needs redone..so basically everything.
fix heater
fix both a/c units
clean up motor(runs..but not great)
new bumpers...off road style.
rear bumper will be spare tire and gas can holder.
roof rack wih a lite bar.
winch in front bumper



72 suburban
1/2ton
4x4
air-conditioning/rear air(rear air??pretty rare?)

little rust here and there.

Driver door was rusted out. Got a door off a truck.
I thought it would swap out with no issues.
Thought wrong.



Before


After

some patches of rust in a few areas...
So i bougt a welder today and decided i could patch the rust myself.=D
upon fixing the rust patch i found 2 more below it..omg

finished patch..lol


ive had these tires in the shop for about 2 years.
so i decided to put them up for sale..but im having second thoughts.
I would have to swap out the axles though..1/2 ton=6 lug and these are 8 lug off my current truck.(pic below) but swapping axles wouldnt be a bad thing.


craigslist pic..couple people have called.

because this looks pretty damn good.


i put it on my lift to get a look at what it could look like.

Planning on painting it..already started pulling glass and once it is patched/sanded/bondo/...ill paint it in here.
im thinking satin black. i bought a sample for the cloth for the interior. ill post pic once i get it in the mail.


now onto the question...
are parts available for rear air?
i didnt realize it was an option back then.
any info will help!

thanks

Re: 72 burb

Cool burb and Welcome! For the door, all you have to do is swap window frames. There were a lot of different options for a/c. Search the parts board for stuff you might need. The wheels would look pretty sweet after a fairly simple axle swap. Good luck.

Great buy, and I can't wait to see how this thing looks riding up on those meaty tires. Good luck with the install!

I have a 3/4 ton axle for sale off a 90 Suburban here in Vacaville and I have a 84 front 4x4 axle that you could convert to a 3/4 axle

Re: 72 burb

I think i might have those 38's sold. If it falls through ill pm you.Thanks!

I also came across an interior for a 96 sub. Bought the seats out of it. Pretty good deal. So i set them in place to see if it would work out ok. Looks good.
Leather/power. Couple small tears in the front buckets. Easy fixes. Second row and rear are basically perfect. Need a good cleaning.

Re: 72 burb

Hey Lig Boozer,that thing is pretty nuckin`fice! (I dig your name)

You can handle it.Man,I hope you kept the wheels`n`tires.You`ll need to buy more anyway and 8-luggers rock.You`ll need to scrounge for the rear a/c parts.what parts do you know it needs?Are you just anticipating?It may not need anything.I think it would be 'cool" if you could get that working. (I know...keep the day job)
