I showed up late so I rode my motorcycle for easy parking. I usually only go there 3-4 times a year unfortunately.

Re: "Sweet Pea" 1975 Cheyenne 20

SMS supplied the material for my 75 Scottsdale. My upholstery guy said the OEM stuff was very high quality but it had some creases that were hard to work out. GM called it Knit Vinyl avocado, gold and pearl white. I get lots of compliments on it.

Wow, that’s very nice! And it’s a GMC seat, I like those seats. They are pretty rare. GMC added a little bling to their seats, the little chrome hinge parts.

Copy, yeah same here... If you get the chance, come up to Penngrove on the 4th sunday of the month, we do our cars and coffee up there at the market. Not nearly as big as the Marin one, but still fun! And give a shout next time you see me cruising by!

Wow that looks awesome. SMS has some amazing stuff. Do you recall how much material you purchased to make the inserts?

Re: "Sweet Pea" 1975 Cheyenne 20

I saw where you had posted on someone else’s build, about a green steering wheel. They do have green ones from Forever Sharp steering wheels. I don’t believe these shades of green, would be a good match for your interior, but this is what I’m thinking. Maybe call them and see if they can make one. I did that with one of the seat console places. I sent them some of my left over vinyl, from my seat. And they made a console, that way it was a perfect match.

Great stuff, man. I’m taking a lot of inspiration from Sweet Pea as I plan out my own stock-plus build for the ‘78 Suburban. Really. Well done!

Thanks!! I appreciate that! I have been following your new 'Burb as well, I thought I had a solution to your wheel conundrum, but unfortunately Wheel Vintiques only makes the 16's in 8 lug...

Okay, well I guess it's all dependent on what's more important: hub caps or tires that don't go flat all the time

I should have gone that route. I tried and failed to make GMT 16" 6 hole wheels fit by cutting out the center hole bigger. My neighbor did such a nice job with his plasma torch. Too bad I didn't have him do just one and check it before doing all five I ended up getting disgusted and buying 4 used 15x8 steel rallies just to get going again since one of the factory alloy wheels had busted and I didn't trust the other three.

The price of the new WV 6 hole 16's per wheel isn't too much more than I spent on two sets of used wheels, but it would have been about $575 for five wheels plus shipping - what $200 or $300 to Montana ??? Maybe someday I will even do that if I decide to keep and fix up the old Suburban.

Re: "Sweet Pea" 1975 Cheyenne 20

Which Kicker 6 x9's and the 3 x 5's? I just got a surprise refund from mortgage co. so I'm buying new speakers. Already have the mounts from Big Block, painted them yesterday.

Bought a set of the cab corner speaker enclosures from BigBlock. Shot them in spring green and backed them with sound deadener. Kicker 6x9's.

This build is so awesome.

I have started again looking for a fairly unmolested square 3/4 or 1 ton just because of builds like this!

6x9's
Kicker 43CSC6934

3.5's
Kicker 44KSC3504

Kicker offers 4 different levels

QS, KS, CS, and DS which range from high to low in quality and price. I went with the CS for the 6x9s and a little higher quality KS for the 3.5's. They are little speakers and I didn't want to risk blowing them with amp.

Overall I'm happy with the sound. I think a sub would really complete the system, as it lacks much low end bass at all. But its crisp, clean and LOUD!

Those corner speaker brackets are cool! easy to mount too, just mark your holes and drill pilot holes first...

Re: "Sweet Pea" 1975 Cheyenne 20

The CS speakers, do you find them loud or clear enough? Reason I ask, my C20 somebody installed dual exhaust, which is a little louder I think.

Bought the amp through eBay, should be here some time next week.
