Nice job Doug. Looks like a clean job. (I apologize for the late response, my computer quit and just found time to get off the island to replace it.)

Hi All

The stock Chevy extender is 5 1/4 inches. I found one at the junkyard off a conversion van. It's exactly twice as long at 10 1/2 inches. I found it by chance. I was at the junkyard for something unrelated.

After I thought about it, it made sense. A lot of these conversion vans were sold off the lot with flairs. Some with running boards. If they had a sliding door, it had a longer extender.

Great info, Tom. Now find me an extension for a '75 Ford.

My Vanagon came with the longer extension and it is broken. I have a spare one but it is smaller, is there a way to move the track or something to allow the smaller extension to fit?

I have a 1975 Chevy G10 and my extension is 10 1/8" center line to center line. However, mine is not functioning correctly. It delivers the door to the rear locking pin about 1/2" to low. Can't seem to adjust it to correct this problem. May be the nylon block (although it looks good) or the arm is a bit bent. Any ideas. I'm getting frustrated with this issue.

I extended my stock arm by welding in 6" of round stock. Door actually works smoother now than it did stock. On Chevy, you also need to make the linkage about 1/4" longer for the bottom latch so it will latch open.
