Maybe I'll compile all of my progress pics when I've got the time and start a thread.


Definitely start a build thread. Will be great to watch the progress. Looking good

After eyeballing and trying to massage, this is about the best gap I can get on the passenger side with a flush driver side. I know there's filler on the van, I just don't want to risk installing the front pieces as one and then breaking one. That is about as close as I can get with the passenger flare without being too far forward or back. I think I will just fiberglass over the gap and call it good. Thoughts?

I will look at it again on Saturday.

Yeah, I'm going to mold them all into the body. It'll match the whole way around once that's done.

I worked on the van today and threw away 5 hours dealing with wiring and trying to bypass the resistor wire, only to end up drawing from a different 12 volt source. Wasted a lot of time but I found a few uncovered live wires. That’s something at least.

Wedgy helped me rip out the interior of the White Rhino and made a new bed pedestal … going long way down the passenger side. ….

Cleared out our old Ford today and got it ready to go. Got a friend coming to get it tomorrow. Saying goodbye ain't gonna be easy.
