    85 suzuki sierra buildup (robo jnr's)

    Post  Robo Jnr on Mon May 10, 2010 1:42 pm

    how you all going.

    just want to introduce myself and also put a bit of info up about my 85 sierra that im fixing up.

    This car will be my first car. just after christmas i purchased the sierra for $1000. my plans where to fix it up and get it regoed.

    so far we have sanded back and painted the rims white. fixed up a few small electrical problems and just little bits here and there. the dash has been completly resprayed with grey and gloss black. and the first coat of primer has been sprayed over the car. I also have a rollbar that arived a few days ago from the sunshine coast. cost me $150, what a bargian!!!. since the car did not come with a softtop it sorta gave me a few chioces. and i have decided to go with the ute style softop with out the tornuee cover as the rollbar prvents me from using it. so we have to build half a false wall upto the top of the tub so i can attach the rear bit of the softop to it.

    probably a few things i have missed but i will update them later..
    Pics will also come later on.

    Hey nice Sierra there mate, I love Claws my mate is running them I swear they make up for lockers in the mud lol. Thanks for the comments, yeah my last Sierra was a soft top I did run 33"s for a while but settled on 31"s. Cant get 33"s engineered but may consider running them on my new Zook for certain trips.
