    Nice to see some interior progress.... does this mean there is a small chance Blue Overdose will make an appearance in Indiana this July?

    I like to see creativity , each of us have ideas that revolve around how we use our van...the one thing that seems we all have in common is a place we can sleep. For me mine has to be able to haul a bike in it 😆 so my bed area has to removable and have to have tie down points for straps. There is nothing cooler than showing up to a bike event and instantly you have a crowd while unloading and funny thing (no questions ever about the bike !) Keep up the good work Smiley and I'm looking forward to watching your progress !

    Looking good Smiley!

    This is the little universal kitchen thing I pulled out of my van. It was wasted, but I'm documenting the rebuild (dims, shapes, etc) and my carpenter friend is planning on producing them for the public. Let me know if you are interested in either.

    WimpTech... Precision Guesswork, questionable results.

    I've been in a slump, working on the van. Coming home from the Nats, I was recharged. Finding out I'd lost my job while at the Nats was a bummer, but now I have time to work on it. No money, but lots of time. I've been in the garage every day since we got home. Almost two weeks.

    Finally finished up the forward sections of the subfloor, around the battery boxes. I'm going with a stained wood floor over the subfloor.

    I've begun tackling the forward overhead console. I'll add pics of it soon.

    I've also decided that I'm just gonna have to learn to do the upholstery myself. Club member, Steve Miller, has been encouraging me to do it for years. He brought a few loaner upholstery tools to the Nats for me, so I started practicing with some material I already had at the house. I think I'm already getting the hang of it.

    Amie also made my door straps for me, with some material Mac found by chance.

    What th'

    Really sorry you lost your job Smiley.
    The NATS this year are over??

    Did anyone attend? No comments, pics, info, AT ALL?

    Again, Maybe folding the map in half and then place the pin for the next one?
