Re: Working Man's Burbon

More window information. To remove the divider you must turn it 90* (photo) then lift it out. I made sure that it was on the outside of the glass to keep from damaging the window tint. The window channels that are readily available for the dividers between the fixed or the wing windows and the roll up windows is not factory correct, but seem to work ok. To install it you must scrape all of the old felt out of the channel (mine were so rotten it took less than five minutes) then the new felt piece folds into the channel. I am considering glueing my in just to be sure that it doesn't start to move. If you wanted a factory correct felt channel you can get the channel in longer lengths and cut it to size. (Restoration Supply or others) You will have to drill of the rivets that attach the lower mounting bracket and the painted trim channel (?) out, and then instal new rivets like you would when replacing the wing window rubber seal.

Re: Working Man's Burbon

If you do decide to use the factory style felt channel you will have to cut the channel in such a way that you leave tab that can be bent in the correct direction and then drill a hole for the screw. The passenger side screw hole has to be sized so the screw will self tap. In addition the same end of the channel has to be pinched smaller so it fits in the upper part of the frame. So if your chrome beads on the dividers are wasted you can replace them with new one. Mine were usable and my tabs were in good shape so I didn't need replace them.

That's not the correct part. The ones I got from Precision were molded/stiff and didn't need to be cut. It is close to what would have been in there in the first place. You don't have to rivit or cut anything to install them. I just squeezed them in from the front, went in very easy and the friction is so much that I can't slide them once they are in the channel
It looks like you have the top roll up window seal installed.

Re: Working Man's Burbon

Interesting I will have to look into this further. This is the product that came in the window kit I installed in the front doors. I am familiar with it as it is also used in my S10 doors. Do the felts you are talking about have the chrome beads too? Thanks.

Thumbs up Re: Working Man's Burbon

UPDATE: I have contacted by Prescion Rubber and they are working on new fixed quarter window seals. They have received the correct measurements from one of the members here and will send me a sample when they are ready. Can't wait! Thanks Rod. More to follow.

Re: Working Man's Burbon

The previous owner removed all the bump stops from the suspension. The rear was the easier of the pair, so I started there. I ordered the energy suspension black units 9-9109G for the rear. The factory bump stop is a pull through mount and the new ones are a bolt on style. I took a 3" x3" concrete bearing plate (from Depot) and cut 3/8" off of one edge and set it in the factory mount and bolted it down. Then lowered the burb and compared the measurements I made before I bolted the stops in. The drivers side was 1/2" higher and the other side was 1/4" higher. Not enough to to see but it will make me feel better.

Re: Working Man's Burbon

Its been a while since I posted but photos of me block sanding (for like weeks on end) are not very interesting. I am not a very effective block sander. I always seem to end up with more putty on the floor than I put on. But now the WMB has got professional help and things will go MUCH faster.

Good to see you are still plugging away at it....

I need to start block sanding the Panel Truck but I'm not looking forward to it. I'm not very good at it either. Unfortunately mine isn't going to get any professional help...

Keep up the good work.

Re: Working Man's Burbon

Scored a front seat frame over the weekend. It was out of a 75 Blazer and it is supposed to be a Flexsteel aftermarket seat from back in the day. It certainly needs buffing out, but for $25 I can't go wrong. Looking like a Buddy Bucket type set up for the WMB.

My secret for block sanding is books on tape. Makes it much less boring and with the right book I look forward to getting back at it. Thanks for the encouragement.

Re: Working Man's Burbon

Things have progressed to the point that it was time to apply the new seam sealer. The first photo shows it prepared and taped off. We initially were going to use the self leveling (photo 2) variety for the front and sides and the heavy body for the rear, but decided that the gaps above the windshield may be to large and the sealant would most likely run inside and not fill the gaps. So we used the heavy bodied on all of it. With this much seam to fill we worked in pairs to apply the sealant. Even so it was hard to stay ahead of the cure time. It came out OK, but like caulking I get more on me and things that I don't want it on. We used wax and grease remover to clean up my mess and to help feather edge it. The front was a pain to try and get smooth due to all of the misalignment of the rail and the roof panel. There is almost no channel on one corner (photo 4). There have been 2 pickups through the shop and neither one of them had the issues that mine has. And the last picture shows the final result.

Re: Working Man's Burbon

30 minutes of wrenching has turned the WMB in to the Redondo Beach cruiser. Sanding the jams, oh my aching fingers! It looks like the third door and the lower gate are the only original doors on the Burban. The two fronts were originally light blue and the upper gate was black. The front jams have 4 different colors in them purple, silver, green, and dark gray. Fortunately all that paint has kept the rust color at bay.

It looks like you have the top roll up window seal installed.
It took a little while (my fault life seems to get in the way) but I now have the correct part for the rear dividers. I talked with Derreck at Precision Rubber and ordered them direct. Precision doesn't list this part number (GRB 111160) for the rear dividers, but it worked fine. Thank you Notchback GTA. And kudos on scoring that rare Firebird.

Re: Working Man's Burbon

Boy I am so hoping they are going to be ready soon. Right now I only have one reusable seal. I could drive without one as long as it stays dry but the rains are coming. That being said I still have a lot of moves to make before the WMB is drivable. Like everyone says "Timing is everything". They got the jams and insides of the doors shot today but in my excitement I forgot to get pictures. DDOH!

Cool that you got the proper ones. I ordered all mine from GMCPauls, so I got all the proper stuff the first time, they really know whats going on, and I have worked with them on some of the Precision stuff that wasn't right for the Burbs's.
If you're referring to my screen name, I only sort of have a Nothcback GTA, I have the factory hatch, but no numbers matching vehicle

We dropped the 51 off to get the fender repainted (garage boo boo). And got there just as the painter was leaving and ....YIKES! I just wish the photo would show the color properly. Well it's not easy being green.
