Interior work has begun!

I've spent the last week removing, cleaning and painting the interior pieces black.
I've also torn out all of the carpet, and started cleaning the floors in preparation for the Durabak bedliner.
I'll post some pictures tomorrow-ish.
FYI, there's about 5 drain plugs in the suburban floor pan.

Re: Interior work has begun!

I will be following your progress as you post it. I have an 84 burb that I have a lot of work to do to. I am anxious to get started, as money allows. Keep us posted please.

Re: Interior work has begun!

Sorry, no pics yet.

I never realized how heavy three rows of seats, a Tuffy console, spare tire and carpet were until I pulled them all from the truck.
The suspension let up just enough to make it so I can't drive out of the garage. I only had about 1.5" to spare before, now I can barely open the barn doors.
Anyways, everything is out. I replaced the side panels and back door panels with 1/4" masonite, and carpeted them in black. I've also re-done the front headliner.
Tomorrow I'll re-do the back headliner, then put them both in the truck.
I got rid of the rear heater, it was worthless anyways. For now, I made a loop between the heater inlet and outlets. Later I'll get a heater valve for a truck without rear heat.
I found yourautotrim.com to be a good source for interior stuff. Good prices and super fast shipping.

Re: Interior work has begun!

rock, sorry i didnt catch this before, but when i restored an old jeep cherokee i got dirt ass cheap, i went to jo-anns fabric. they stock headliner material in blakc grey and brown...perhaps a few others. all i did was peal off the old sagging headliner material spray some 3M construction grade adhesive to it and apply new mayterial. look perfect and damn cheap too. they have some random stuff for things like that. also for carpeting, if you try nautical shops and boat parts places they have a lot of "invincible" carpets that would hold up well against the dirt and mud encountered off-roading. just a bit of info to ponder over for you

Re: Interior work has begun!

I laid the durabak in the back half of the truck last night. I put on 4 coats, and it is nice.
This afternoon I'll put the carpet and seats in the back, and wire up the rear speakers.
I'm going to have to wait til Friday to paint up the front half. So right now, I'm going around with only a drivers seat and seatbelt, not much else.
