finally put some color on this thing.

Hey guys just wanted to post a few pictures of my burb. hope to have this thing painted by the end of summer. it seems to be taking forever but slowly picking away at it. I put up a temporary paint booth in my shop and so far things have turned out pretty well.

I have owned this thing for 10 years and I figured I better get it done before my kids are all grown up and no need for a suburban anymore lol.

Re: finally put some color on this thing.

Re: finally put some color on this thing.

Here is a few more pictures. I painted the body on tuesday night. I want to polish the whole thing before I put it together so I have a few hours ahead of me. looks pretty good so far but I'am not so crazy about these new low VOC clears as I could not get the clear to lay down like I wanted. I polished the endgate last night and it looks really good but I spent about 3 hours on it alone. I hope to have the body rubbed down within the next couple of weeks but we will see.

Call and talk to James. The doors and front fender are the same as the truck. I worked with him to make the 3rd door and and the rear pieces. He made extras when he made mine. Let me know if you need any other information.

Re: finally put some color on this thing.

Thanks for the info Hart Rod but at this point I don't think I want to change direction. It would be pretty cool to just have the upper trim and not two tone it thou. I noticed on yours that you do not have any holes for the trim how were you going to put them on?

I'll drill the holes when I get ready to put the trim on.
