Re: 1970 GMC Suburban... for the family

Stalled till February...

The front axle on the White 'burb and my junk Yukon engine collection ate up all my Argon $$.

On the plus side Momma is pushin' me to get the bronze beast rollin' soon! And what Momma says... Daddy does!

Re: 1970 GMC Suburban... for the family

Updates!

Got the gas for my welder, got a new regulator, and the rest of the parts to get it working!



Got the laptop fixed... its now the frankentop



Got another project in the way for a week or 2



It's my buddies M1008. I got it running for him and need to finish up a few other things so it is drivable. It's a cool truck! I actually have the original TM's for this truck, so working on it has been easy.

I will explain this picture later



Today I cleaned up the garage so I can get to work on the Suburban door. I had help



She is a Monkey! She was picking the bolts for the Burb out of the cans, and trying to put them back on it! Momma took this picture.



Also today I took my buddy to the coolest car and dog wash EVER!!!!



If not tonight, then tomorrow I am going to start welding the door up. I need to find a right door to slice up now!

Re: 1970 GMC Suburban... for the family

My welder has been out of gas since November (even though I have lots of gas). I used lots of doors to make one phantom door. I used the rear of a passenger door for the front of the new door for the body lines. I used the rear of a drivers door for the rear of the new door. Multiple window frames to build the new window frame. I found 2 rusted out suburban doors for FREE for the window frames. I have 2 FREE cabs for the door jamb parts. Wife doesn't like back yard right now. Not to mention the other complete truck for the front sheetmetal. I have been collecting parts for 6 years now.

Yeah, I am looking for a right door so the contour of the 4th door matches the rear of the drivers door... then I will see how many more doors I will end up needing

Cuz it couldn't cut it as a pick-up, so it had to go into doing something else with it's life. Seems like it found its niche! Come on, you knew if you could have a pick-up box for a bath tub you would be all over it!

Re: 1970 GMC Suburban... for the family

Parts are going together.

Hope tonight I can finish what I started on this piece. My son isn't feeling too well, so I had to stop here. I got everything tacked in, and started welding it up. I finish welded the top of the sill. It is taking a lot of time because I am keeping my heat down and checking and re-checking fit over and over again!

I really need to find a passenger door so I can keep going once this is done.

Body guys, what do you think? How am I doin?

Re: 1970 GMC Suburban... for the family

Looks like how mine started. Just need to add a little here and cut out a little there and it will all work out. When your welds start to overlap you are getting close.

Re: 1970 GMC Suburban... for the family

Just thought of something, if your still lookin for a door let me know witch one cause I might have an extra one lying around that I picked up for my extended cab build that I may not need. I think I am down to just needing some good burb front doors and have a surplus of truck doors.

I am looking for a right door. it doesn't have to be pretty, I am only going to use the back half of the door frame. I will give you a call tomorrow. If not, I will send you a pm in the PM... I may know where you can get the burb doors you are looking for too
