6 Door GMT400 88-99

Hey all, been a while since Iíve posted anything on here. I sold the KIDHLR truck I build and Iím looking to build a 6 Door version of a gmt400. Right now it looks like it will probably be a 99 k2500 with a 6.5 turbo diesel. Iíve found some pictures of 6door suburbans of this bodystyle and a few long beds but Iím not finding any pictures of 6 Door short beds out there. Anybody on here seen this conversion before?

I guess I logged into the wrong profile. Iím planning on doing the stretch with the red crew cab pictured. Also have a 93 crew cab that weíre cutting up.

Got it back to a rolling chassis today! Next step is to start cutting cabs apart!

Re: 6 Door GMT400 88-99

Right now itís just sitting together. The drive shaft is in, so I could move it around the yard. However, there is more fit and finish that needs to be done before I feel I can take it down the road :-) probably wonít have much time to do more until the first of the year, but I wanted to push hard while the weather cooperated to get a nice visual representation of what I was going after. Iím a little excited right now, as itís turning out just as I had envisioned!

Well........"I’m a little excited right now, as it’s turning out just as I had envisioned!
"...........
...looks bloody great to me. I thought by the way you were talking that you might get the chassis finished by the end of the holidays. Man, you'll be buffing paint real soon.

Re: 6 Door GMT400 88-99

Tagging in to see if anything has been done since the last post or if the weather has put it on hold.

Either way, want to not miss the round of what is very interesting project.
