    Hey,

    2 Months ago I bought my first 2 door K1500 Yukon.

    It was a 1 owner car
    134,000 original miles
    Barn Find

    In the last two months, I've re welded the aging frame, replaced the Dampers (shocks), torsion bar, brake lines, rotor, calipers, drums from pistons to shoes, and the usual fluids, hoses, clamps, filters, etc...

    Next is to replace with OEM exterior and interior parts.

    My goal is to restore with minimal mods for modern conveniences.

    I've been here 2 moths already and everyone's posts have been Uber helpful.

    FIRST TEST : Off Road beaching down the OBX next month. Hopefully the project will be done in time.
    Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions!

    3 blocks from the beach tp home..... Sea Rust eats everything

    After I finish cleaning the frame I'm spraying it with Corroseal. It should provide a lot of protection.

    I'm glad I joined here. I'm already learning lots of cool tricks and tips for my Resto.

    And I appreciate any advice. I'm looking to make this as modern performing and reliable as possible while keeping the OEM look.
