'93 OBS Suburban Frame Off Build: Body Removal & Getting Ready for Frame Paint! (What To Remove)
Here in the third Uncle George OBS Suburban build series video we pull the cab/body off of the frame! We show you everything to disconnect and how to do it. Next steps for the build will be getting the frame outside to clean it and prep it for Por15 frame paint! The chassis has to look nice when the Blueprint 632 big block chevy is ready to bolt up to it.
We hope this video was helpful and if you were entertained then thats all the better! We appreciate you.

      Definitely cool to see the process and as someone who has been working on cars since I was 14 and I'm 37 now you do nice work and I learned the same way by doing it. No fancy schooling no bs. *side note * put a ring on Logans finger she farts and works on cars she's the one bro lol

    “Nothing is a waste of time if you enjoy it.” Words to live by. Unless someone else is paying for my build, I don’t care what their opinion is.

    Oh hell yes! I friggin love this channel so damn much! I’m a car nut through and through and I love how you share as much as possible in your builds as well as all the awesome adventures you guys go on, keep up the awesomeness!

    • Stapleton42

      Thanks man! You’re always quick to comment

  • dodgefox5

    Just a word of advice for the POR 15. Get a cheap paint gun and just spray it. Takes so much less time. I used a brush for years and finally used the gun and what a difference in looks and how much less time it takes. Great job on the build so far.

    On those big stuck bolts pull don’t push you have way more strength pulling rather than pushing( 40 years in the gym experience). Love this series I can’t wait to see the front wheel come off the ground !

      You also have more control over how far your hand travels when the bolt breaks.

    "Nothing is a waste of time if you enjoy it." Love it! Can't remember how many times people doubt my builds, because it's not the best platform. But once you finish it up, just have to remember who stuck beside you. The others can be left in the dust!

    Uncle George is gonna rock the streets back there when this build is completed! I'd replumb it in -8 AN hose/lines and fittings to feed that thirsty big block. Logan is rocking that rattle gun pulling body mounts, kudos to her for jumping right in and getting 'er done! Excellent tutorial on all the stuff that needs to be done to pull the body off of a frame! I'm there with you guys as you conquer the rust, old hardware and dirtyass components, have been there & done that too! Big thanks to both you & Logan for another great video, keep up the good work!

    A like on the video for Logan being a badass. Love how she just gets in there and does stuff. This whole series is gonna be good.so I'm here to see it. Always get a little something out of what you're doing that applies to stuff I'm doing.

    I’m here I’m here. Just started and going to finish it on my drive home. If you actually watch and pay attention long enough we can tell when you are excited and not. We can also pay attention to Logan and if she is excited about doing stuff and throwing ideas out to make it easier is a good indicator of what’s going on. She is way different from uncle rob headlight days😂😂

    I’m loving this build, Helps motivate me to keep working on my gmt 400 frame off, I have a spare set of 454 ss mirrors that I’d gladly donate to uncle George

    • Stapleton42

      Thanks man. I actually prefer the standard mirrors oddly enough lol

  • jh1867

    I definitely recommend putting the top coat and follow the instructions on POR15. I didn’t on a truck frame and it was nice but the top coat I think would’ve made it look better. Just FYI from how mine went. Great video. Love the build.

    • Stapleton42

      We got the top coat!

    Love your content and how you’ve grown. It’s pretty cool to see how Logan is right there with you. She was kinda timid in the beginning and now just jumps in and gets stuff done. You two are perfect together and you can definitely see she loves ya by the way she looks at you.

    Love my Milwaukee high torgue 1/2" M18 Impact gun. It's a beast. Good purchase there Mitchell. I love these build and racing vids more than your "tours", but that's just my 2 cents worth. Cheers!!!

    • Stapleton42

      Thanks man. We appreciate that. The build videos do not do as well as history tours so everything counts!

  • Matt G

    Heads up big blocks in anything are a tight fit. Moving the engine forward 2 inches is going to be just as much headache as making everything fit as it sits now. Slot out the frame side engine mount holes, not waller so you have about an inch of forward movement if needed. New body mounts will help with firewall clearance too once you set the body back down.

  • Chuck G

    You're both awesome. I've always wanted a fast Suburban. I tried to buy a retired police Suburban that ran super strong and still had all the goodies in it. Unfortunately it was a bit out of my price range. It was super bad ass though.

    Mitchell you and Logan are killing it I watch all your videos have been for a while definitely a couple year OG. Just a reminder if any areas that you have the Por 15 on that is going to have any UV light make sure you use the Por 15 top coat I actually like covering all of it with it because it leaves it more of a matte OEM finish

    Almost positive you have to swap the columns to go to a cable style shifter over solid linkage.

    I'm kinda excited to see it done, I can't wait to see the looks on people when you pull up with that big block thumping under the hood!

    Thank you for the new content, I have literally now watched every video you have had posted in binge-watching the past month-and-a-half. Have you decided on a color or are you going to stay with the white to have the red white and blue from George, Rob and LsXcalade. Keep posting and I'm going to keep watching I'd love to see where you go with this.

    Commenting primarily to help the algorithm, but also to ask a (possibly stupid) question. What does OBS stand for? Love your style of videos and I think you and Logan are awesome

    • Stapleton42

      Old body style. It’s leftover forum lingo that’s survived somehow. The gmt800 used to be nbs (new body style) and the 900s were dubbed nnbs (new new body style). Thankfully they aren’t calling the current generation nnnnbs 😂 it needs to go away. But people search obs to identify this generation of truck so I still use it in places.

  • Doug Grenard

    Converting to the factory cable shifter will require a 95+ column, which won't fit under your dash.

    • madkidd00000007

      You can do a cable conversion without doing the column

    I am shocked that you got all of the body mount bolts off without breaking any of the bolts. On that era of pick up, you can normally remove the bolts on the front clip and the front cab mounts. The rest I usually have to break off on northern trucks.

    I just bought a clapped out 93 suburban. Following closely. Love it. Also feel the same about roadkill!

  • Nathan660

    A previous employer said that they used a linkage style column but attached a cable to the end of it like they owned the place, don't know if that helps in your case w/ headers but it may be viable. Also, mad props to Logan, I've been a tech (in one way or another for 20 years) now an owner, you just don't find many ladies willing to just Leeroy Jenkins into a task (in a good way). Keep it up folks!

  • James Hilton

    Keep at it brother! Have you also looked at the GMT 400 2500 series big block engine mounts? Not sure how different they are frame wise but that may make some things easier lining up and positioning (even thou you have a tall deck).

    .... 1500HD and 2500 non HD trucks will have the 9.5” 14b you’re looking for with disc brakes! And can swap out the 8 lug axle shafts for 6 lug pretty easy. My 2000 2500 had one. Good axles, I put in 4.88 gears then beat on it with a supercharged 6.0L and 37x13.50 tires.

    Have you considered sandblasting the frame and other suspension components and having them Powder Coated?

    • Stapleton42

      Yes but to do that we would have to completely take the frame apart and redo EVERYTHING. We don't want to go that far. Por15 done right is almost as good as powder for a fraction of the cost and effort. Wish we could do powder...but we have to keep things rolling.
