"Hey! I sound like Darth Vader!!
I did these a while ago but never posted pictures. So, here you go! Leftover ABS from the headliner job, leftover u-channel from the side panel job. Nutserts in the door, fancy washers under the stainless oval heads. The channel was short pieces so I TIG'd some edges together. The metal would just blow away if I spent too long on it, so the ends only got a quick zot. I like them, didn't have to body work all the little dings in that area of paneling, and they help protect the door! They also match the rest I did inside. I think I'll keep them!!

These look great! I'm working the ABS headliner at the moment. Thanks for the ideas and inspiration.

Thanks!

She's being used as a daily driver while I paint my Crew Cab. The engine is starting to smoke worse on start up, so as soon as I get back in to my daily driver crew cab, it'll be time to replace the valve umbrellas. I need to get the ignition wires tied up better and find a way to tension the belt better. I didn't quite place the tensioner in the proper orientation and I'm getting a squeal on AC start up. I should be able to take up some belt by going to a shorter version and using the adjusters on the alternator.

Alrighty! Well, it's been a minute or two. That good ol' Suburban did it's job. Got me to work and back home while I painted that dually. The moment I parked it and got back in to the crew cab, the CPP master cylinder decided to crap out. I still had the rear half of the dually to paint, bed, fenders, etc., so the poor thing got parked off to the side for a while. I still have more to do to my dually, but it can wait for now. Mid November, I have a show, Nitro Revival, where I will probably get called upon to dragster push car duties. Sooooo, time to work on the Burb!

Found myself a Wilwood master. Because it is configured differently than the CPP, that also means bending and flaring some new lines. And, because I suspect the rear caliper boots always rolled the pistons in when sitting, I'm installing a 2 pound residual valve in the rear line. The brakes always worked great, just required an extra pump when first stopping so the pedal would come up some. Hopefully, all this new stuff eliminates those issues.

This morning I found my valve seals and this evening I bent up the line for the rear brake. It is now installed. Maybe I'll have the front line shaped in the morning. Dodgers and Braves can be a little distracting. I'll take and post some pics after I get the new master installed. Once the master is installed, it will be time for a valve seal job!

Installed. Just need to bleed it now.
