Love it, keep up the great photos.

Been thinking of getting a hitch mounted bike rack, what kind do you have?

It's made by Yakima, holds 2 bikes, and swings down so you can open the doors without taking it off the hitch. I don't know how old it is, but it's solid other than the rubber straps getting kind of rotted out - none of them have broke yet though. Got it for $40 on craigslist.

Tube amps! Tube amps rule! Almost as much as custom vans! Hey, I have a stack of em! A 1978 Fender Twin Amp (aka the monster twin) a 1977 Fender Studio Bass Amp (yep, the parametric EQ job thats the same chassis as the Super Twin that Nugent played back in the day) a modified Peavey Delta Blues, a Fender Super Champ X2 (ya, I know, well...it tries real hard to be a real tube amp) a 1974 Earth Sound Research Revival 410 that I fully rebuilt top to bottom, cab, caps, wiring, a matched set of NOS Emminence tens I came across and all, that just kills now with its NOS "beautiful girls" verb tank, a cherry one owner 1967 Fender Deluxe Reverb with original reciept and owners manual, which was my buddies who got it for Christmas back in 67 and stuck it in a closet and left it there until last year....yep, caps were hit, but otherwise its MINT! GOTTA LOVE EM, even if ya cant crank em often enough dangit... Theres lots more but I dont wanna bore ya'll.
Hey, on van sinks here's a little something I did a few times back in the day that worked out really great. At most any discount store you can find polished stainless steel salad bowls in any size ya want. Big twelve inch down to little things. Punch an appropriate size hole in the middle bottom (easier said than done, but yer all pretty handy) to mount the smaller RV size drain fixtures and viola, for under ten bucks you have a darn nice looking van sink that you can mount right into a countertop just easy a heck, they have the perfect flange around the edge on em. I routed a channel for the flange to drop in neatly and used construction adhesive to mount it and it never popped outta there. Nobody ever knew it wasnt an expensive fifty dollar or more RV sink, they look exactly the same once yer done, minus the drain flange sits up a sixtenth of an inch or so. Wasnt ever a problem. Sure does save a lot of money for more beerz!

Been mooning over the damn van only because the rain has kept me from working on it.

Tearing out the carpet due to a leak around the passenger door jamb and foot well. Van-na got really smelly, and I thought I fixed the weatherstripping where the rain was coming in, but after getting a helluva lot more rain, it seems either I missed another leak around the same area or my fix didn't do jack. It's somewhere in the passenger door corner, maybe under the dash or coming from the windshield, which I got replaced early last year so I hope it isn't something with the new windshield's gasket. I haven't had a chance to put in the new carpet yet, which I've been itching to do, so I guess it's fortunate I didn't yet and ruin the new stuff. Tomorrow we get a break in the weather, so I hope I can just plug the leaks with some silicone. Her floors will get the scrub-a-dub treatment, and I'll clean & reuse the dirty 'padding' foam panels that were under the shag.......then it's just a matter of waiting to see if it all worked when the next round of rain hits us the day/week after. THEN it'll be new carpet install time....

And I gotta fix the damn window blind cords that got snapped while I was dragging out the bench seat/bed. Then we should be ready for some springtime campin'.

Seems like the new windshield gasket might be suspect. The glass guy I usually use has done me right in the past, and he's cheap, but clearly the replacement gasket he used on the new windshield last year wasn't quite an exact match, close though. Put a bead of silicone around the outside, especially in the void I noticed at the top, we'll see how it goes when the rain returns. I hope it works, because I don't want to redo the windshield again.

Ripped out the remaining carpet and cleaned some. I ended up just cutting around the brackets for the bench seat and seat belts so I wouldn't have to take out those bolts. The white foam padding between the carpet and the black deadening material on the floor is probably not salvageable because of the mildew-looking stuff that won't seem to come off it.
