On a side note, does anyone know if the raised lip of the ac bezels around the dash vents were treated with the same silver outline. If they were not factory that way, I fell like they would look great in the matching paint outline. When I pull the dash for other work at a later date, I will clean the vents, spray the faded chrome with chrome paint and trim those bezels with the same paint lines. I will also add some new felt rings the proper thickness to keep the vents pointed where you point them, these vents always loosen up and flop around. This will never be a like new restored van but from a driving vantage point I want it as clean and new feeling as I can make it looking over the dash.

Spent some time with the family. Went to my cousins college graduation and the party my aunt and uncle threw for her. Then spent a couple of days with my sisters, my brother in-law, my mom, and neice and nephew. I spent some time teaching my 5 year old nephew how to fish. Caught some crappie and a channel cat off the dock of the Air B&B she rented.

Started on this project again after the rain vanished and the sun came out late this afternoon. The rear doors now have the butyl sound deadener applied in them to the exterior door skin. I would guess about 85% coverage inside. It was a bit of a pain working through the small openings in the inner door structure but I feel will be worth it. Made a dramatic difference in the sheetmetal rattle empty beer can effect that plagues the doors in these vans. When the front door panels come off the front doors are getting the same treatment.

I also found a pair of front inner door handle mechanisms on Holley's Memorial day sale that look like they will fit. They are listed for a 67-71 C10 but look identical to the vans. For $40 for the pair, willing to take a gamble. The front interior handles will no longer be sloppy and loose if the gamble pays off.
