welcome to the forums!
I really dig the high top on a panel. Nice van! The way it's set up it already looks like a 'vanner' van.

I actualy sleep with my head at the back doors, and my feet twards the front. The pillows are just thrown to the side in the pictures. I'm 6'-3", so my feet hang off a little bit, but it is still perfectly comfortable.

I thought about reconfiguring it, but if I took the box out, it would give the chick more room to run away...

It did have rustprofing done, and a Macco type paint job in the late '80s. I'm not sure why he repainted it, it might be because he wasnt satisfied with the high top & flare paint match. It was always grey, but I think the body has more flake than the jams.
