    It's been a while.

    I couldn't wait to get home from the Nats to get back on the van. Two days after getting home, I started work again and didn't have a day off for fifty-something days. Ugh.

    Back when the van was at Mac's house for the build, sumthin happened. We were installing the brake system and had the front of the van on jackstands. Without paying attention to how high we had it up in the air, I opened the garage door. The automatic door mechanism just about tore a hole down the roof. We didn't tell anyone. The sound was awful. Several years later, I was finally able to get the van back in at Joel's plave to make it go away. Two weekends ago, I drove the van over (yes, I drove it 60 miles each way). It drove perfectly.

    The gouge had been touched up in 2017 so it wasn't as obvious for the indoor car show debut.

    In about four days, it was back to its proper self. I'm still amazed (acutally amazed, not conversationally amazed) that you can't tell it was ever there. He was able to blend the flake in perfectly.

    Getting it out for a long drive two weekends in a row really made me miss driving this van every day.

    Yesterday, in a fit of frustration, I got out to the garage and cut down all the floor boards to fit. In this photo, they are sanded down smooth, so they're glasslike but dull.
    I can now spray them with the final passes of clean and install them.

    Beautiful work. You should be very proud of what you’ve accomplished with this van. I remember where you started. All amazing work.
