Long time no updates. Due to shut downs, I lost my shop space i was renting, relying on my full time job only meant putting the van on the back burner again. Also had to move it to a storage only facility, but just found outdoor storage where i'm allowed to work on the van. So hopefully more updates soon. Ordered a billet grill for a truck hopefully it'll fit. My headlight doors, grill, and fuel lines should be in Wednesday. Radiator should be in today, decided to go with a stock radiator since i plan to travel with the van parts would be hard to get if i made everything custom. Also, burned some of my paid time off and took an 900 mile road trip in my shop truck to pick up a rust free sliding door near Niagara falls.
Door maybe slightly more damaged than advertised, looks pretty bent near this body line. I figure i can probably straighten it out better than cutting and welding new metal in my old door. Only thing i'm not fond of is the single window, the original had dual pop outs. I may still repair my old door since i can leave this one on the van, and keep it sealed.
