    We are glad you guys are here for the process! There’s a distinct difference in the kind of people who enjoy watching build videos and learning…vs the people who only show up for burnouts and breaking things. You’re our favorite kind of people 💪🏻 Channel merchandise here Stapletonautoworks.com

      It’s only fun breaking stuff if you’re getting it free. And I can do burnouts all day long if I wanted too. But I just usually only do 1-2 . . 😂

      I'm interested in this "future racecar" of logans does she have anything specific in mind yet or just gonna find something that jumps out at her one day and go wild on it???

      @Stapleton42 that's good to hear lol it's a big step especially with 4 kids 🤣


      @Stapleton42 stay blessed brother.

    • Stapleton42

      @robert ramus NC is great!

  • D

    This is gonna be epic. Excited to see it all. Also, if everyone had a relationship like yours, where you share a common interest and dreams, the world would be so much better and happier.

    • Stapleton42

      We agree. Thanks for being here man

  • patchedupdemon

    Making mistakes goes hand in hand when learning, you never forget what you did wrong. this channel just gets better and better, loving this longer video,hope you're both well, thanks for taking the time to not just time-lapse everything, and share your knowledge with us.

    Always enjoy watching you guys work. Guaranteed good times. As far as rust on the 88-98 gmt400 trucks, i have 3 and they are not nearly as bad as the 2 99-06 gmt800 trucks i have. The earlier trucks had better rust protection and thicker sheetmetal compared to the 99-06 and later models. And as far as breaking things....its all part of the learning process. I have broken plenty of parts in my 35yrs messing around both on others and many times my own vehicles.

    Right on, saw the latest post, am going to enjoy this build series immensely! Right there with you & Logan as you do a complete overhaul on this 29 year old 'Burban! Love the ad-libs, 1 liners and banter you guys add to each episode! Always appreciate your video quality, 2nd to none as far as I'm concerned. Both of you rock as always! Thank you so much!

    I love the interplay between you two. Favourite headlights are a thing. Been waiting on this project to be able to be started. I personally think using the older front fits the sleeper image ???? #SAWChequeredFlagSquad (C.F.S) watching every video to the very end !

    Huge props to the boss and her small hands helping ya with installing this monster. 👍👏👏👏

  • RebelRacer99

    That whole headlight situation was definitely one of my favorite parts of the Uncle Rob build. As for breaking shit, it happens. I busted a pcv hose on my Durango trying to vacuum out the engine bay of critter crap and acorns, and I've broken bits and pieces on customer cars at work before, usually bolts, although I have managed the break a few wheel studs. Most annoying one was a 99 v6 Pathfinder that I broke the brittle ass plastic heater core on by breathing on it while replacing the valve cover gaskets.

  • Helmersher

    This will be an awesome ride! Definitely prefer the later style grille tho. Keep up the good work, looking forward to see all the projects in the future

    • Stapleton42

      Thanks man

  • PokeDadTyler

    Jeez the consistent phenomenal uploads just keep coming! Thank you guys for your hard work and dedication. I know I say it alot, but you guys deserve to be told this. You guys work harder than most people on IRglo and seeing you grow is amazing. I'm so glad to be a part of the Stapleton Clan. Hope to meet you guys someday, you guys single handedly got me through my surgery recovery. Thank you. Much love from Ohio

    I remember how Logan had to fight to get the left headlight in and you would come over and just pop it in, so this is very funny to see her struggle with the right one. That said, not many people have mates that are in something together like you two.

  • Jmopinion

    Good to see the progress. Them headers are going to be tough. Your wall of merch looks great. Glad you got the Monty Carlo straighted out finally is sounds great.

    Logan keeping it real about the bolt bag! That was a good fart too, always quality content on this channel. The list of things I didn't screw up on a car is much shorter. Nothing like the box of mystery bolts at the end of a project. I like the living room, I also have a bunch of dicast in my living room. Can always be ballin on a budget, I did a few times so far.

  • dzlfumz20

    This is gonna be an awesome build and I cant wait for the series!! You guys make a great team! On a side note I'm not sure if you check your insta messages but I sent you one a few months ago and was wondering if you have an address or PO box I can sent something to? I have an old Yukon die cast from Matco that I'd like to give you. Keep up the amazing content!

      Absolutely the same story here man. My dads 95 was my favorite thing ever. It planted the seed for my lifelong interest in Suburbans

    I caught your Collier Motors video and I'm hooked. I have a '68 AMC Rebel convertible w/30k miles. It looks good from 20' but needs some detail work. Thanks for giving me the hope that I can do the work myself. Best wishes to you and Logann. Looking forward to the next installment.

    Freaking loved every second of this video buddy! watching it was like watching my video when i put the ls in the tahoe lol i also took the face off for a better look at the engine installed. i also dropped my front diff a few inches when i replaced my lower mounts and it was super easy, i felt logans pain lol that 632 sure looks epic between the rails and i cant wait to see the next video!!!

