Here are some pics from the interior of the 1974 Ford in my local yard. She is pretty rusty outside. I have a friend heading up for the column, trans, and brake set up to convert his 3 on the tree.
I went back for the Mid Ford in the lot south of me. They're having a 50% off glass sale this week. The windshield is in great shape and is $35 before the 50% off sale. It is so massive that I would have an issue getting it home. Glass is the one thing the yard doesn't pull otherwise I would pay them to remove it for me.
Huge Dodge pop out.
I had a friend score me some pop outs for my Mid over the weekend. I already ordered gasket and louvers. I am so stoked on it.

Thanks as always, Ram4ever, for taking the time to reply. Your wisdom is of great value.https://www.uswheeladapters.com/shop/hub-centric-rings-aluminum/
These people are the ones to help me if i get the measurements correct. I am reasonably confident about the measurements but then they get into the "outer flange" which I am less confident about. I still haven't used the van since fitting the wheels because I was replacing my front upper ball joints, which was an interesting experience (would not have happened without my new super beast impact driver).
I'm pretty happy to take it for a spin, it was fine before on my ancient tires, I am very much hoping my $600+ investment will provide a smoother and enjoyable ride. I may address these rings once the pain of the $600+ has worn off and I can tackle a risky custom set of $100+ rings.
I will look out for nikithenomad, thanks for the tip, i have corresponded with her before,. I know as she is on the road her internet access is infrequent but her blog website is a great read.
| | starting issue Kermit Yesterday at 11:55 PM 0
I went to a cruise in today in my Dodge A-108, and a few hrs later it wouldn't start, no clicking, headlights didn't dim. The wire connections to the starter from the box at the back of the left side of the rear of the firewall were tight so I used a screwdriver to jump the two top terminals at the starter, and it started just fine. I drove him and turned the engine off. Just out of curiosity I tried starting it and it started okay. Could the problem be in the starter solenoid or relay, and if it's the starter solenoid is that the one that has the connections that I jumped with the screwdriver? If so do I have to remove the starter to replace it, or can I just replace it by itself?
Here is a picture of the terminals that I jumped. This doesn't look anything like what is depicted in the photos at the standard auto parts places for starter solenoid switches. Is this something else?

Weld several bolts to the floor in the bottom of the rib... and or under the van ... (you could always use a plate under the van to drill N tap into) ... pop a hole and use those strap clamps, clean them up and rubberize them so they dont mark your floor.
The safety of your passengers are of most importance so the bigger the bolts the better...
There are 4 3/4-10 bolts holding down the passenger seat pedestal thru the floor .. large washers and double nutted on the underside if thats a clue to size N construction... accidents happen.
