1955 GMC SUBURBAN CARRIER PICKUP RESTORATION

GMC Emblem

 

This page will link you to the restoration steps I have documented along the way. I have placed the links in an order from beginning to end. Each page will have pictures showing the steps with a description.

Update:

I am doing my own body and paint work and there is a learning curve while I was able to paint my cab and it looks good from a distance I did not flatten the surface enough before spraying. So I have chosen to repaint the cab buying better surface prep materials and equipment I have been to a lot of shows and I seem to notice the paint more and my first attempts were good but I want better.

Enjoy!!
