I know rear A/C will be a bunch more load but I have a idea for a improved condenser and how I can improve air flow over it if I need it. I don't think I will get to it this summer. Work has really limited how much I work on Old blue but I do get to drive it everyday so it balances out.
Thanks for the update. I'd say that was the ultimate test. 117 WOW thats cookin!

What did you use to strip the paint off that good. It looks totally brand spanking new!!

Paint was the easy part. The anodized coating took a bit more work. I started with paint stripper for the black. The coating was taken off with oven cleaner and then I hit it with metal polish. It was a bit of work but in all totally worth it in my book.

Re: Ol Blue

I just bought I suburban like yours.... kinda.. I think I'll wait till I've had it at the house for about a month and then start a thread. Then people will be all like "wow that guy is really talented, he changed the door lock knobs in the same day he got them!!!!" Just saying

Re: Ol Blue

Just saw your a/c set up, best I have ever seen. Now that I see one I like, I may even consider one for my build. But we don't live in the devastating heat you do. 117 degrees is what we bake potatoes at.

Re: Ol Blue

That is such a nice truck ! It deserves that pretty front grille. The hard work was really worth the time !!

Sorry about the late reply.
Life has really been cutting into my hobby time. For the most part I have just been driving it. I did a little update with the transmition pan and swapped
Out the wheels and caps. New tires have raised letters so I thought black rims might set it off

Re: Ol Blue

Looks great! Glad to hear you are getting some use out of your 'Burb! I drive mine way more than I work on it. I'd love to do more to her, but time and money seem to be in short supply.
