Thanks Double, I still have a 71 C10 and a 71 blazer on the back burners

Re: 66 suburban build

Nobby,
I have something for ya.. PM me so we can figure out how to get this piece out to you.. The three screw holes look pretty rusty, but I'm quite certain you can run a tap through them and they'll be just fine..

Re: 66 suburban build

Started smoothing firewall today..My brother inlaw drove up just in time to do some grinding Frame is in better shape than I thought so I'm gonna wire brush it myself and save some $ on blasting. Progress should start picking up again..

Re: 66 suburban build

Nobby--looking good.. Please take a bunch of photos of the roof eyebrow repair.. That's gonna (presumably anyway) be the toughest repair in my mind on my Burb.. I won't be to that point for a bit.. But like mentioned by others that's a common problem area on these trucks.. I will definitely be referring to your build when bodywork on mine begins..

Wiring and also started on the roof repair. We figured what would work best for us and cut the new panel in half,fit the ends and fill in the middle.

Am I seeing weld on the seam on the left side of this photo??? As you finish this piece up, please take some additional pictures or post them if you have them.. Glad that wiper mount was put to good use!

Re: 66 suburban build

Yea Hemi, I welded the seam.. If I don't like the look of it being smooth I'll just grind me a swallow 1/8'' groove to look like the factory seam..Thanks again for the wiper mount..

Re: 66 suburban build

Cool... As I was considering the same... Once I cut that part-depending on what's lurking inside-I may weld too.. It'll be another month or two before I get there..

Ha Ha, you got me..It slowed down some.I keep reminding myself I have 5 months to finish this thing for Cruisin the Coast. I'm gonna try to set the engine and trans this weekend. I'll paint the firewall soon so I can put the body back on. Then I think it will look like I'll make it
