It only seems that way. Take a few minutes and look back through your thread and tell me with a straight face that you are not getting anything done. From experience I understand what you are going through but from where I sit you have done an incredible job saving this van.

Body work is an can be very time consuming.
On the good side look at the money you are saving.
Set down and put the time you have spent, multiplied by your local shops labor rates.The cost of you build will sky rocket.

Also there is nothing better than to be able to say when it is all done.I did it ALL myself......

Got a little more done!!
The passenger side, rear door frame and all the major mud work is behind me now there is still a lot of blocking and fine tuning the lines so they are nice and straight.The doors are back off and I started blocking them last night they are pretty good so they shouldn't take up too much time.

Only minimal amounts of mud required to smooth your work is a great testament to quality of the metal work. Looking forward to seeing the van in paint.
