Those are both the driver and passenger door trim. I haven't pulled the trim off the two side or two back doors yet. Let alone all the wood trim still on the dash and inside. I swear Starcraft used an entire tree to outfit my van.

There are also several pieces on the doors I couldn't get off for one reason or another yet. crazy

Starcraft used a lot of good quality wood trim in there Conversion Vans......

Took the Beast of Burden II out to run errands today.The road trip to Florida was better than a tune up.The old girl is running much better than before we left for the road trip.....

I finished up the retrofit to a standard Chrysler electronic ignition in my 1987 Dodge B150.

I recently bought this well-used van for $400. After freshening the engine and rebuilding the carb, I still had a terrible bog upon hard acceleration, and my timing was bouncing around. It had the spark control computer, but not the lean burn carb, so the change-over wasn't bad at all. Being an electrician helped. Used stock parts for a 1983 Dodge D150 from Advanced Auto, costing me maybe $100.

The timing mark is now rock steady. By the time I got it done, I only had time to take it down the street, but no more bog!
