Hi,
I'm new to vanning. This grey mare has been stored for a LONG time. On the good side, low miles, body it not rusted, runs great and I have the original manuals and brochures. The bad? The paint is faded, the window seals have degraded and there are allot of "cobwebs" to clear out.

I'm looking forward to learning from the community and hopefully help others in the process.

Thanks

I'll post a BEFORE shot when it stops raining. She's a matt/weathered grey right now, but the inside looks good. I've got a long list of things to improve, mechanical first, then the body.

Here are a couple of photos:

I don't have a name for her yet. She was called the Whale and Toad by the previous owners.

Side shot. No rust, faded paint. She doesn't really stick out, so good for boondocking. I'm researching painting and wrapping. Probably a job for next spring.

I had to add daytime running lights to get it certified for the DOT. A 15$ fix. The old fog lights will be replaced with LEDs, a Bull Bar and a winch, because I know she'll get stuck in the middle of nowhere, camping overnight, after a rain storm.

My navigator likes the seat height, although they are a little small for him to curl up in. He's not yet found the bed in the back. The steering wheel is mint, but I don't like it, too thin and bony. I have a nice leather Nardi that I'd like to use. I'm still trying to figure out the 6 bolt steering adapters for this model of van. Something chrome the same diameter as the column hopefully.
