Burnt burb resurrection(sold it)

Overview

Alright heres the start of my 88 grand luxe burb rebuild. I'm a pic whore so there will be alot of them. As you can see its a great base to start with. this will be a DD/towrig. Main plans are (in basic order)

Repair all fire damage and clean up the engine compartment along the way.

Remove the fiberglass runners and fix any rust that has started ANYWHERE I can find it. Then get it all coated n protected cause I'm gonna have this one for a long time.

Once I see how she rides I'll decide what to do for a 4" lift. (52's or springs for front, flip kit or springs for the back??) I want it to ride like a caddy and still be able to tow a 6-7000 pound trailer comfortably.
May be an air spring system coming:rolleyes:

33's or metric 34's on 17-18" rims. Maybe rallys with rings, I havent figured that out yet.

Then eventually paint it. It looks good but I can do a better color/color combo.

Alright, I've had quite a few sqare bodies since I joined this group. As dueling says "I MAY have a car buying problem:whistle:" But I finally have what I've been hunting and shooting for. I picked up this CCSB last night. It needs a lot to be a good wheeler but its the body/frame/ suspension that sold me. Not to mention a little stupidity and inattentiveness. Its got a 350/350/208/10b/10b:doah: drive train. I didnt notice that it was a 1/2 ton driveline till I was half way home. But this...

Well, I thought I'd go ahead and start this one but it may take a while between updates. Some how I lost the pics of before it went in the garage. Space is tight so bear with me on pic quality. This is what I've compiled so far.
