Doesn't look to bad though? You found the mouse nest in a rocker, Blowing out the frame rails isn't a bad idea either. Got a collection of rodent stuff out of my 66 doing that.
Tom you sure can move fast on that body stuff. I'm always stuck in 1st or reverse!

A little more progress on the L side. This side had had some damage too, at one time.
Who ever fixed it did a good job (30 years ago) I ended up using one of the Cail doors from Mark. Instead of trying to fix rusted out and dented door

Got some exopy on the L side, been alot of long day's(& nights) Starting to look like something agin, now all the stuff I got to get to put it back together. Try figure out how to hold port hole windows in(didn't come with inside rings) I can almost see it doing burn outs again. Cool More to come.

Your van is moving along nicley just my 2 cents use some thin clip angle to hold the port hole in place then make a piece of wood or alluminun to trim it out.
