I epoxied the base of the Venturi Vent and she is water tight now, at least down there. I'm not gonna take the waterproof tape off the top because it is stuck on really well. I don't care about the look because it is just a beater vent. I think I will throw it on the truck camper shell until I redo the paneling.

I found an '83 Chevy G20 in a local yard. It had a lot of nice stuff inside but reeks of cat pee. I took what I wanted from it but I don't think I will do it again because of how bad it is.

It has these sweet side windows on it.

It has a bunch of cool interior panels and dividers, but I couldn't spend more than a few minutes inside.

We're throwing away third gen vans out here like they grow on trees.

This makes me so mad. No rust, it is just missing its emissions components.

Has a 302 with the original carb. It might not sell and then it'll get tossed into the yard to be parted and then scrapped.

I imagine if you take those windows out and leave it a week or so it will smell a lot better inside

I found a 1981 short Dodge panel in a local yard while searching some junkyards online. Gonna get up early tomorrow and hit it at opening. It has a wing, flares, and a vent. Might be some good pickings, especially if it has a slider.

*EDIT* A friend of mine went over a few days ago. Said it isn't anything special and is bare inside.

I just got back from Montana yesterday and I was exhausted. Slept all night and had today off so I decided to hit up two yards about an hour south of me. Glad I did. They had some vans for the last couple of months and most were pretty untocuhed.

Locally we have an RV salvage place that is a huge warehouse and then an out lot. I finally went over to check it out. It has no form of organization what so ever. The perfect place to hunt.

This is how the aisles are.

I was able to come out with a few cool items. Originally I wanted to sell them but I like them so much I'm gonna keep them.

The lights are gold vein like the tiles. I paid a bit more than I wanted to but where else am I gonna find some of this stuff?

This guy is sitting across from the warehouse waiting to be dismantled.

The shop also has some NOS Venturi Vent cranks that I plan to pick up and sell once they find them. They have 5 or 6 pairs of them.

I still have some more tail lights to clean up and post for sale but here was some more of my junkyard haul. I didn't even get to see everything because of the early morning heat.

Not junkyard per se, but this was spotted in Idaho on our way back on Sunday.

[Linked Image from i.ibb.co]

I'd ever seen so many vans and trucks parked that looked ready for restoration as I did driving through Idaho and Montana.

Charlie what are those extenders off of? I'm still needing one for my Chevy.

Nice scores on those lights man, they look killer.
