Re: New project : 72 Suburban

This is a killer build you've done some great work with the sheet metal. Makes me dread cutting into mine.

Thank you. It was a lot of fab work but really wasn't that bad. I'm just glad that part of the build is behind me LOL

Re: New project : 72 Suburban

Last week while on vacation the Suburban touched the ground for the first time in almost 10 months. Got to drive it for the first time. Runs and rides great! This week I'm just trying to wrap up a few minor things and Friday morning we are off to Good Guys in Columbus OH.

That's a good feeling, what do you have for springs in the front? Stance looks great

Re: New project : 72 Suburban

The trip to Good guys in Columbus was great ! Bad news is when I got home the trans was leaking and had to be pulled out and sent back to the shop. Turns out that the bushing behind the converter chipped off somehow and got so hot it welded itself to the snout of the converter and had to be removed with a puller. The shop installed a new pump, bushing, and converter. Installed the trans last Friday and all is well. Shifts good and NO LEAKS. Now I'm ready to go to the Rockabilly Ruckus this Saturday !! Hopefully the new build bugs are out of it for good (fingers crossed lol)

A few more pics of the valve cover install. Also added some plug wires to make people look twice at what it really is

No problems at all. Most of my install was plug and play with a little wiring. The setup was a little confusing at first but once I figured out how to navigate the setup menu it was pretty easy
