Re: 53 Surburban "Family Truckster"

I worked on finalizing my wood floors some more. I always had the idea of making to seats modular, so I could run the 3rd row seat in the second spot. The idea is that I could hall more people and have the added cargo area in the back. Since I raised and widened my wheel tubs, I was not sure it would work. It did so I will add floors plates so I can run either the 2nd row or 3rd row in that spot. Attached is also one of the floor plates that I had powder coated in a wrinkle finish. Now all I need to do is router the floor plates into the wood, stain and then coat the bottom and sides of the floors before installing.

Thanks
Marc

Re: 53 Surburban "Family Truckster"

Here are a few Porterbuilt chassis pics. I've been putting a lot of time in on the chassis as well. The Accuair system is 95% complete. All brake lines and fuel lines ran. Pics of my Accuair mount and battery tray both curtesy of eBay

Thanks
Marc

Thank you, it should start picking up speed. I'm working on several aspects at the same time in an effort to get it on the road next spring/summer.

Yes, Jim that's exactly how they mount. I figured since the leg room wont be the best in the back with the notch it might make sense to run the back seat in the #2 position.

I'm trying brother. I have other parts like inner fenders and core support, steering column at the painter being body worked so it will be quicker when I pick interior colors. I have a stock pile of parts waiting.

Re: 53 Surburban "Family Truckster"

I got the chassis back to a roller. Boy this feels good. I have been pushing for what seems like a good month to get it to this point. I picked up these 20" rollers that I got a good price on. I plan on selling them once I pick out my new wheels. They look like they are touching the frame but they are not. I will add clearance with a different offset. The day after these pictures were taken we received about 3" of snow. I have started to bleed the brake system and I have installed the gas tank.

I also got a couple coats of ebony stain applied to the wood floor sections. I also finished reconditioning and repainting all the seat springs for the (3) rows of seats so that I can take them to the upholstery shop.

Thanks
Marc

Re: 53 Surburban "Family Truckster"

I hauled the body about 30 minutes down to my friend Jim's shop. Jim is my friend that painted my 48. He's got time and could use the $$ so I will let him body work and paint the interior of the Suburban to keep the progress moving.

I found these cool panel clips that work as anchor points for zip dies. These are great for areas where you can't drill a hole. Great for keeping wiring neat. I used a few along the back edge of my gas tank to keep my fuel lines tucked tight. With the watts link I want to make sure they don't get snagged. I think I paid $20 for the bag....

Tomorrow I will start installing my Altman latches.

Marc

Re: 53 Surburban "Family Truckster"

that should def help to have someone do the body and paint. I like the clips thanks for posting them. What color scheme you going with?
