DO NOT use that hinge pin beater thing you have. Thats not what I meant. The correct tool is like a small press. No beating required. Heres one that would probably work.

Thanks econo, that definitely looks easier, I'll check it out!

Aaaaand here are some photos!

This is the torpedo heater I got running this weekend. I'm going to sand it and repaint it next time I get some time......


Here are the bumper brackets.. They're in good shape and will be in better shape after a trip to the sandblaster!


The back door after a lot of sanding.. A lot more to go!


Serious cancer....! This is the worst of it. Behind the bumper..! There are two spots like this back here and another one on the driver's side.


The gas tank! In great shape!


Here's the future hinge setup for the back windows (hopefully!) I'll keep you updated on the progress.. Won't be working on it for awhile though.


The hitch... Will be beautiful one day!


Here's a picture of the Carter YF swap we did.. Works fantastic!


The Falcon steering wheel..


Not original, but in great shape.. I think I'll keep them!


The original bench seat. I might be getting rid of it....


And that's it for now! I'll keep you updated as I make progress..

So my weekend starts tomorrow and I'm hoping to get some work done on the van! My goal is to remove the doors with my new hinge popper thing (the crank one at the link above, we'll see how it works!) and lay them down on some horses to get all of them sanded down to bare metal. If I have some time, I'll spend it sanding the rest of the van. I'll post some pictures of my progress!

Thanks for the encouragement! I'm trying to be patient while plugging away at it whenever I have the time. There is a lot of work ahead of me but I'm enjoying every moment!
