Re: LFD's 4dr Burb Build

Are the 4th door hinges just 3rd door hinges, flipped upside down? Is the area they attach to the (3rd) door the same as on the front doors?

Looks Great!!

For the most part yes on both. I did it this way to make it as stock (if they were ever built) as possible. All dimensions and parts are the same but flipped.

Re: LFD's 4dr Burb Build

Front end is now on and I had a 71 grill in the rafters I through on to complete the out side a bit more.

I added it all up and I have right about 40 hrs in the jamb opening and another 45-50 in the door!

Well time to list it in the For Sale section

Re: LFD's 4dr Burb Build

My computer is giving me grief and not loading the other pic-tastic pages, but how come your selling this? Thought in the 1st post it was going to be a keeper.

Fantastic work as always though man!

Re: LFD's 4dr Burb Build

Nice job! Did you make the outside keylock operable or are you going to weld it up like the passenger side?

I feel like such an idiot right now. I just realized the passenger side does not have a lock. I made everything work on the 4th door! Well I guess I have a bit more welding to do

Sorry, didn't mean to add more work. How hard would it be to put keylock on the passenger side? I would personally want both doors to have one espcially since it doesn't have remote power locks, but that's just me.

If I had it, I would more than likely get by with claiming my 3 door was "rare", .

Re: LFD's 4dr Burb Build

I think that most people, unless they know about these body style burbs would think it is all original

You did a really nice job man

Re: LFD's 4dr Burb Build

Which comes first, the burb or the divorce? If I got the burb I'd end up divorced, but if I got divorced first, I then couldn't afford the burb. Hmmm, I'll have to think about this dilemma...

Good question but you are looking at it the wrong way. She may leave you just because and then you are left with nothing. If you get the Burb you will at least have something to drive around the new girl friends in!

You know, I always said I would just buy a garage with a small apartment attached if this ever happened. But I don't think I'll push it.

Re: LFD's 4dr Burb Build

Well as my ADD kicks in again it looks like this project will go under the knife once again It was not selling like I thought it would and instead of dropping my price to a stupidly low amount I figured I might as well put in more time and shorten things up a bit. It is back in the shop and currently getting some layout marks before getting cut apart.
I will be following Mike's surgery directions but I am going with slightly different proportions and I will only be cutting my frame in the rear even know I am shortening the wheel base as well. The plans are for a 4 link of some design for the rear to be decided on at a later date. Since I am only going to shorten the WB by 9 3/4" their is no real reason for me shorten the center of the frame when I can do it all on the back end. This will also eliminate the need mods to the floor under the second row seat.

First step is going to be cutting the rear wood floor out so I can gain access to remove tubs, tire well and misc braces. Then body slice and dice time will begin. Pic's to follow but not allot because I think Mike did such a great job documenting his their is no reason to do it twice since I am following his as well for parts of this next process.
