Yeah, the grille goes in this winter. I am really looking forward to getting it finished. The roof had some holes in the gutters, nothing we couldn't patch. I am getting LASIK next week so I'll be out of working on the van for a couple of weeks.

Finally fitting the flares and lining it all up. Once I get back from the LASIK, I'll cut the sunroof in and get it fitted. I can't wait because I really went in restoring it myself. All the way to the right kind of rubber for it. I still don't think I will be on the road in the van this summer. Especially with 5.50 gas in my neighborhood. My goal is to get the Mustang road worthy and upgraded with a few things for summer and fix a couple spots I didn't like when it was painted a few years ago. Due to theft, the top priority for me was a garage space. I was able to find one and I am making it work.

The tunnel ram was the first thing I moved in.

Once summer is over, I'll swap over a trac lok rear end with some 3.80 gears as a boulevard cruiser. Just retire her from the freeway. I'm on the look out for a toploader but have resigned myself to the fact I may just go T5 and be done with it.

Nice work as my buddy has a 69. Farrah! Best poster ever!

but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up,
totally worn out, and proclaiming

I want to thank Samhain for getting me the tie rod for my van. It was an awesome part supplied by an even more awesome member. Thank you!

I brought a ratty Martin sunroof back to life over the last few weeks. I finally have the perfect sunroof for my van.

I also found a decent set of Thrush Outsiders for my van, I can't wait to get them installed but I will probably have to wait until spring.
