Re: The Bufmobl Build

Also got the heater in, all of the sensors in for the Dakota Digital dash, new US Radiator and electric fans, inner fenders, battery box, etc.
Had to build an air cleaner system with a cold air box. It gave me a good place to hide the computer and some wiring.

Talking Re: The Bufmobl Build

Sorry about the pictures. Every time I rotate them, the web site rotates them back. Maybe one of you more computer savvy folks can give me some tips on this and how to post multiple pictures.

Re: The Bufmobl Build

How much Lizardskin did it take, how many gallons of each? Is it worth it? I was considering doing this instead of Dynamat for my build. I want to make it as comfortable as possible for my family and the hype around Lizardskin says it does just that

Re: The Bufmobl Build

Finally got some more done.
Gave it a face. It is so nice to use up all of those boxes of powder coated parts and new bolts. I like the way the billet grill looks but donít like how hard the hood is to open. I know they sell a cable operated system but the replacement latch is made of real thin material compared to my original. Also, anybody ever deal with one of these front bumpers with the fog lights. The diagonal brackets hit the lights. I canít seem to make them fit without surgery. Donít want to powder coat them again.
Now all I have is 4000 feet of wire to deal with.
Anyone ever try to drill a hole from the wire run channel, down the B or C pillar to run wires for power windows or speakers.

Re: The Bufmobl Build

Forgot to tell you about the Lisard Skin.
The floor, firewall and roof took 2 gallons of sound deadener and 2 gallons of anti heat ove that. I need 1 more gallon of each to finish the inside walls of the cargo area. I figure I will just put headliner on the wooden floor.

Re: The Bufmobl Build

I got a notice the other day about my subscription expiring so I thought I should write about my Burb (reupped my subscription too).
Well first the bad news. My job at Bauderís Hot Rods ended as Bob the owner died. It was very sudden, shocked everybody. (Cancer Sucks!!!). I miss him more than I thought I would. He was a good friend.
Now better news. The Suburban has more done to it and even burned a tank of fuel. Been working out little problems, leaks etc.
Had to move the rear end back 1 1/2Ē to center it in the wheel opening. ORD makes a nice kit. That means you get to make a new drive line. While youíre at it, why not fix the leaks the transfer case sprung.
How about you put new braided stainless hoses on the hydro boost because the ones you got from the junk yard leak.
Donít forget about your new Dakota Didital dash. Now that you have finished the new wiring, you need to run a separate ground to the fuel sender. (In a Suburban all of the wiring runs up the A pillar, across the side of the roof and down the D pillar).
Put new 37ís on it. Now Iím glad I changed the radius of the wheel wells.
Donít mind the rear sag, itís got a full load in the back. It sits a little higher.
