Someone had removed the bumper and the guard. I even got the fog lights. I didn't even need to remove my tools from the bag.

I was able to "liberate" this tag from the rear door of what used to be a really nice 80's Dodge conversion. It had the whole package: flares, visor, rear sunroof, running boards, interior with a fold out bed. It was a very nice rig at one point.

El Kapitan is still in business down in LA. They only do Sprinter conversions and the original owner sold the business five years ago. No luck on a warehouse full of old parts.

This Ford hit my local yard yesterday morning and I was there yesterday afternoon. The flares were all busted up, but the interior was such a cream puff, other than the previous owner using expanding foam all over the cabinets, ruined them. My friends might go and pull the seats and bed but there isn’t much for me to take.

I'm surprised you didn't get the seats. They look pretty good.

I made a quick trip before we hit the road for Santa Cruz. There’s about 5 other vans that just hit another yard that I’ll check out this weekend.

No, they were all cracked. Flares also. I’m going back tomorrow to maybe pull the seats. I dunno yet.
