Re: 86 Suburban w/ 56k miles

What is the story with these Chevrolet key fobs? I've seen another one with a 1985. Does GM match the original owner to the number on the key fob? Was this a dealer option? Is there any way to update GM records?

Iím not sure. My guess is this was the later version of the protect-o-plate cards.

Re: 86 Suburban w/ 56k miles

I was scrubbing the tank, prepping it for POR15 and found another build number. 83. Itís written everywhere: under dash, on firewall, on rad support, on frame. Pretty sweet that it is all still legible.

Got the new sender installed, going to paint the top of the tank with POR 15 and repair the few surfaces on the frame where the anti-squeak padding was holding moisture and causing rust. The rest of the frame in that area is still factory black and shiny which is awesome.

Next will be all new fuel hoses, gluing on the new anti-squeak pads and then getting the tank back in.
