Re: 1948 Suburban - finishing what dad started...

Another group Saturday on the 48 this weekend. We had about 5-6 guys come out in the snow and help us wrench. We were able to get the rear brake lines finished, fuel pump wired, tank and filler neck back in, installed window trim inside, reconfigured the door latches, and put in return springs for the bear claws.

The big win for the day was getting the motor and trans dropped into place. With that done we started piecing the front drive assembly together as well.

Re: 1948 Suburban - finishing what dad started...

So another work day today. Lots of sheet metal hung which makes you feel really good as it start to look like a truck again.

Rear bumper, running board, inner fenders, front fenders, core support, and grill made their way on. We did some wire routing and have a plan for cleaning up under the hood.

Re: 1948 Suburban - finishing what dad started...

We had a bit of a debate about the wheels, too. We need to have the rears painted and the black got us thinking. We're not going to run the Coy's but some of us like the black. Someone else felt the wheels should be silver, but others liked the purple. We popped the cap on to see how it looked.. we're all a little torn. Too much purple, black ties in tint and under the hood and grill, silver breaks up the purple... So I text mom since it's her truck; her call.

And purple it will be, for now.
