Thanks everyone

Really happy with how the interior turned out. Its first car show will be Sat, should be fun.

leanmachine: Brian, I was into shaving & smoothing my 85 pro street Astro, this one, I like the kinda stock sleeper look.

I think the sleeper vibe went out the window with the 15 inch wide rear tires lol Looks badass nonetheless, i'd sure take it to the grocery store!

dragnastro: Actually the back tires are 33 inches tall and 21.5 wide with 16.6 inches of tread, but I know what you are saying.
To me it still looks kinda of stock. My friends have or have had pro street cars with big hood scoops, motor sticking thru the hood, big superchargers with dual carbs, wild paint jobs, aftermarket gauges & shifter amd old muscle cars.
It is badass for being an Astro van, but it is really mild compared to the pro street cars I usually see.
Dont get me wrong, I love my Asto. I can leave it just like it is, dont have to worry about seeing another one like it.

Thank you Beast_Lee
Did some more interior work. Previous owner cut out some of the very rear headliner that hung down, used Astro to haul flat track bikes. Instead of replacing the headliner, we bend up some aluminum to fix the gap and painted to match.
Before:

After:


Cleaned it up and tokk some better pictures
