Rusty OBS Suburban Frame Restoration & Paint: Uncle George Goes On The Rotisserie! (GMT400 Build)

Quite a long process and a LOT of work here but we finally have Uncle George's (our 1993 GMC Suburban) frame painted and ready for reassembly! We pulled the body off in the last video and rolled the frame outside to pressure wash it extensively and knock off all the loose rust accumulated over 30 years and 335,000 miles. Logan spent several hours every day with the air scaler getting the surface right while I pressure washed and stripped the frame of all remaining wiring and lines. We bolt it up to a rotisserie to do all three steps of the POR 15 process! The finished product is ABSOLUTELY worth the effort! We can't wait to get to putting everything back together and get the 632ci big block chevy stuffed in there!

      Agreed! She is awesome!

  • gac914

    Absolutely Logan should have more of the commentary, as she's (pretty-sure more than) 50% of the team!! 🤣

  • Jennifer Houlihan

    Hey guys, love the build!!! Logan totally needs to tell us what’s going on while she is working, she is a heck of a worker! Keep it up Girl!! Let me know if Ruger shirts come back he is a total cutie!!

    Awesome video, personally prefer the longer one, so much content, also worth the wait. You guys work so well together. Thanks guys Paul 🇬🇧

      I agree about the longer video’s! Just miss seeing them each week

    You two always make me smile the whole way through the video... Thanks, guys...

      Thanks man that’s really great to hear.

    Good work you two. So is there a reason you didn't choose to sand blast the frame clean? Maybe I missed that. Lookin good though. Logan is a trooper.

  • Stuart Burden
    Stuart Burden

    No words really, you two are the most incredible duo... you got this! Mitch and Logan, you are virtually unstoppable now... keep right on Rolling! Very best wishes to you both, you're simply awesome! Take your time, get this build right. Perfection pays off in the end. Stuart from Exeter, Devon, England...

    When you go to re line the brake system, do yourself a favor and use the nickel copper brake line. Pretty, bends easy, flares easy, and is rust proof, corrosion proof. A quality flare tool will also make your life much easier. Hydraulic mastercool deal is the best I’ve ever used on/off the vehicle.

    • Bruce Grunewald
      Bruce Grunewald

      I thought they used steel because it doesn't stretch and cause spongy pedal. Then I thought about all the flexible hoses, so I'm not sure. Does anyone know why brake lines are normally steel?

  • dystemper

    It's cool seeing Logan's point of view the memories the two of you are making together are going to last a lifetime

  • Steve Mcafee

    Awesome video Mitchell and Logan great job showing all the hard work and yes let Logan take over she comes up with some great one liners lol

  • James Bailey
    James Bailey

    Unsure how far along you are, aquire the best flaring tool you can afford to make it easy. It ain't that scary. Bending tube correctly is more frustrating. You always apply yourself and overcome. Great job!

  • Mark Miller
    Mark Miller

    Cool! Glad to see you guys getting the frame cleaned up and prepped! Logan is absolutely rocking this frame cleanup work, she works her butt off as well as you do, Mitch! Pretty easy to flare tubing, brake line requires a double flare, practice on an old piece of steel line to get the hang of it. The rotisserie makes life easier doing big jobs like this. Keep up the good work! Always know I'm here with you guys in each episode, love to see your projects and what it takes to complete them, and the end result is always badass! Thank you & Logan for being here and taking the time to film video footage, and provide us with the best content out there! Be safe and looking forward to the next installment! Might want to consider putting the powertrain in before reinstalling the body......just a thought!

    • Stapleton42

      Thank you mark. That’s our plan!

    Love it when I get notifications of a new video! And love the advice about taking the time to do it right the first time.... if I had learned that 10 years ago I would be in much better places 🤣🤣 Also, my order just came in from you guys! Shortly the wife's Tahoe will be rocking some SAW gear! And it's not stock, in true SAW fashion...

    • Stapleton42

      Thanks man we appreciate you. Glad to have your Tahoe on the team 💪🏻

    Logan rocks and it’s a lot easier to flare hydraulic brake lines with a hydraulic flaring tool if you wanna spend the money

    • Mike Scherrer

      and safer.

      Brake lines have to be double flared.

      A mastercool hydro flare tool is the best investment I made in my tool box fuel line trans line and brake line have never been easier

    Love to see you both collaborate together to knock out your projects, so yes more Logan please! Keep up the great work and content, you two are a great match for each other. 🍻

    Great job on the frame for Uncle George! I've used POR15 for years and love it, it is a chore to do with all the steps, but the end result is unmatched. Y'all take care and see ya next vidya..........👍

  • jwcarterjr2

    As a Detailer, I have to agree. It’s extremely satisfying to see dirt and grime just disappear with a power washer and steamer.

  • Brad Jackson

    Whenever you go to weld those cracks up make sure to drill a hole where the crack stops this will help to keep the crack from spreading or so I've been told

    Frame looking good! I wonder if that por last as long as a powder coated frame. Logan found a new friend officer Oreo 😂

  • Team Brahma
    Team Brahma

    Just went thru the whole frame cleaning/blasting/painting thing, rotisserie and all. It's a job, but it's worth it. And yes to Logan doing narrations and things - I love that she gets right in there and helps out.

