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.

Got some good news today. The lower patch panels were welded in over the weekend. The windshield sill is all ground out and cleaned. That’s next but I have to removed all of my interior panels because we don’t want a fire to start.

So, today I had a few items to do, front brakes where squeaking when I stopped, so did them, turns out they where at about 50% but replaced them anyway, also repacked the bearings while there, and replaced the front shocks too. While working on the van, I saw that the rear sway bar mount had lost a nut and bolt, so will fix that tomorrow.

Just a tidbit. I stripped the wood out in preparation for welding. The foam isn’t near any welding but wanted to reduce the risk of a fire. Progress!