    • Stapleton42

      Thanks man. We’re definitely gonna pull the diff when we have the frame on the rotisserie and weld some nuts to the backside. Among some other structural modifications for future mods 😎

    I did the same thing with the transmission lines that go into the radiator on my first car when I tried to do an engine swap. Happens to everyone. All you can do is laugh and fix/replace it and enjoy the memories.

    I once stripped 2 out of the 3 threads for cam retainer plate in an aluminum block when removing them about 5 years ago. I don't remember doing anything wrong, more or less being unlucky lol. I had limited knowledge and tools, so when installation time came, those bolts were coated top to bottom in red loctite. That engine still runs like a top to this day

    Hahaha doing the rear end suspension on my bronco my dad (who has taught me everything I know on cars) clipped a brake hardline on the axle with an angle grinder n toasted it n I almost ruined the stock housing by going to deep cutting the stock shock bracket off! Fun learning experiences:) excited for this build!

    While attempting my first oil change on my mom's 1994 Saturn SL2, I managed to take off the transmission fluid filter and drain the transmission. The transmission filter happened to look similar to the oil filter and was near the side of the engine in these particular cars. Additionally when the transmission fluid drained it was black like used motor oil. After realizing that I had drained the transmission fluid, I found the correct bolt to drain the oil. While the oil drained I took a trip to the part store for ATF and a transmission filter. In attempts to finish the oil change and what turned into a transmission flush I forgot which side the transmission filter went on. Due to my forgetfulness, I accidently screwed on the oil filter onto the transmission filter side. The filter appeared to have been screwed all the way on except I didn't see the tiny gap in between the filter and where the seal sinks into flange. Incidentally the transmission filter screwed on just fine because it was a little bit bigger. After topping off the fluids, I start the vehicle only to find ATF spraying everywhere. I immediately shut the car off with the ground now covered in ATF. I had to craw under the car to find that I got the filters swapped. Nothing like having to redue your job a second time while laying in ATF. The great news is I got the filters correct the second time. The transmission fluid and oil got changed and I haven't screwed up this bad doing oil changes since. On an additional note about the rust belt, I live in Ohio and the break caliper bolts seized up on this same car. While removing the rear spindle do to the caliper bolts, I ended up breaking a 2 ft 1/2 inch drive Snap-On breaker bar and alot of Craftsman sockets. Rust wasn't kind to bolts on this car. I was not disappointed when she decided to junk it after the timing chain broke.

  • Wawawerks

    I learned the hard way about torque to yield... Never re-use those bolts, it will break. And you'll hate yourself having to retap your block after getting that lil shit out 😂😂😂

    I’ll tell you about the time the radiator in my 6.4 super duty started leaking again(third time). I am pretty good at swapping them out at this point, but there are 2 different length 8mm bolts on the fan shroud and inner fenders. I got them swapped up in the low light of night garage working and put the long one from the inner fender into the fan shroud, which punched the bolt through the new $600 radiator. That one hurt.

  • Chace

    Sincerely I haven't ordered new merch in a while.. but back when I did..I was just excited to get my handwritten note on a hand cut piece of construction paper. With a strip of Saw stickers that you guys said you would add if we rounded our purchase or tip to 69 cents. Nothing but love for you guys please keep it up because you're encouraging so many to do better with their lifes.

    A couple years ago, I was changing the oil pump on my 90 suburban, has the same 350 tbi you guys pulled out of uncle George. When I was taking the pump off, I also took off the main bearing cap with it which shouldn't be taken off to change the oil pump btw, and when I put it back in, I misread the torque spec in my Haynes manual by one line and went to torque it to 110 ft lbs which is the big block spec. Long story short, the main bearing bolt never made it to 110 and snapped off in the block. I'm turning 23 in a month and getting the big mistakes out the way early I guess lol. If Logan sees or hears this story, I hope she feels better when stuff breaks 😂

    Great job. I did my frame off on my ’98 Ram and put a lil 572 in em. Take one day at a time and enjoy the adventure. The end results you’ll look back on and be proud. Love the retro wheels; a bit of an ‘80s vibe. But with less farts. ALSO Logan’s Right Headlight with that cold side tube. Awesome

  • Joe Velderman

    I definitely like the '95 grill more than the older one. I think the lines are quite a bit tighter on the new grill and I like the color matched paint. Gotta also go with the '95+ mirrors though too.

    • Stapleton42

      I totally agree!

    Learned the hard way on checking piston ring end gap particularly oil expander support rings. Didn't pay much attention and had a ton of blow by and eventually broke a piston. Tore it apart found the support rings made a wavy imprint on the cylinder walls and sure enough they were butting. Sucked but at least i learned with hypereutectic pistons and not my forged Pistons.

    First lesson I learned the hard way when I started working on vehicles was unbolt the carb from the intake manifold before you start to disassemble it to swap out jets, floats or anything inside cause when those small pieces fall into the intake far enough you will then learn how to head gasket replacement to retrieve said small pieces hahaha!!!! 😂 It's part of learning
