I have questions. Arc, gas, or? Setting? Rod, stick, #, or self feed?
inquiring minds want to know how we should attempt to screw this up on our own at home.

Asking for a Friend. Need to know what kind of welder he should buy so we can do massive projects right out front in his driveway, In a now peaceful Van Diego suburb, that needs to be filled with the sounds of grinding, hammering, cursing, and loud music.

Dogvan darn near dropped a worn U-Joint, rear.
Been there, not doing that. Went home on a Roll-back. So I did the sensible thing. Went to the junkyard!!

Biggest Junkyard I've seen. I spent 3 hours looking for decent seats. Found 3 different sets of Manual seats out of a Dodge Caravan Fully reclining Snug buckets.

These are really nice seats. I know, it's wrong, But. They'd fit nice in the Chevy, too. 😀

P.S. Bill. Don't forget to get the swivel bases out of the 2 Conversion Vans. Check that Back bench for full recline too.

Yeah,, it was good PT, bringing a strong boy with me Saturday. Our Kennel hand. Kid shows up without fail.

I'm also seriously thinking about putting a second set into the G30. Grand Caravans in the before side airbags years are Captains Chairs, fully reclining snug seats, good support, with nice side bolsters.
Plus they are thin. I'd not use a swivel base on the Drivers side, due to the computer mounted under the base, but I'd give up the glove box for the passenger side swivel base. Thank you Scott!

Speaking of Plates, Texas had some decent 454 combos last time I checked. G30 454 not being one. 7.4 G30 was, but they want $$ and it kinda defeated the whole cheaper to register here purpose, I thought anyway. 71, + 7 for the inspection. 100K 2021 TRX, or a thousand dollar beater. Same price. Can't beat that.
Sure do got the itching to go to Van Diego though!😬😅
But 🙃🤔

P.S. Catfish! Love me some Big Wheelies with the 2 big tires up front and another axle in the rear! Plus those 100 dollar wagons with the big wheels too!

Didn’t do anything to the van today, but I did pick up a Weiand tunnel ram today for the Mustang.


You hear the thunder of stampeding rhinos, elephants and tacky tigers
This town ain't big enough for the both of us
And it ain't me who's gonna leave
