Hey everybody-

Just here to introduce myself and my van. My name is Tina and I picked up this ‘82 E-150 recently. I got it from a guy in Salem who did a decent amount of work (gullwing, flares, ports). I’m sitting here waiting for some new wheels and tires to get installed, so I figured it’d be a good time to start this thread. I hope to address some issues ASAP, so follow along if you’d like to see the build or offer any tips along the way!

First issue I need to address is the amount of water leaking. The rain has started in Portland and now I get to see where its all coming into the van. I don’t think the dude installed the porthole windows very well, because water is leaking in there. The conversion window on the drivers side also leaks. I believe there are multiple areas of concern. This morning when I went into the van there was a ton of condensation on the roof. Since there is a vent, multiple windows, and old weatherstripping, I have a good amount of work ahead of me.

Does anybody know the best place to find door seals for these vans? Also, any recommendations for the window leaks? Any specific type of silicone?

NICE looking van.
I would remove the aftermarket windows and re-seal them with a butyl tape. Same with roof vent. Silicone caulking doesn't hold up over time. After you address the issues, get it inside a garage with some heat, open it up and let it dry out or you'll start growing mold real quick in OR ( I lived in WA).

Thanks everybody! I’m going to start with replacing all of the door seals. Then I plan to pull the windows to re-seal them all. Gotta get it water tight before I start the interior. Luckily, I have a garage space I can store it in, until then.

Here is a pic of my new set of wheels and tires. 15x7 in the front and 15x10 in the rear. Pretty happy with how they look 😊

Gorgeous ride! Love the slots, hard to go wrong with a clean set of staggered slot rims.

Those new rims & tires look sweet. Nice stance. Your lucky to have a good storage place to keep it dry. Can't wait for the interior pics
