Hi everyone,

I am working on making my 1981 Chevy G20 Extended Van a bit funner to drive. I purchased it a few months back, and while it had some leaks and other stuff, it drove fairly well for a 305. I have slapped some newer items on it and have new seats on the way, but my biggest challenge has been with finding a round headlight door. I'm guessing because the van was a lower-end model, less replacement parts exists. But for now, I'm having fun. I'm looking forward to learning and sharing with the community.

Heres a pic of the outside the day I got it and a pic of the I side after I primed and sprayed the floor. I've changed a few more items out since then. Once my new seats get here I'll start putting it back together and take some more progress pics.
