    Cool my 1994 suburban c1500! Diamond in the rough

    Here's my girl. Got her in sept. 2010. She's still quite rough but ive been doing the maintenance and repairs it need before i work on the body and paint. She's got a rebuilt tranny, new suspension, new brakes and hardware, new tires, new seats, audio and video, all sorts of repairs to things that were rigged up, full tune up (batt, belt & tensioner, plugs, filter, oil changes), and most recently... THE A/C!!!
    She still needs a new headliner, drivers door panel, dash pad, bumper filler, and a new bumper. Body is all dinged and bumped, when all thats fixed im thinking of going summit white with a diamond blue pearl!
    Enlisting in the army next week so we'll see where we end up! lol

    Looking good, the clear headlight's really clean up the front end. I would swap the altezza tail lights for a set of OEM red ones IMO. Any thoughts about new rims down the road? How much did you pay?

    Well I bought the truck for $900 because of all the work it needed. And yes I'm going to swap the tails for some oem style led lights, I hate clear tails personally. I've been fixing the broken stuff before I do the aesthetic part of it. It also had horrible blue seats in there that someone had put in and half didn't work. I got a great deal on gray leathers so I put those in. Captains fronts (converted the passenger to power also) and second/third row bench. The front need the seat recovered but the backs are great. In the faaaaar future, once my new tires wear, I want some 18s with the same setup 31.5x10.

    Here's a couple of my seats. Front drivers is the really bad one that needs seat recovered, passenger is just worn. The backs are near mint!

    Wow, for $900 that's certainly a steal. Those seats look great!
