I figured by adding a light it would make it seem like it had a purpose being there. Now I'm working on the side paneling.

    You got me inspired! I finally put up my dome lights. I am adding a third courtesy light in the lower area in the back,

    Got it all wired up? My next potential wiring nightmare is getting my wipers working.

    Yes, I got them up no problem. Next adding a lower courtesy light. Its an old nickle plated /glass light form an old Nash I think? I already ran the wire for it. But it will be going into the same panel as some speakers. I will need to wait because next I need to add the NOS antenna for the radio... I have been afraid to drill holes in my van! But I bought a new 1" bit today... so in the next little while I will be adding that beautiful antenna! It was the very first item I purchased after buying the van. Funny it's one of the last pieces to go on the van.

    OK, well, nearing completion of the interior, at least behind the cab. Interior work is hard! If I were to do it over I might just go with upholstery cardboard covered with vinyl! Bending the thin low grade door skin plywood for the rear corners was an adventure. Even after keeping bent for two weeks it still came out a bit too flat and had to be wrestled into place.

    I didn't like the way the new speakers sounded sitting down on the floor and wanted to raise them up. Plus they were taking up valuable surfboard room. So I put together these cubbies out of an extra 1x12 I had. Pretty slapped together and crude so I may re-do this in the future with a better design.

    Now the big decision is whether to paint the wheel wells and doghouse the same color as the window frames. I'm thinking I will. For now the cab will stay as "old original patina'd truck". But long term need better seats, dash pad, etc. etc.
