I glared at the van still in primer, trying to mentally will it to paint itself...

In other news, I just picked up a free power steering set up for it from a guy who couldn't sell it. I'm reasonably sure 95% of it is there, it just needs a reservoir.

What my van did for me ....

Hauled 30 bags of mulch for the yd, Fertilizer for the 28 fruit trees, 2 new Apple trees, steer poop, also hauled 20 bags of Raised Bed garden soil to start my box gardens.

Then it hauled my azz to In-n-Out for burgers n fries.

I did do some wood working for the van ...

Washed vacuumed cleaned the van from the trip, and get ready for truck in next week. Son is going to fix my power steering hose tomorrow. Nothing else hanging down, sticking out, coming loose, or leaking I can see.

Hung some more panels in my shorty, fixed a vacuum leak in my big E350, now I gotta get surgery to correct an issue with an implanted device that got flipped while leaning in my big van, the joy of whats to come is so much to look forward to, one day I'd love to finish my shorty.

I picked these up today. They need a complete restore but considering how rare they are, I figure it's worth it.

Bought a set of Patriot side pipes yesterday. Summit wouldn't ship them to California; Jegs did. Once I get them after some welding work - off to Oklahoma at Jet-Hot for some ceramic coating. Will do the same when I get my headers. This place is off the hook. Check out their website and videos.

Started the powertrain build in February. "Hope" to be done in September. Complete Powertrain build and entire new suspension. Sorry I haven't posted pics; I still don't know how and at the end I will have
a whole lot and if I can't figure it out I'll have someone help.

I was lucky and found them on marketplace. I think they were spot welded with the lenses installed because there is no way to get them out without breaking the lenses. I am going to see if the guy who is making bubbles for me can cut the old welds and make me new bubbles, then weld them back up. I'll restore them and resell to someone for their ride.

That's wild they wouldn't ship, but it makes sense because CA's laws around emissions are so strict. I had the same problems when I was buying pipes for my chopper. No one would ship them to me in CA until I found a dude on Amazon. He was located in the south somewhere and he shipped them no problem.