    • Stapleton42

      It should if we did it right lol. Hopefully 😂 thanks man

    Can't wait to see it finished I just started watching your videos for a week but binge watched all your episodes love how you keep it real all the time keep it up btw suck it cole

    • Stapleton42

      Thanks man. There’s lots of good information in the older stuff so we are glad you’re watching it!

  • Craig Maverick
    Craig Maverick

    The frame looks awesome! I love watching the progress. I guess I took the easy way out on my Bronco frame. I had the powder coat guy sand blast it before he powder coated it. It saved me a bunch of time for about $700 bucks.

    • Stapleton42

      That’s the way to do it


    No need to apologize Stape, your always working so its no biggie for a delayed video.

  • MrRay55

    I think I might need a new shirt. The frame came out great. Patience is truly needed during projects like that. Great work.

    • Stapleton42

      Thanks man 💪🏻

    Late to the party, I found steel wire brushes at the business end of a drill body or grinder make short work of surface rust on frames.I did a body off on my 73 vette frame and it came out nice enough for rust neutralizer and paint.There are various styles of wheels to get in tight spaces.

    • Stapleton42

      Great tip!

  • James Denny
    James Denny

    As always. Watched from start to finish. Yall are awesome and doing great w the builds. Gonna have to order the new boom tube shirt now.

      We appreciate you James 💪🏻

    Cutting and flaring brake lines is an easy skill to master, you just need to make sure to double flare and take your time.

    Oh man what an awesome video to watch while I'm working on my GMT400 Tahoe 🤘 As an RC guy myself its cool seeing ya get into them and I'm here to help in anyway I can as I also moonlight for a little something called RCSparks

    • Stapleton42

      Heck yeah. We’re gonna mess with the LMT a bit in the next video 💪🏻

    Definitely going to pull the body off on my 70 D100 and do the frame. I'm moving into a house with a shed and a garage. Finally, I'm going to be able to go overkill on my bulid

  • David Callender

    Needle guns are just as satisfying as pressure washing. (One of my favorite things while in the shipyards when I was in the Navy.)

  • Hammerbeach

    It's wierd seeing Derek talking normally😁 good job on the frame!

  • Ray Russell

    Logan is a super star all that hard work she put in on everything she does I don't of any women that would do that work she is definitely a rare one I would say you need to make sure your there for her for what ever comes along you two are a awesome team. God bless you guys and as always be safe 👍

    • Stapleton42

      Thanks man. We appreciate you!

    I always know (or at least I know) when you're up to something big. People don't know how much work putting video's out takes so when you don't post for awhile there's going to be something good coming. Keep up the great content and interest stuff.

    • Stapleton42

      That means a lot man. You know the deal.

    POR has a reducer as well that works excellent for clean up. You can also spray this stuff.

  • Joe Cameron
    Joe Cameron

    I like the longer video. That way I can find it easier to watch again. It's a lot of work I did an s10 frame I used a drain auger with links of chain to clean the inside. I also boxed the frame before I started painting. It's definitely worth it. Logan deserves a ring. She just dives right in

    • Joe Cameron
      Joe Cameron

      Reason I did is 6.0 ls will be unnaturally aspirated. It's a conglomeration of the best stock parts plus some fun parts LOL.

    • Stapleton42

      Considered boxing the frame but I couldn’t justify the time it’d take to do that for what the truck will be used for lol

    I love your time lapse music. It totally reminds me of any 80's movie where the 'crew" is driving around downtown, looking in every alley looking for Jimmy who stole the bosses money cuz his girlfriend needed an operation and they have to find him before the boss finds out or they're all done for! hahaha

    The couple that builds together and builds cool shit stays at the top of my playlist.

    • Stapleton42

      We appreciate you man!

  • deegan727

    I just did this to my K5 Blazer (without a rotisserie☹️). I used Chassis Saver paint though and used a sand blaster attachment for my pressure washer. It was a huge mess as expected, but the the results were great. I’m now doing body work. Looking forward to the coil over conversion. After the turbo LS swap I’m wanting to do F/R coilovers and links.

    • Stapleton42

      I may have to look into the sand blaster pressure washer thing… 🤔

    I love it that you used it exactly like por 15 tells you I did this on part of an f250 frame if you do what they tell you it will last forever

    • Stapleton42

      bingo. people complain when they don't prep right

  • Benny Helgeson

    Love the new OG Hat black and white and the new boom tube shirt, already bought both! Wife wants to know if there is enough people that want shop dog shirts to bring more in? Love the content! Missed seeing content, understand why. I check your channel first everyday. You guys are doing a Great Job and Thank you for sharing your world with all of us!

    • Stapleton42

      Thank you Joe! We are working on doing another shop dog shirt!

  • John Z
    John Z

    Yep, wearing Tyveks when doing that painting is/was a good idea. If the paint were to come off your skin wouldn't a guy or gal think it would come off the frame? Of course it is made to STICK FO-EVAH :)

  • David Messer

    You should invest in a dustless sand blaster from harbor freight or a sand attachment for the pressure washer a Lil messy but gets the job done.

      Thank you Cory it means a lot to us

  • PressCorpse

    Curious if classic tube has stainless brake lines for this model ? Going through all the hassle of taking off the old ones, may as well put new brake lines on there. Also, any thought put into boxing in the frame or ha doing a coilover conversion prior to painting?

  • lawrence beeler

    Some times they are called a needle gun and if you ever spent any time on a navy ship you would be very familiar with this tool for the same reason you are using it

  • Jasen Worrell
