    Well the holidays and bad weather are here ,When the sun shines the van will get a cruise even if it's cold.Heres a pic of her in the garage I have been doing a ton of things to my van (after it came out of the bodyshop in feb) I am trying as allways to do as much as possible myself and feel I have got alot done this year.I have a winter list of things to do on the van but I thought I would just post them as I go.Rear chrome bumper (just redone ) off ebay will be here monday, and I had the new rubbers and all that stuff put put on the vent windows out of parts van I have so soon I will take the door insides apart and install along with a good drivers window regulator
    Havent seen alot lately on the photo forum so maybe a few pics from all would be cool Thanks all.

    pictures are good bill. we all like pictures.
    the van looks great. i love the color and the way it "sits" you have done a real nice job. what are your plans for the interior? i would suspect that might be on your radar screen for a winter project. keep them photo's coming. john

    sounds like a full plate bill, and it's the little things like that list which don't get done unless you just plain get to them. you have plenty of time, and i'm looking forward to seeing your progress. john

    Vent windows are done and ready to install in the van.New rubberseal,channel run division seal.I used a small wire wheel on the air tool and stripped the metal sanded lightly and used a quality trim spray.Then on the lower section painted with zero rust.

    Only took about 29 minutes a window to tape them up carefully.
