I don't have too much to report as I was sick this last weekend and wasn't able to work on the van. This weekend I am heading to a larger swap about two hours away to see what I can find for the van. I ordered a wing and flares from Van Accessories Direct. It should take about three weeks to get them as they are being made up. I also bit the bullet and spent a bit of money on some more chrome parts for the engine. It will really help to clean it up and make it look better inside.
My NOS Sparkomatic wedge speakers showed up today. I already have a similar set of wedge Sparkomatic speakers in the van. They're a bit crusty for being NOS, their box pretty much fell apart in my hands from being exposed to a lot of moisture. All the mounting hardware is rusted like crazy and there is some rust on the speakers inside, but I'll be able to test them from home to see what happens.
I think the ceiling behind the seats would be a good spot for them and I can relocate the smaller ones to the overhead console.
Also, I scored a nice CB today off Facebook Marketplace from a guy who bought out a CB shop that had closed down. It had been rewired for a cigarette plug in. She works when plugged in, I just need an antenna to test her out for real. Maybe next month.
I am working on an idea that I have for the hole in the dash. Once I know if it will work or not, I will detail it here. But I have a good feeling on it.
