After successfully fixing a bad vacuum leak and exhaust leak over the weekend, today I took it in and got the windows in the front two doors re-tinted (original 89 tint had faded to nasty purple) and got the replacement conversion window tinted darker. Looks good.

When I got home I snuck out to the garage and sanded and primed the bargain air dam I got from Discount Van Truck on eBay. They were having a clearance sale and I picked up a vintage air dam for $26 plus shipping! I think it was made in 1981 since cast into the lip of the air dam is a little box that says "Fits Ford 75-81 Late". That tells me this piece was made in 81 and then sat on a shelf for 31 years! Once I get it painted and installed on my van I will post some pictures.

Got up went to the home depot, purchased a roll of faced R-13 insulation for 11.20. And spent a couple of hours insulating walter the van. The conversion company didn't do a good job at insulation the side doors, rear doors, or the rear corners of the van. I wouldn't be surprised though if the side doors were fully insulated then some of it was thrown out during a repair or something. But the side doors really didn't have any insulation at all. So Walter is fully insulated, when I get back home to FL I will remove the seats and sofa (have to clean the dog hair) and I will remove the interior panels and add insulation where it is needed.

I wanted to insulate the bottom of the driver and passenger door and was doing it and I thought to myself I can't insulate them because the water will encourage mold growth! Damn it!

Well all insulated and hopefully it will help keep the interior temps down a little bit or help keep the inside warm during winter and cooler inside during summer! The old insulation was R-11 so this R-13 should be a bit better, besides I think it was actually better to use the R-13 on the doors because of how thin they are etc...

The one problem I will have when it comes time for paint, removing all of the custom windows.



The winders arent that hard to remove, just time consuming to take all the interior trim out of the way.
