Hey Mickey you know they are just up HY67 in Poway ... I went there for both of my vans ...let the Engineer's come out to check out your ride and make a decision . They give you the exact model number, then you go to your shop to order cause they dont sell out of the factory.

Small stuff again. The body is getting there.

I went to the swap today, if I'd had a Dodge I would have been looking good. A visor, scoop, and grille were all present. The rest was lowrider parts. Hopefully the big swap this weekend will find me more prosperous.

I scored a book on street machines and a KC wiring kit. If anyone needs one, this one is complete. I passed up some 15x10 mags for the rear of my van but all I need is one for a spare. I may have a lead.

Got the radiator back in, fired her up, tweaked the carb a little....DROVE it around the block, ran good, lots more grunt with the new distributor/coil. Carb and heads could use some new gaskets, have to scope out the plugs too, but just getting it moving today was a big win. Oh yeah, and we still need to wire it all back up.....gettin' there slowly but surely. My mechanic is a good dude.

I just secured a 70's Coleman standing cooler for the van. It has wood grain, all in great shape, and it was for sale locally. Looks like I am gonna build a cabinet...

Charlie, if you didn't already have a name for the van, she could be Bondo Betty or the Bondo Bandit, my gosh that's a TON of filler. EEGAD!

Tell me about it. These mids are notorious for rust and I am starting to see it. Thankfully it isn't anything out of control but goodness!

What kinda irks me is Kurk Collins could make a fiberglass hood for the mid because he has all the molds but refuses to because he would have to charge $500 for one hood. I would pay $500 for a hood and I know several other mid owners who would because theirs are all rotted and we can't go to the yards and grab em like the Chevy vans. Plus he could even make the hoods with the scoops on em. Oh well, I get that it has to be worth his time and effort also but I would for sure buy a hood. I guess he would need more than one purchased laugh .
