I'm trying. Going to swing by later this week and talk to the owner about grabbing some ports and stuff. There is one blue van in the yard that I have been looking for, but we can't find it. It had a bug shield on the hood, but the chrome grille and front bumper were in excellent condition, and it had a really need cabinet with a mirrored backsplash panel behind it. They had to move a bunch of stuff around last year, but somehow it disappeared. They didn't crush it, so it's just lurking somewhere that I haven't spotted.

Must be a big yard if they can’t find it.

This town ain't big enough for the both of us
And it ain't me who's gonna leave

It is pretty big, but there is even stuff buried in the woods that haven't been touched in probably close to 20 years or more. They are moving a lot of stuff around too. Talked to the owner yesterday, he is a good friend of mine. He said he is going to ride around this week some and see if he can find it for me.

I started cleaning up the sunroof, I think the only issue I’m coming across is the gasket is obsolete. I think I found one that may work but the site has no measurements for it. It cleaned up very well and there was a sticker on the glass of the Virgin of Guadalupe that actually burned into the factory tint. I think that is really cool looking.

I picked these up in a local junkyard for a few bucks. They're all warped and melted near where the pipes came out. I cleaned them up a bit and I'll hang them on the wall when I get a garage.

I also found this old high top Dodge. Everything on the grille is perfect. The rear wasn't and neither were the mirrors.

I don't have time to part it out so I left it.

That Dodge bumper looks pretty decent, for the right price it would be a good core for a rechrome. Wonder what attached to the bar below the bumper.

Nice score on those mudflaps. They should make for some killer garage art. Hopefully when all this crap blows over I can get back to my local yard and do some parts pickin'.

I tried to strip the Dodge grille today. It was held in by two stripped phillips screws. I couldn't do it.

I did find a cool '77 E150 that hit the lot yesterday.

I didn't take the glass or the CB. The CB was covered in shit and I couldn't guarantee it was going to work, there were no wires for it. I couldn't remove the glass without breaking it. I just took some interior handles for the van and a few small pieces that gave me some ideas.
