Wow! That bar set up is unreal. Your work is amazing

I don’t have Instagram but my lady does so we peeked at your Instagram page and she goes “damn you need to step up your game!” lol She was very impressed with the work both you and your wife have done.

Thank you all so much! It's been a long road, but I am so excited to finally be getting to a somewhat completed state. I just wish there were some van events to go to!

Gorgeous work as always. This thing is looking more like a high end luxury ride than a car hauling van. LOL

WOW!

I stepped away for a year or so, and when I came back I saw the stuff about your headliner.
My 7-year-old literally clapped when he saw the stars and the upholstery work.

Amazing!

Awesome Job Jason, looks great and I agree, wish there were some shows! You are going to need a room for all your trophies when we get back to it in 2021!

Impressive build! Awesome workmanship, even more impressive is your creative eye for design. Very nice.

A bit of a pedestrian question for such a rockin van, but I was wondering what your mileage is on the van unloaded? Not a lot of manual transmission vans around so I'm curious how that changes things for mpg.

Thank you Chiorboy!

While the manual does help with towing, the gas mileage isn't really much better than an automatic. The last time I calculated it, unloaded, it will get around 15-16 mpg on the highway. If I am pulling the car, it gets around 10.. But the 305 is very under powered, so I definitely have to drive it harder than I would a more powerful van for the same result.
