Re: 1969 Burb build-up (Bags, 5.3/4L60E, repaint, interior....)

Wow, damn, that looks amazing. Came out better than I thought it would look (not in fit and finish, but the actual look). Arse loads better than OE

Whats with the chevy station wagon pics? You gonna do the tail gate to open side ways and down?

Thanks for the compliment! I can't wait until it is painted. It would be cool to make it work like the wagon, but I don't want to add another 2 months to the project.

Re: 1969 Burb build-up (Bags, 5.3/4L60E, repaint, interior....)

I got the body to door edge built up for the drivers side of the tailgate. Also cut in body to tailgate gap. It's fairly close and will only need a little more fine tuning.

Re: 1969 Burb build-up (Bags, 5.3/4L60E, repaint, interior....)

(I may need to bite my tongue on this) I looks fairly simple after looking at it. So on the passenger side of the door, the bottom latch acts as a hinge for when it folds down too? I guess you could steal the latches from one. But I guess getting all the linkage, and hinging motion to be smooth and strong would take ages of tinkering.

Re: 1969 Burb build-up (Bags, 5.3/4L60E, repaint, interior....)

Got a couple of hours this evening. I finished up the drivers side tailgate lip. Then I built the jam for the passengers side. Should be able to finish up the passenger side tailgate lip tomorrow. Then it will be ready to pull the body off of the chassis. I still have a little more metal work to finish, but it will be easier to do with it on a rotissierre. Finally some light at the end of the tunnel!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: 1969 Burb build-up (Bags, 5.3/4L60E, repaint, interior....)

Tailgate is pretty much done except for adding bear claw latches. PCMCobrba came over and I got to test fit a set of 20" Coys. Looks like I'm going to need 4" backspacing to get the tires I want on there (these were 5") I also picked up a nice set of ralleys from him just in case I get bored with the "shiny" wheels.

Damn it! That looks too good not to do... Now you've added to my list Any chance we can see it with the back bumper on and full rear view with both gates closed?

And what are your plans for the tail light and taigate trim?

I'm going with Coy C5's too. Maybe 22x9 for the rear though We'll have to talk offset and tire sizes. Are those the polished?

It was a lot of work, but I think the result is going to be well worth it. 95% of the people that look at it won't know the difference, but that's kinda the point.

The wheels are polished. I used a wheel/tire measuring tool that I got from Mike at MuscleRodz. I came out with a 4" backspacing on a 20 X 10 wheel. PCMCobras were 5 or 5 1/2" backspacing. He had them mounted on a 86 SWB.

http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...d.php?t=240811

I think the difference being 1970 and back rearend are inch or so (I think) shorter on each side. Here's a link to his wheels. If I would have been thinking, I probably should have bought them for the CrewCab, , .

Rob,
Looks outstanding... I see there's 3 burb guy's eyeing up the same wheel. I'm with Mike on the 22 X 9 for the rear. If I could stop working sooooo much, maybe I could work on my burb & get something finished.

Anyone given anythought on how to do hidden hinges on the upper liftgate?

I'll take some pictures tonight. I am planning on using factory the truck tail lights and trim. I've got the tail gate trim and will see how it looks.

Best I could do for right now. Sorry for the green paint, that's all I had to get it all one color, .
Gorgeous! I think the tailgate trim will work well with the "truck" paint scheme in your rendering. Only one possible issue I see: The tail light trim might be lower than the top of the bumper, or close to it. That's why I asked for the with-bumper-on pics.

I wonder if one could install the whole setup a tad higher. I know it's too late for you, and yours look awesome anyway, but I'm just thinking out loud...

That's what you get for being a pioneer!!! Someone may come along and improve on your idea, but you will always be the first and we thank you for that

FF - It will be close for the one piece of lower trim, but if you look at the truck setup it's not perfectly lined up with the bottom of the tail light trim. I think I can place the lower trim right above the hinges and make it work. The problem you will run into with raising everything up, will be matching the body lines up (side) and the upper side trim (if you use the truck trim and paint). I lined up both lower body lines (truck/burb) which made the upper side truck trim hit the tail lights in the right place. I think that if you plan on using the lower tailgate trim, that since you are doing a one piece lift gate, you could lengthen the lip of the lift gate to get it lower to help with alignment. This is probably more confusing than help. I guess I should have asked you what your overall idea is,... Suburban paint scheme with truck tail lights or truck paint scheme and truck tail lights. I attached some picture of the Burb with some of the trim on and of some trucks for reference. As for being a Pioneer, thanks!, too bad my metal working skills don't match my ability to dream some of this stuff up. Good thing they make grinders and bondo, .

As a point of note also - I would probably paint in the rear silver section as well...I think it would look better than cutting the trim to fill out over the door seam.

All I can say is....wow. That is looking really good. And like you said, the general public won't know the difference.

OK, I finally got the CrewCab "stabilized", , so now time to get back on the Burb! My wife suprised me the other night. She was like, "aren't you going to finish the Suburban so you can drive it to New Mexico?" I said, do you realize how much time and $$$$ it will take to finish it before I leave?! She said finish it! Now I got to figure out how to make that happen.

NOTE: I started typing this 3 hours ago when I got a call from my 17 year old daughter saying she had been in a wreck. She said the car looked totaled!!!! We just purchased it new 2 days ago and it had less than 300 miles on it, . Luckily it wasn't her fault and she wasn't speeding. An older lady pulled out in front of her while she was going 45 mph and my daughter T-boned her. Seatbelts where on, airbags deployed, and the crumple zones did their job. No one seriously hurt, just some seatbelt bruises and a red face from the air bags. Thank God and the NTSB! Here's some photos or the car.
