This morning I re-attached a separated inner roof support using a combo of Eastwood panel adhesive and seam sealer, which seems to have done the trick. I went way overkill but it's probbaly not going to detach again. Then I made some mounts for an armrest on my passenger side door because I have one 1978 door and one from a '75 (the armrest mounts are different and I'm using '75-style armrests).

This afternoon I replaced the all the weatherstripping on my passenger side door & windows, then finished up some body work around a rear wheel arch and prepped it for paint. Nothing major, just some touch-ups.

Tonight I ordered a 150 amp Powermaster alternator from Summit. Boom!

As a sidenote: has anyone ever removed & re-installed a Chevy vent window without having a f@#king nervous breakdown? If so, I salute you.

On my '75 Dodge B100 the car wash joint ripped of my antenna, lol. I just replaced with one off Amazon. It's actually intended for a Volkswagon according to Amazon, but it looked like what I needed, so I ordered it to find out. And it fits perfect. I can provide a part number if anyone cares.

More like what did we do this last month! Here's the blog post with photos...

Congrats to everyone getting things done on their vans. We were psyched to be in a position to finally get some stuff done too.

Today I went to put in my new alternator and realized the a wire connected to my starter is broken in two, which may explain why my old alternator wasn't working as it should. So......I probably didn't need an new one after all. I'll crawl under there and work on getting it all reconnected this weekend.

At least I've got a shiny new 150 amp alternator now!

Wheels look good Newtownguy.

First time ever working on drum brakes.

Replaced the shoes, wheel cylinder and springs, now for the other side.
