I present to you my gateway into Vannin'. I found this shorty 1984 Ford Econoline on Craigslist and just had to have it.
She was a bit neglected by the previous owner but nothing too bad. Good thing I like to work on cars and learn new things [cough] carbs [cough].
I don't have a ton of pictures yet but the weather is getting nicer and I'll be getting it out more often pretty soon.
Here she is in the condition that I got her. Just under 100k on the clock.
One of the things that bugged me the most was the ratty and butchered door panels.
Here is what they looked like when I got the van.
And this is what I just finished today. This was my first time making a door panel from scratch so I definitely learned a few things and think I can make a few improvements with the next one. But, overall I'm very happy with the improvement.
While I was in there I Dynamatted the door panels and installed new 3 way speakers which are fed by a 250 watt Pioneer amp.
