Here's the van i have been asking questions about:
http://i133.photobucket.com/albums/q59/dkscism/Vanindriveway.jpg
I got it for $700 off of craigslist. It has a Chevy 350 w/ 150,000 miles. After an oil change it ran like a dream. I'm in the process of prepping it for paint now:

My dad runs a body shop so I have perfect access to paint and body resources. My idea for paint is here:
http://vannin.com/threads/ubbthreads.php/topics/481999/Re_Wing_on_a_high_top.html#Post481999
The theme is Clemson Tigers. I'm going there in about a month for my freshman year! This is going to be our tailgater van.
I plan on doing the interior in orange and purple too...I have already bought "Automotive Upholstery Handbook" and "Custom Auto Interiors" both by Don Taylor as recommended by fellow vanners on this forum. Im looking forward to this project and i'm ready to get deeper into it!

Dkscism - sounds like an awesome idea. It's a lot of work you're embarking on. Those books you reference are great, but search around here on vannin.com - you'll find just about all the information you need to make your tailgating dreams come true (including beer recipes!, but as a freshman you won't be drinking WILL YOU??) hahaha

If you use the [IMG} codes in your photo bucket account and leave a space between the code and the text your pictures will show up linkless.......

Welcome and good luck with your project.....
