I picked up 3 more yards of diamonds today to start covering trim panels, dash, dash pad, a pillars, and I'll try to do the header panel where the console meets the windshield.

I swapped one velour seat over to mine. Spent a lot of time trying to clean them and was going to try to recolor them but it looked like I would probably wreck them doing it. Probably should have got the black leather Olds Toronado seats, but those are power and I never measured to see what the bolt spacing is.

I did learn you can't put a power track on a manual base on at least 90-95. Height difference. Could not lower the seat enough to clear my legs under the wheel. You can make the track I had (out of a 97 conversion) fit and swap the seats around but then I couldn't drive it that way. So went back to the manual track.

I also picked up a Sun Super Tach II at the flea market today. All of five bucks. Probably DOA, but what the heck.

Good score! Fingers crossed for ya, love those!

What did I do to my van today? Drove it... a bunch

I ran around the city all day grabbing shit for a 91 b350 I just picked up. Grabbed some stainless hardware and supplies to paint and mount the visor (going to try well-nuts this time), picked up some hi-jacker rear air shocks to give the 285 75 16 mickey thompson's a little breathing room, also found some decent wagon wheel rims (8x6.5, my lucky day!) and a cheapo unmounted wooden steering wheel (grant knock-off) on the buy and sell.

So, what did I do to my van today? Dumped another five hundo and made a bunch of work for myself.. Hah!

I'm a sucker for Suntune II gauges and tachs.

Nothing I did to my van today, I am waiting to collect the dash pad from the upholsterer. He's had it since start of December and hasn't done any work on it. I figure I'll just wrap it the way I wrapped the console and be done with it. But I have been working on that ratty sunroof that I replaced the crank on.

I sanded down the frame as best as I could. There are still some scuffs and scratched but they aren't sharp like they were. I taped off the edges of the glass but I did get a lot of overspray onto the glass. I painted it the same aluminum color they were originally. I'll use a razor and clean off the glass. I finally used some very small marine/auto weather stripping I got from Ace and so far so good. I am going to do the bottom ring soon and call it done.

I still don't know if I will sell it or keep it because of how nice it is turning out. Who knows, I may just trade it down the road.

Nice but your gonna want to wrap that insulation in bags due to the insulation will retain moisture and rot your walls.

Your wood working skils are fantastic !

Had the Catalytic Converter replaced after some Crack-Head cut it off in the middle of the night!

I don't know how the racket didn't wake anyone up!?! The perp must have used a sawz-all and the racket should have woke the dead. We live in a fairly nice neighborhood too, so it makes it even more aggravating when crap like this happens.

It literally took all day for the cop to finally come out to take my report. The neighborhood social media app has reported an uptick in crime lately but police won't do anything, even with clear video evidence of the identity of the perps involved in some cases. The minute someone shoots the POS, guess who would decide to show up to selectively enforce the law?

Crack-head might have made a hundred bucks off the deal from the price of platinum, rhodium, palladium or whatever else is in the thing. It cost me $250 in parts and labor and a day of vacation time off work, waiting around playing phone tag with the police and finally having one come in person to report the incident.

OK... rant done! My van is back now and where it sounded like a Top-Fuel Dragster at 5:00 this morning, it is now rollin' in stealth mode.
