You may have seen the post from Sammy about Tim's 86 G20 he was selling out of Old Town FL a couple of months ago. I was the one who purchased it, I just wish it would have been under better circumstances. Tim called a few weeks ago and asked if I could post some updated pictures on here since he isnt really Instagram savvy. If anyone would like to check out more van stuff, follow me on Instagram at @already_gone_van My Instagram Account

Before you get lost down that rabbit hole of van awesomness, here is a few things that I have done.

Stained the wood interior
Added new Doo-doo brown carpet.
New 3/4 Plywood subfloor
Kilmat underlayment
Added a new, more compact bed setup. I used plans from an old van magazine that I found, came out awesome.
Started on the brown suede door panels.
Removed the headlined previously installed and i am working on the overhead console.
Added brand new tires 235/60-15 front and 275/60-15 in the rear.
Bought some wheels, (used), from south Carolina, they turned out great!
New chrome lug nuts
Steam cleaned the seats.
Changed all fluids, new plug wires,
New K&N air filter
Custom painted air filter assembly
Fixed front grill that didn't sit flush, (this annoyed me every time i looked at it, lol)
Cleaned the headlight bezels with Acetone, (Chrome underneath) So the front end looks amazing now.
Added a full Flowmaster dual exhaust, (All i can say is WOW!)
Greased up all internal locking mechanisms. The were kinda stiff.
Rear taillights didn't work, so replaced all sockets on all four corners, new bulbs as well.
Changed all 4 headlights to high output bulbs
Added rear pop-out windows
Added louvers to the rear windows
Added stainless window visors
New Forever Sharp steering wheel with a polished adapter
NOS Sears Stainless Amber foglights should be here this week.


After making this list, I have realized that I ended up doing WAYYYYYY more than I had anticipated

Anyways, here are the pictures...

Very nice, the night time pics with the city lights in the background are cool. Do you also own the blue Chevy.

Van looks awesome! Question, how did you get the corners of your grill moved foward? I'm 99% sure i have the same grill it's doing the same thing as when you bought it. Thought about welding extensions on the mounting tabs, or moving the mounting holes forward not sure which way to go.

I just attached some extensions and this allowed me to bring it flush where its supposed to be. If you bring it flush and try to screw it in place, the screws will be outside of the hood, and it will look stupid.
