I drove my van across the city to pay a visit to the paintshop who has a paintreader. They take a spot to put the device on, and there are the right colors to mix, exactly the color on the van at his screen.

Look at the paint, on the left side with that rust bubble on it is not threated yet, and has 33 year old paint on it. The right side (left barn door) has fresh paint on. It matches perfectly cheers

Behind the fenderflare; It's the wrong color but the mural painter has to mix the right one at that time. But...it needed some paint right now.

Ofcourse my mural painter has to do his job to make it exactly the same when Harold Harnish put it on. But...that's for later. First we have to do the little issues, but it's to bussy right now in the shop. We do that in the Wintertime. After that we have to redo the trailer. finaly the mural painter and than it's ready to go.

See you later vanners.
Do you like it so far?

Yes. Lions Den is my favorite van of all times. I've heard the way it was build and they new before the paint came on, that this would and could happen.

I own the Tradewinds since 2005. It takes me so long due to my health, but i dicided to get this job done. It will never get pristine again, but we will get as close as we can with it's patina.

After this summer we do the rest of the Dodge. Also the engine, front suspension, wheels, exhaust etc. I hope we can do the trailer next year.

Stay tuned.

Hi Moparronnie,
I am happy to see my old dream.
I was the second owner in Germany.
And I am also happy to see, that you spent your Love and Money to refit the Van.
By the way, I was the guy, who went to Belgium to a US- Car- Meeting and
this License plate, you can see at the Fotos, was a special plate from my homearea Ahrweiler (AW).

Many Greetins From Remagen.

Bernd
