Re: Project "Mid Life Crisis Low Rider Burb"

Looking good George!

Followed your advice and am checking this thread out..... it looks like the TBI gas tank doesn't hang too low at all, I can't see it at all in the recent shots. Do the lower rear quarters hang lower than the tank, or is it actually possible to see the tank peeking out? Does it seem like there will be any interferences with the tank and the ground when you finally lay it out?

I'll do some more searching, but what was the secret to centering the rear axle? It doesn't look like you modifield the trailing arms, so I'm guessing that you moved the crossmember/front hanger back an inch or two??

Re: Project "Mid Life Crisis Low Rider Burb"

I am going to get my burb today so Ill see how the heght of the tank is to the 1/4s, I dont remember off hand. I flipped the trailing arm brackets to the carrier beam and put 1/2 inch plates between to center the wheels. I copied somebody elses thread for that info and it worked out. I cant remember whos at the moment but Ill give them cudos later.

Re: Project "Mid Life Crisis Low Rider Burb"

Lookin' sharp!

If you can get a nice side profile shot to show the gas tank relative to the rear quarterpanels I'd appreciate it.... still trying to figure out a gas tank solution for my own '72.

Thanks.

Re: Project "Mid Life Crisis Low Rider Burb"

I Love the paint! I have a question though, why did you route your serpentine belt that way? I have the same brackets on my stock 91 and it looked odd to me so I checked and this is how the diagram shows on my truck.

I was too lazy to walk out to my 89 burb and look at the diagram so I just guessed at the routing. Thanks for the correct routing pic, I will change that.

I did get my 3/4 ton to 1/2 ton conversion drop spindles from ECE after a 5 month wait so I will be getting rid of those huge 8 lug rims.

Re: Project "Mid Life Crisis Low Rider Burb"

Wow that was a long time! My burb has been sitting in the garage for 1 year with no time to work on it. I did manage to tint the hatch, rear and back door windows. The hatch and tailgate are installed. I finally got my 3/4 to 1/2 ton drop spindles installed with all new brake componets. No more monster 8 lug rims! Unfortunately I have some door, fender and hood gap issues. My body guy should be buffing it shortly. I bought all new door handles, locks, window regulators and tail light,side markers lenses. Its time to insulate and install all the door guts next. After that I plan on insulating the rest of the truck and installing my new Autowire wiring kit. Next weel I'll roll it outside and snap a couple of pice.
