I went down to the junkyard today on my lunch break to scope out an '83 high top Econoline. I was able to get some small parts that will work on my mid, unfortunately I had to leave some more time consuming parts behind. If I was still in the market, there were some rad captains chairs and pedestals in the van.

Stoked for these parts.

I also ordered some vintage 80's Suntune gauges for the Mustang but got a few extras for the van including an econometer. All were NOS and it is a real shame to use them. But, the 70's/80's original street look is a must for me. No going back.

Now if I can only get a Suntune tach with the blue stripe to match. The Mustang has a red stripe and is Suntune II, all circa 1987.

Thank you, I am so stoked for them. There won't be enough hours in the day on Saturday to do everything that I have planned. laugh

I'll take some pics later, but I just picked up my door panels. I had one of my maintenance guys cut them for me due to my lack of tools. I went with the paneled MDF from Lowe's for the barn doors and some sheets of 3/8" plywood for the door panels. Once I test fit on Saturday, I will mark for adjustment, drill pilot holes, and hopefully be able to wrap the door panels with vinyl.

My goal is to have the majority of the interior ready to go once she comes back from paint and body so I can slap it all (well, 80% at least) together in a weekend.

Once the charging issue is sorted out, I can focus on sanding the interior to prep for insulation. Thank goodness all the shows this year are being cancelled. *Sarcasm*

Today I went to FIVE different local auto parts stores looking for a pair of Sylvania SilverStar headlights. I finally managed to find one at an O'Reilly and another at AutoZone, only to get home to find that one didn't work and one was in a box that had been opened and resealed with a used, different model headlight inside.

Amazon wins again. It really shouldn't be so hard to spend money locally.

That's annoying.

Well, I just ordered my one wire alternator for the van because I'm tired of playing catch up inside the wiring harness. I figure I'll go one wire and delete the headache. But, this means taking apart the whole front again and I can now access a lot of things I couldn't before. I'll just move that Cal Custom gauge set up to the van and use the Ammeter, Econometer, and the Oil instead of the Mustang.

I drove down to Redwood City in the South Bay Area today to pick up a 1937 radio for my uncle. While loading it up, I noticed a cherry 1969 across the street.

[Linked Image]

It was a nice surprise after seeing countless 80’s Chevy and Dodge vans. If anyone here is into radios, I also got to see a Zenith Stratosphere. They were made in 1935 and cost $700 brand new. Only 100 were made and 16 are known to exist today. Absolutely amazing piece of technology for the time.

The final cherry on top was picking up a NOS Venturi Vent lid to restore a decent one I have in storage.

Today was a good day.
