Funnily enough, I've been a gearhead for over a decade, never done that road. I've spent a lot of time in the Nantahala forest, was just never there to do the dragon. I need to go on a weekday. On the motorcycle.

In with a small update

Ended up adding 1 inch wheel spacers. With stock wheel and tire offset, hit the addco sway bar just a tiny bit at full lock. I do really like the look of the spacers though, 1 inch is perfect. The van drives immeasurably better at all speeds. Hard to judge just the sway bars since I did everything at once.

Paint and body is very close. Pulled the first conversion window today. The same shop is going to weld in my new top windshield metal, and do raptor liner. There will be stripes. I'm beyond excited.

That's awesome. I'm so far from that point and getting thru a complete powertrain and suspension build.

I've drove it a few times in the GMC. But only in the cold of winter and only on a weekday. That road belongs to the bikers.

What primary color is the van gonna be?
TANWEN is a dragon name and is Welsh for "White Fire".

Gray. With some semi boogie 80's stripes. On the fence about doing the grille and headlight bezels black. I'll have to see the finished product first.

Getting the wheels repainted too. With mega flake.

I can't remember the last time I was this excited about much of anything.
