Re: new to the squares.....

Its a god awful purple for the time being but that won't last long. My plans include going through the front suspension and replacing bushings and shocks. Paint and bodywork are a must, new glass and switching to the suburban 1 piece in the top, new mirrors, and elimination of the mouldings and emblems, gonna shave the rear glass outside key monstrosity as well, Haven't decided on the tailgate band. Smooth and paint the top body color and of course redo all the interior. Im planning an ls swap in there too......

Re: new to the squares.....

Im looking for the plastic wire connector that attaches to the double/quad switch in the ds door panel for the windows. This one has been "repaired/modified" and is a mess.... New regulators and motors are on their way from classic parts but i couldn't find the connector. Any ideas???

Re: new to the squares.....

Someone on this side Of the forum makes complete harnesses for our trucks and does TOP QUALITY work with a lot of good reviews. I think his name is gmachines or something but cannot remember directly... He might be able to help you out with connectors.

Re: new to the squares.....

Search for GMACHINZ on this site. Great guy to deal with on whole harnesses or on component parts. Does not sell cheap aftermarket stuff. All of his stuff is either OEM quality or better.

I don't really care for the 89-91 front end either, looking good! Can't wait to see it painted.

I'm anxious to see it with that orange on it. It looks like a nice color so far.
