Re: 66 suburban build

I am at about the same point in my '66 build. Got a 5.7 TBI/700r4 in it with painless wiring. Starting to do suspension and 4 whl discs now. Would love to trade out my barn doors for clamshell, if anyone is interested.

Re: 66 suburban build

Got out the spot weld cutter and drilled out all the welds on the rockers.I was very happy to find how good the inner rockers and pillars were in. I'll blast the firewall,jams and drip rails tomorrow and shoot epoxy primer on it while im waiting on some patch panels.

Great progress so far man! I'll be watching your thread so I can learn about all the "little" stuff for when I tear my 'burb apart.
