You know 1Flyfisher, if your heart is set on frosted bulbs and you can only find clear ones, you could have someone carefully sandblast some bulbs for you or you could put some Hydrofluoric acid on the glass. (It's found in some anti-theft glass etching kits or some of the glass artwork kits like you'd find in craft stores) Either would frost the surface quite effectively. (BTW, don't *ever* get HF acid on your skin; it's extraordinarily painful!)

Do you have any pictures of your new 2010 van yet? It would be so awesome to not have to wade through all the repairs so many vintage vans require.

What's the white van in the background of your lamp pictures? I like it's permanent fender flares!

Clear skies!

The van is on order. It will take anywhere from 6-10 weeks they tell me.
I got it in Pure Silver which is new for this year for the GM vans. It's the color they are showing on all their vehicles on TV commercials.
