Thanks to all who have welcomed me to the forum, I have some new idea's from looking around here for the last few weeks. Quick story been in vans for work (HVAC)for over 20 years and have owned a 1980 G-20 that I use for side work for the last 5 years. A couple of weeks ago I found a 1977 chevy shorty and against advice I bought it. I know there are tons of directions to go in Vannin but I'm not trying to recapture some past glory, instead I'm looking for something I can drive around town that is not like everything else. So the journey begins........

This is what I brought home.



molding



bench looks clean but NOT dog hair and vomit.



front seats



first week clean up and polish



Same door. Looked like bush scratches all the way down





week 2 molding and painted the rims back to normal





Sorry about all the pictures but I'm excited bout this old girl

Nice and clean I like that van. This is shorty's momma her name is Betty like ugly Betty but she's a money making machine, so I threw her a bone and put some 454ss truck wheels but still has the original paint from 1980.

Looks nice. I wonder if a buffer might make my big brownie look better? I have big plans for paint but maybe a weekend buffing might make it look okay for now while I drive it a while.

Looking for a set of 15X8 Rally wheels myself, I kinda like the dark painted wheel though

Your van really cleaned up nice.
I am also a big fan of the 8 inch truck rallies.
Like a set of Corvette Rallies the silver really sets them off.
