    Thanks, when I had the windshield out, it had a ridge of paint around where it had been painted around the rubber. I sanded it down and wanted to seal the metal with paint before installing the new windshield. I will probably remove the windshield if I ever get around to painting the Van. Not yet. Make it stop first, make it go, drive well, than pretty.

    I know it doesn't show but it has taken a lot of work to get it this far. Tires, wheels and tint are most noticeable.
    New engine, re-wire lots, fix parking brake and shift linkage, added leaf springs, new bushings, windshield, door hinges repaired, new exhaust, seats, seat frames, etc. I'm sure I'm missing some things and I still have more I want to do.
    It runs well and is looking more like I want it to.
    Thanks for all your help!!!!

    I love a good success story. I think I can speak for all of us when I say that seeing someone come around with a project and follow through on it, gives me a feeling of accomplishment too. It can be a lot of work. Great job!

    Looks great! I was on the fence with tinting my windows but this is selling me on it. Be proud of that awesome van and your hard work.

    Wow

    I agree with the others, the tint, wheels real gives your van a WOW factor, but the black paint around the front windshield blends in with the tint nicely. Nice work!
