Help with new purchase

A few months ago I bought Ď69 suburban from member here, ranger danger. Great truck and making little changes to suit me. Itís a C20 with 454/400 and 3:73 in 1 ton housing. PO had installed 40 gal tank so Iíll live with the 10mgp. Just followed a thread on this site and install gas struts for rear barn doors. Simple job that took all of 20 minutes and love the results. I removed front roll pan and installed stock bumper. Now I need help with rear bumper. Itís got a real nice step bumper, but has a lip that goes up to bottom of doors so sheet metal panel was removed. Where can I find that filler panel? Also need help with locating late model rear seat. It has newer fronts with console, but rear has to be absolutely flat to sit up on raised rear deck area. If installed on floor, seats are too close with no leg room. I donít want to reinvent the wheel, I know others have dealt with this and need to know what year/model seat works. Thanks in advance, Bob

Ask richard2717 or 1rippen6 if they have what you need. Also tkorinek may have that part as well

Re: Help with new purchase

Im glad that rig found a good home. Too bad he had to sell it but sounds like you are an appreciative buyer.

Personally, I'm a big proponent of the '73-91 second row seats. The back part of the seat gets mounted on the bullnose of the step up and the bottom part of the seat is mounted in the lower part of the floor. In addition, the seat will fold completly flat when you need to haul 4'x8' panels.

Thanks, never considered that style seat. Iíve been looking at 3rd row late model seat to sit on ledge then build legs for front of seat. Iím really happy with the truck and drive it constantly.
