Re: NJ Suburban

Finished stripping everything off of the body today. What a great Father's Day! Wife is in MN on business and my daughter had to work. No house work. No side jobs. No yard work!

All I have left to do is remove the hatch and tailgate then separate the body from the frame. Not sure if it will go on the rotisserie first or onto a rolling cart.

Re: NJ Suburban

Finished stripping and pressure washed the body. Ordered my first panels from GMC Paul's. Can't wait to start panel replacement!

Re: NJ Suburban

That body looks in real nice shape for this area. Good score on the seats too!

Re: NJ Suburban

It's been a while but I've been busy. The lower rear quarter on the drivers side has been replaced and work is progressing on the passenger side. The truck must have been hit on the passenger side rear as there was a half inch of filler around the tail light. I ordered a replacement panel but I screwed up and ordered the wrong side!

Now I need to splice the tail light panel to the lower quarter. I picked up a Miller 211 and the welding is SO much easier than with my antique "Silver Beauty" welder with four heat settings. The settings were 1-too cold, 2-too cold, 3-too cold and 4-blow a hole through 1/8" steel.

Nice score on the welder. We have one at work and love it! Someday I will get a nice welder to replace my Lincoln 100

Re: NJ Suburban

Off today from work so I'm back at it. Got the left side lower rear quarter done. Prepped and painted with KBS rust seal on the inside. Discovered that the right side tail light had a half inch of bondo on it. Patched the inner part with metal. I'm loving this new welder! Most of the prep work is done so hopefully I can get the patch panels welded in over the weekend.

Nice progress. I need to get a bigger welder too. I cant seem to weld crap with the one I have. It may not be the welders fault though....

I just bought a nice, older Miller spot welder. I can't wait to use it.

Keep going on it.

Re: NJ Suburban

Looks like your making some good progress.

Can the rear wood floor be taken out without lifting the body or taking out the whole back end?

A bunch of guys have done it and done write ups on the process. Here is one thread I found in a search.

Re: NJ Suburban

Going with barn doors instead of the tailgate/liftgate and discovered that the barn door back sill plate is different than the tailgate one.

So

Now you see them, now you don't!

Re: NJ Suburban

Just in time for the winter months the body is on my wooden cart. It just fits into the garage so body work can progress when it is cold outside. If it hadn't started raining I would have started cutting up the 2WD frame.

Gotta see how the new to me portable bandsaw works!
