Re: The Family Truckster- 66 Suburban Build

Stripped the interior and firewall today on the Burb and finally got rid of the old carpet that was stinking up the interior. Iím going to clean up the dirty firewall and see if I can get away with not painting it right now!

Re: The Family Truckster- 66 Suburban Build

I'd vote for paint. Exterior, frame, suspension all look great. Bet the engine will too. Firewall may look out of place with everything else shiny. But then I paint the insides of the doors and do other OCD things.

Re: The Family Truckster- 66 Suburban Build

I agree, paint the firewall on the cowl area to better match with the exterior. The outside paint looks good in the pictures, just go ahead and paint it while you have it all apart. You might regret it later if you don't.

Thanks guys, I hear what your saying and will probably end up painting the firewall anyway. We'll see, have to get it cleaned up first.

It just needs cleaning & freshening-up. No need to go full tilt. Scrubbing & some cheap satin paint would work. Rattle can even (that's what I did for my dually where it was fubar).

Building a small, high rpm engine
with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive...
like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol....

That's exactly what I did on my GTO while I was in college. I didn't have the budget or experience to do the metal work on the firewall, so I just cleaned it up and used some rattle can paint. It didn't look bad either, just don't use cheap paint.
