Helps keep dirt out too.


Right on, I polyurethaned all my edges and sprayed them with clear Flex Seal. I'm going to run a bead of black seam sealer along the bottom edge to fell the gap between the wood & metal floor too to keep crap out of there.

I used a wall-to-wall layer of Floor Muffler Ultraseal under the wood as a moisture barrier. It also did a really good job of soundproofing. Gonna use another layer of it between the wood and the carpet because I have enough of it left to cover the whole back of the van and figure it will make the floor even quieter.

I have a spare one with a blue center that I grabbed from a junkyard last year. It's not for sale, though.

They pop up on eBay from time to time but usually don't sell cheap.

Last week I went out to take to grocery store … waaaan no start here it is a week later had a good day today medically put a charger on it and VAROOOOM that 454 came to life so maybe tomorrow I can get some freedom N drive a little. Cant get up into Big Red just yet that one may take months to climb up into. but so happy The White Rhino will haul me around in the wind.

Today I tidied up and re-soldered my tail light wiring. A previous owner had made a huge spaghetti mess back there and there were about 20 wires attached to the harnesses that went nowhere. A few even doubled right back to themselves. No idea why...

I hate doing electrical stuff but I'm glad it's finally done so I can finish the insulation in the back corners and put my walls up.

Well I went and picked up the 78 Chevy beauville this past Saturday and brought it to the shop. Started on it 5:30 am Sunday morning, all it needs is head gasket?? Fired it up has 70psi cold oil pressure got it inside and tore it down. Left head gasket was blown between 3 and 5, top of the motor looked awesome.. finished up before midnight fired it up and the motherloving rods are knocking..what a kick to the mid section.
