Was not today. But we've put 1700 miles on the van in the last week, did two separate weekend road trips. Seattle to Boise and back last weekend. Then Seattle to Salem Oregon and back this weekend. Van did great with 3-5 guys and all their gear loaded in for each trip. Pulling 75-80 easily on flat ground with the AC on maximum front and back, 80-94 degree temps. Temp gauge never went more than one needle width above the 1/4 mark. Which means the aluminum radiator and high flow water pump are doing their job. I checked all the fluids this morning and it only went through 1/2 quart of oil. Good job van!

This was the first longer road trip I'd done since the head gasket blew in Arizona last summer. I was slightly nervous, but really there was obviously no reason for it. Haha!

Today I mocked up what my van would look like with the addition of the roof racks I recently picked up from Deathorvictory and some OEM chrome wheel arch trim I've had sitting in a box for a while.

I dig the roof racks but I'm not sure how I feel about the wheelwell trim. My van has been bare bones for so long that any small addition makes it seem "over-accessorized".

I say yes to the rack, that looks real cool, no to the trims. For as well as they fit on there, they remind me of autozone level add on accessory.

Yeah, that's what I'm leaning toward too.

I had originally picked up the trim - which was a factory item GM offered on Beauville vans - to cover up some crappy bodywork someone did to one of the rear wheel arches but I've since fixed that and yeah...it looks a little out of place on my van.

If anyone wants to buy some GM wheel arch trim in perfect condition, shoot me a message! 😁

I agree on the roof rack. (don't throw or sell the wheel trim just yet)

Question
Do you plan on painting the van at some point? If so, you can always paint the wheel trim to accent the wheels.

Love the wheels! The van is looking good!!!

Yeah, I really like it too - on a Beauville van. It just seems a little weird on my van.

And now I can't stop thinking about all the super tacky chrome Autozone accessories dudes stick all over their crappy pickup trucks...
