I didnt get the windows figured out, ran out of time again. I did get both front exterior door handles changed out and the door springs put back in. I replaced the rear hatch struts about a month ago. Just need that slider gullwinged and all doors are fixed. My brother stopped by with his scan tool. No more "SERVICE ENGINE SOON" light. Besides changing the fluid in the rear end, the drivetrain is done. I'm also changing out the dryer on the A/C. I might order that tonight. I have a lot of alittle boring jobs on the van. The interior a mess.
The trim around the gauges and radio is dry and brittle. I have all the pieces going to try and fix it. $100 is just too much to spend for another one. It's hard to see but the dash pad is pulling away from the dash. The armrest on the driver door is terrible.
I didnt know, until today that there are 2 different door panels for this van. My van has this type.
The armrest is not removable. Which sucks for me.
This door has removable armrests, no cloth at the top, and no carpet at the bottom. I'm not sure what the interior of the donor van looks like yet, but my plan is to recover all interior panels and headliner then transplant them into my van. Needing a trip to the "you pull it". Looking for a hitch. If I get lucky and find one. I will be towing the donor van home (bad trans in donor) next week. My van is my daily, so really wanting the donor. After interior, future plans would be to get the subframe from donor rolled in to the garage. I will slowly build it. Not sure on the details yet. I'm thinking 350ci, suspension upgrades, brakes. Not sure on trans, but definitely an auto and 2 wheel drive. I will do the same with donor rear end. Lots of research between now and then. I want cheap and reliable. Not a racer, but would like to pull a nice camper. Any info or tips would be greatly appreciated. I will try to get the passenger window fixed tomorrow. Changed both switches today, still only works up. Wish me luck.
