Just been playing with a sketchup. It's a pretty cool 3D program. Found a model of 2008 Chevrolet Express 2500 passenger. Sadly there was not a 1998. Close to what I'd like Gordon to look like in the end. Just left it white, but added some black to the hood. I think I want to put a huge folding rag top. Like the old VW. Back and forth on cutting a huge whole in the top. [Linked Image]

I'm up in the air with the front bumper. Looking at other Express vans and what is available aftermarket, so far I like the Explorer conversation van front bumper.

But at $500 plus shipping, that is not going to happen. Junkyards haven't turned up anything useable. These parts never make it in to the yard without damage. Gordon needs a facelift. [Linked Image]
I have seen some older dodge trucks with newer front bumpers. Chevrolet 1500s with 2500 front bumpers. I like the look of the G vans with chin spoilers and fender flares. So, I'm leaning more that way.

1997 2500 pick up front bumper. Its smooth and more square, tons of aftermarket options for the chin spoiler. Id have to make custom fender flares but I'm planning on changing the headlights and grill too.
