Powder coating,just like chome plating will high light and and all inperfections in the finish of the wheels.
To the point you really have to watch how hard you sand blast them because the pits from the sand blasting will show up.........

I had a manifold bolt twist off in the head while I was removing the passenger side exhaust manifold the other day.

But...today I had better luck...

Today I put on my vintage 70's prism plate that says GMC van on the front and on the back I put on my license frame that reads "Girls Wanted" Inquire Within" The van is in storage until spring but it was nice to see her!!

OK rub it in. At least lostinthe70eees you can open a door and see your van. All I have are pics of it going through cosmetic surgery. I could drive the 50 min. drive to see her.

Looks like I picked the wrong week for sniffin glue!!

All you hard core 2% vanners; Say hello and be nice to your van/s every waking day. Drive your vans often, because you don't know when they may go!!
Man separation anxiety sucks.
I want my van back. I can even look at pics of it. Just doesn't help. This may sound weird, but she is a part of me.

Hopefully I will have her back by the next outing here in L.A.Hopefully.
