I can't remember ifit was on the suburban area or trucks. I believe it was on the Craig List thread.

Re: 67-72 Burbs and Panels 2wheel drive only

Hello to the group! "Woody" here posting for the first time as I'm newly registered, but have been viewing your posts for over 5 years and would like to thank everyone for the education on 67-72 Suburbans. This forum assisted me in the selection of my 1972 C/10 9 passenger project I purchased in November 2017. My time (with the help of a mechanic friend) has been spent on the mechanicals to make it road-worthy and dependable, but I have also began to buff out the original paint. The Beach-Burban photographs nicely, but when you get close, you see how much work needs to be done. I hope to include pictures next time, however, when I try to attach photos from my computer I get an error message stating that I have a "security token" missing. I am not real proficient in computer usage, but have attached photos to e-mails before. If someone knows how to rectify, please let me know...otherwise, I'll contact an administrator as stated in the error message. Thanks again to all!

Hi Woody - thanks for posting. I know that some forums require a minimum number of posts before certain actions can be taken. There may be a few posts needed before you’re allowed to post pictures here?

It's most likely that the picture size is too large.

Re: 67-72 Burbs and Panels 2wheel drive only

Thanks for the response Dale and fourspeedwagon...The error message did say that I was missing a "security token" so it sounds like something that needs to be "given". I'll see if I can figure out how to shrink my pictures and try that, however, my profile and avatar photos were from the same basic size group of photos and they went through easily? I'll also see if anything changes after I've been registered for a little longer before I contact an administrator.

Looks good! Welcome to the board. I would have done the same as you, get it road worthy and drive the wheels off of it....

Hello Woody. Nice to see another "Dark Yellow" truck on the forum. Looks good! I've got a 72 C20 same color.

Thanks Leon...That's the plan, load up the family and drive! At Christmas, I popped the rear seat out and drove 10 of us through our local "Christmas Light Area" (big thing around here). The grandkids piled in the back on quilts for the slow drive of our residential streets the way were did as kids...moving from side to side looking out those huge windows. Due to the 4 mph speed, our local law enforcement embrace the "spirt of the law" rather than the "letter of the law", so all was well...and safe!

I've noticed that, NewBayColony. It's funny that for being a "fleet" color, Wheatland Yellow isn't on more vehicles. Even nowadays, Chevy is putting out new trucks in limited numbers (something like 80 per state) as Wheatland Yellow special editions...and I still haven't seen any!

Thanks....after 6 years of ownership, it's getting there. Interior is 100% original. Headliner needs to be redone and the two seats need to be reupholstered. Outside of that, I'm not going to touch the inside....I like the "worn in" look, its just that the headliner is falling down, and both seats have significant tears in them.

My interior is pretty shredded due to the heat of the desert where I found it...but it keep all the metal dry and rot free! The headliner is original and in great shape but causes a dilemma as I'd like to add insulation!?! The Beach-Burban's paint looks good in photos, but closer inspection shows how all the heat killed the clear coat and rubber seals. Please add photos as you progress (or even your "before" shots)!

Cool...I'll follow your build with great interest! I'm a newly registered user but I've been lurking in the shadows for about 5 years reading and learning from everyone's post. It's a great forum!

A host is not necessary. You can post directly to the site. If you get an error it may be that the photo is too large, so a reduction in size will allow you to post it. Plus using a host means if your host goes sideways your thread likely would lose it's photos. All the photos in my WMB thread are posted directly. There are a couple of limitations, like you can't add captions to each individual photo. Do a quick search for detailed instructions.
Looking forward to seeing your Burban.

Actually you can, it just takes a little longer.

Up load your pics like normal

Name:  Capture.jpg
Views: 104
Size:  41.4 KB

After you do that, open the paper clip icon again and click on insert all attachments


Name:  insert all.jpg
Views: 104
Size:  37.1 KB

That will load your attached pics in to the text area

Name:  shows like this.jpg
Views: 104
Size:  38.4 KB

Type your text in between each attachment and put a couple spaces above and below your text so it does not get lost

Name:  insert text.jpg
Views: 104
Size:  31.5 KB



If you want to check to make sure you are captioning the correct picture just hit preview post and move things around as needed until you are satisfied. Once you are happy with it then click submit reply and done.

It should turn out like post 95 I just posted in my thread here
