I lied. I found more stuff to sand and smooth. It didn't seem right that I would only do the roof and bring it down to the belt line. Those sides and quarters started talking to me. So now I'm sanding both quarters and the passenger rear fender. I won't even waste my time on the drivers rear fender. AND, I have 2, maybe 3 weeks maximum to get this all done.

When I do get done with this latest phase, the suburban will be in SPI Epoxy Primer from the passenger doors on back. I'll still need to find a drivers rear fender and I'll still need to repair the lower back corners as they have the usual rot.

As always, pics will follow.

An American English wheel?

- If you have to stomp on your foot-pedal starter, either you, or your starter, or your engine, has a problem.
- The 216 and early 235 engine are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler.

That is a bicycle fender roller. A few years back, when money was tight, I got in to restoring old Schwinn balloon tire bikes. Hence the http://www.bunchobikes.com web site. These days I use it for multiple purposes. In fact, I'm thinking of making a narrow (1/4" wide) wheel to roll out the dents in my window trim.

Not sure if I'm happy with this or not.

New relay for the radiator fan with better wiring. Also, connected it to a thermal switch. We'll see how that works out today.
