You might want to ask what their medium is sand, glass, walnut shells, plastic pellets and so on. you'd want the one that does the best job with the least damage. So when they tell you post it or look it up to see if it is what you want.
These rims and this van fell into the right hands. It's going to look great!!!!!
Keep us posted!! And don't forget pics.

I snapped off a stud changing the thermostat in my 90 chevy last night. I PB Blastered it, I tapped on it while trying to turn it with a vice grip, I ground flats on the stump and heated the manifold with a torch and tried tapping and vicegripping and PBing it again.... all no good. I finally hauled out the welder and welded a giant blob on top of it and then welded a nut on top of that. The heat from the welding and having a nice new "head" it came right out just like butta. Total job time = 4.5 hours. Bleah. Then I got a nice 2 hours of sleep till I had to get up for my paper route. At least I have some crankin' heat now. cool

Is it naptime yet?

Dang Josh, that certainly qualifies as having done something "TO" your van...

I also have some brand new Western hub covers coming I got off of ebay for 28 bucks shipped. They're black and chrome with ribs down the side and a chrome 'WESTERN' on top of the cap outlined in black. I'm thinking this might look real cool when done, will see..

I've bout an HEI distributor for my 73 E-100, have yet to bring it home, need to do several things before I can make it into a daily driver, rather than occasional, which is rough getting behind the wheel as is. I've been driving my 99 like a raped ape, I need to back off before I break it. LoL Between 2 vans, one is impossible to do engine maint/repairs and has serios wheelchair lift mechanical issues, and the other has everything within reach, a basic ride right down to the lift, just needs rearranged. The lift in the 99 is rather easy to get back to functioning as long as you have a BFH nearby.
It's cold out, when spring comes I'll get back onto working on the van, rewiring the lift, replacing all of the switches, gonna try avoiding stuff for now.

Finished my exhaust work and tune-up yesterday on the Ford and went for a little ride in the foothills today.
