Re: My new project the White Whale.

Snapped a few more pics of the seats in the truck. I also got my Dirty Dingo motor mount sliders painted.

Re: My new project the White Whale.

Thanks Joe. Trying to make some progress a little at a time. We should be setting the new 5.3 motor in place over the next few weeks.

Re: My new project the White Whale.

Nice work on the seat brackets! Did you get the front console to agree with the dash? Keep up the good work.

Thank man. No I will not be using the middle console from the 04 Suburban. I plan on making my own center console.

Re: My new project the White Whale.

Seats look great, wish I had a middle seat to steal brackets off.

I have the seat if you ever wanted to use that to mock up some new brackets with the holes in the seat. We aren't to far apart. The brackets are pretty simple and could easily be duplicated.

Re: My new project the White Whale.

Looks like you have plenty of leg room in the second row. Im sure that after fabing up all of this rust repair making brackets for my second row bucket seats will be easy. Hopefully Ill be driving it when the weather gets warmer. Lots of work still left to do and no time to do it

See you have a running vehicle that is rusty. I have a non rusty vehicle that has no motor or trans. Lets see who will be done first.

Re: My new project the White Whale.

Started cutting up some MDF for the center console over the weekend.

I'm going to use the stock 04 Suburban cup holder and this will also hold a newer single din radio, compartment for storage and an armrest.





I need to grab some more MDF to finish the other pieces.

Thanks Rob. I'm trying to get what I can now before it leaves to get the engine installed.

Made a little more progress on the center console last night.

Re: My new project the White Whale.

Test fit the console at lunchtime for the first time. Now it's time to go grab a radio/ cd player and make sure that all fits before I do anymore.

Re: My new project the White Whale.

Worked on the center console a little bit yesterday and made a little more progress. The radio just barely fit in the hole that I made and just misses the heater box by an inch or so. Now I just need to find a radio delete pate for the dash and remove the stock radio.

Also got the rest of the wheels in the other day. I now have all five matching wheels and tires. Just need to have the tires mounted tomorrow.

Saturday we will be bringing the truck to my buddies shop to test fit the motor, exhaust manifolds and oil pan, hopefully everything fits and we can start working on the cross member and getting the old fuel tank out.

Re: My new project the White Whale.

I'm slowly making progress on the center console. Waiting for some warm weather so I can spread some bondo filler to take care of my imperfections. Also waiting for a friend of mine to cut me a plate for the cup holders. I also cut the piece for the arm rest lid.



Hopefully the truck will go to my buddies shop this weekend and then we can get the motor test fit. Unfortunately last weekend he got tied up.

Re: My new project the White Whale.

Well the truck is finally at my buddies shop waiting to get the 5.3 motor test fit. Once we can determine if the factory oil pan and exhaust manifolds will work then we can make a plan to get the motor in and get going on the install. Can't wait to get this thing running.

Re: My new project the White Whale.

Here are a few pics from this past weekend when we moved the Suburban from my garage to my buddies shop. The last pic if of the new cup holder mount that another friend is making for me. I'm going to have some 3" stainless exhaust piping welded to the bottom then cap it off and use that as the two cup holders. Then I'm going to brush the stainless steel to give is a rougher look.

Thanks, I really like the wheels as well. I wish I could of gone bigger but this is what the budgets allowed right now.

I'm not sure if the truck is lowered or not. It looks pretty low to me and it doesn't have any coils in the rear. The front is what looks lower really and the engine isn't even in yet.

Once we can get it up on a lift we can check it out more to see what type of components are already in the truck.

Not much progress lately. The truck is at my buddies shop, he did a test fit on the motor last week or the week before and verified that the oil pan fit but still needed to make some adjustments to try and get the exhaust manifolds to fit without cutting anything. He said this weekend he will be back at it. Still waiting on the engine wiring harness and ecm to get back from Modern Vintage Systems. I'm hoping they ship out the wiring harness this week or the latest next week. I also need to order a fuel tank soon.

Doing a little work on the center console as well. That should be going to get wrapped in vinyl over the next week or two as well.

So I'm making a Little progress but it's been very slow lately.

How about you, any progress lately?

Re: My new project the White Whale.

Been making headway, I really need to start a build thread. Made new piece of plywood for the back and painted. Prepped and POR 15 rear section of frame, installed c notches, lowering springs, shocks/ relocation brackets, broke bolt in rear end and had to drill out. Picked up a new one and am hoping to install bolt and rear cover this weekend and finally install plywood
