If you do the one you have you know whats up with it & know what to expect, what has been fixed and what it needs...if you go get another you have to start over.....reg is more ins is more van payments...all this can put your current van in show quality....


I vote to keep the one you have....

interesting point of view frscke1, good points. im a vanner by function, but i want to build the van to form. however the van i have has nothing in common with my vision... guess i just need to determine pipe dream or reality and follow through. thanks fellahs

Lower diver side cabinet construction complete, ill post a picture tomorrow. next step is wood putty to fill the recessed screw head holes, seal the wood and paint.

got new carpet, already fixed the intake gasket, and rebuilt my trans (PITA). while i was at the salvage yard getting parts, i got new seats for my fiancee's volvo, so her burgundy seats are going into my van, along with the drivers cargo van seat rail (i hate how low mine sits). also got a few rolls of 5% and 25% tint. should be able to have everything together in a week or so...

also found a new salvage yard that has its own section of vans, approx 60! most of which are so mint its enough to anger the average vanner (ill snap a few pix next time im out there) so new doors, and steering column are in the works once i finish what i've already started. clearly i've decided to stick with my van. just going to suck when i start doing body work.
