Kinda new here. Great site. I've learned some things and found a few hard to find parts here.
Here's my sexy boogie van:

Details on the front suspension? Looking for that same stance up front. Beautiful van!

Hey Pat, That's BadAss.

I have a couple of questions:
Did you get the pix of the seat base?

About the van, The signal lenses are white. They changed from amber to white in '78 (I have a '78). Was yours white when you got it?
I've been burning up the interweb looking for amber units. If the '78 white lenses fit, that's good to know.

I bought a grill/front bumper combo on CL for $300 and need the lenses.

A good looking van is carefully planned.
What wheel/tire combo did you use?
Where'd ya get those pipes?
Love the mirrors...but how do you make right hand turns?

My wifes accord has a camera thet turns on when she engages the signal. I thought about putting one on my panel for safety.

Thanks for all the compliments.
Letterhead: I found some stock bases from another member here.
My van's a 71 which I think was the only year of this body style with clear turn signal lenses.
I'll keep an eye out for some ambers for you.
I bought the van like it is. I'm guessing it has cut or shorter front springs.
No right turns yet because I haven't been able to drive it yet. Just installed a wheelchair lift but still need a power seat base and hand controls.

I also bought a wrecked 2015 Camaro SS(in the background of the last pic) and plan to install the complete drivetrain and suspension under the van.

I'll post the wheel/tire combo today.
