    Quarter panels and the lower floors (thanks to that roof leaking),lower front fenders.Where all ways gone one this style wagon..

    Getting to see this van in it's den of creativity was a high light of my trip to Boston.
    Seeing it in person excited me and provided me with more motivation to get a few more of my custom mods going I have waiting for me to do to my own Early.
    Here are a couple of pictures I got to shoot of Number 9

    Franks attention to details,making custom mods look factory is going to set the bar pretty high for the competition.
    The other very COOL fact about this van is it is being built to be a DRIVER.......

    Headliner

    The headliner and the door panels and walls are made of upholstery card board. I used Velcro and push plugs to hold the headliner up the walls are velcro.
