Parts came in yesterday, (idle air control, tps, air and fuel filters, vac lines). Hope to knock that out quick. I also have new door pins and handles. Next I want to start gathering parts and info on making the slider into a gulwing. Im starting with the things that are giving me the most problems first. Both front door handles are bad and the slider is horrible. So far, I have done the front suspension, replaced all intake gaskets and seals, new heads(#6 was dead when i got the van), and a tune-up. Basic stuff, nothing fun yet. Im working on buying a 2004 Safari as a parts/mock-up van. Basically plan on stripping it and scraping the rest. I have 5 kids, the van will be a family road trip/weekend camper van. So, the seats will be staying. (Its an 8 pass.) Thanks for the comments! I been looking around for a while and was thinking posting pics of the van will keep progress going. So many great ideas and tons of bad ass vans. Thanks for the warm welcome.
