Re: Project "Daa BURB" - 1968 Chevy C10 4X4 Suburban

Idea for 67-68 wrinkle black glove box...
I placed the glove box in direct sunlight for hour or so to gain as much heat as possible.
The hotter the better, very quick flash for solvents giving Very Flat appearance.
Quick and easy attempt using Eastwood's Alum-blast for edges and Krylon flat black center.

Re: Project "Daa BURB" - 1968 Chevy C10 4X4 Suburban

Pulled bench seats out to get reupholstered and cleaned interior in general.
Hitch cut off frame and dropped gas tank for replacement, it leaks and looks like crap inside.
Any preferences on who to order replacement gas tank from, steel or Poly tank?

Re: Project "Daa BURB" - 1968 Chevy C10 4X4 Suburban

Painted grill, dash & firewall after lots of sanding using stock color's. As well installed new grill trim on fenders and hood.
Time for dash installation and firewall items, get this baby on the road... the body work can wait till next year.
My helper inside, he's still learning how to use a wrench and screw driver, someday!

Re: Project "Daa BURB" - 1968 Chevy C10 4X4 Suburban

Continued cleaning, sanded wood floor down and cleaned floor pan up, installed CST horn button. removed needles and lots of stuff out of cowl area and from behind floor vents. Looking for passenger side 67-68 style floor vent handle.
More painting this weekend and prep for engine install on Sunday.

Does anybody on the board know where I can get a replacement mirror cut for the drivers side camper mirror? It's was shattered when delivered.

Re: Project "Daa BURB" - 1968 Chevy C10 4X4 Suburban

well if i was you i would just hunker down with some 10 cheapos.... until i had the cash to have someone make duplicites of the originals and recover each bench, starting with the front of course... you will be much happier and pleased with the out come.

Re: Project "Daa BURB" - 1968 Chevy C10 4X4 Suburban

New grill trim installed then finished cleaning all the old sound deadener and crap off the floor with some acetone. Started installing carpet after fixing some floor rust issues last weekend, then located the two carpet hold down strips I picked up from Sharpie. Next week motor goes in and install the newly black powder coated 15X8 rims with 33' BFG AT tires.

Re: Project "Daa BURB" - 1968 Chevy C10 4X4 Suburban

Just found the link to your build thread. Looks like a great project. My suburban came out of Arizona also. I had to replace all the rubber since it had been cooked by the sun. But you can't beat the rust free sheet metal. Can you post the exact size and brand of the tires you are installing. I am also in the process of trying to determine what is the best size tire to put on my truck. Currently a 265/75/15 is as large as I can find for a tire that is not an off road type tire.

Re: Project "Daa BURB" - 1968 Chevy C10 4X4 Suburban

Some progress.....
Dash near complete, just need to install ashtray and paint column/wheel.
Disassembled rear seat and painted brackets they looked bad.
Ordered set of braided stainless brake lines to replace rubber lines front/rear. Installed new rear axle hard lines and rebuilt rear brakes with all new parts.
Front wheel cylinder rebuild kit's $5 at napa. They want's $65 each for new cylinders, guess odd ball wheel cylinders on 68 4X4's sure ain't cheap yikes!!!!!!
