No, definitely not going Scooby Doo sick

Thinking of a Silver and Black
Once all my parts come in this week, I will start posting many photos.
I have it jacked up and ready to pull the entire front suspension off

Have a small dent, rear left (Driver Side) tail light was hit in, just a bit. I can probably bang it out, but going to try to find something at a junk yard I can cut from another van
Also, I dont have any rear windows. I would like doors with windows, so going to be looking for that

I plan on a clean look, clean build, nice looking and running van.

Here is a link to a previous build I made a few years back.

Had a busy weekend.
Went to a local junk yard, first time in about 10 years and found some really cool things
Found back doors with windows, little dirty, but will come clean.
The back corner has a dent, so will fix so doors close properly.
Also found the back light corner, and cut it out from another van, just need to weld in place. Never done that before, but will figure it out.
Also, and this is a big wow, found seat mounts with the spinning function. I was excited about that, wanted to be able to rotate the two front seats.
Looking forward to all the work coming ahead.

Also spent the weekend tearing down the entire front end

This is after one week owning this thing. Have lots to do
