Can you dove tail a suburban??
Has anyone bobbed a sub before??
BOB tailing a burb has been done, I haven't seen a dove tail yet, but with enough time and body work skills anything can be done.
were the rear door(s) spared?? I want to do either, or, I think doing both would look bunk on a sub. I want to keep my barn doors.
I want to bobb my sub the the end of the truck is the end of the rear wheel wells. so I would have to notch the barn doors, and relocate the bottom hinge. Is that enough to paint a metal picture??
OH and then boat side the motha!
The bobing I saw was with a tail gate and it was kept.
The barn doors are going to be a pain to narrow to dove tail.
Boat side is easy.
I will probably end up removing the barn doors altogether if it is too much of a hassle, but I think it would look good if it was done right.
Yeah, I figure if I am bobbing the back end, then I will forego the dove tailing.
Hey, Imiceman44, did you boat side your burb? got pics??
heres what I would do. cut the roof off behind the rear doors.. taper and bob the rear and just ditch the barn doors or tail gate all toghter. and then taper the front...
would I even have to taper if I am planning to bobb the truck 6" past the rear tire?
As in: Rear tire hangs out the back 6" further then back body panels.
when/if I get a tow rig to tow my beast around this is what I would love to do to my burb. just with a full cage and tube doors and maybe some sort of tubbing out back...
this burb is sweet too... and the 4th pic is a front tapperd sub
I like that last pic, the barn doors are still there.
I like the look of a front taper, but I don't know about a rear taper. But I would like to do that blazer top grafting thing. It would be a good idea. But still, the way I want to do it is a little different then what I have seen so far.
how much can you remove while boatsiding??
I want to do boatsiding, but the problem I find is with the B pillar to floor strenth. I am going to go to the lower hinges though. Cutting the ass and the front is on the to do list as well, once I get a driveway
Not a front or rear dove tail but ...,ore info on build in post - http://coloradok5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=195677
i'll also be doing some major reworking the back end but haven't exactly decided how or how much.
I have started sketching out the looks of a bobtail.
But I want the original lines kept, so I am working on it...
