Looks sweet Tom. Love the rear with no doors. Are you leaving black or are you going to color coat?

I am planning to make it over to get a look at that awesome progress yet this week Tom! That van has made a complete transformation for sure. I have to totally agree with Gman, you truly are an early saver.

Stopped today and saw the great bodywork skills in person! I saw this van when Tom first started on it and I must say this thing looks great, sounds good as well. Truly a sleeper, noone would believe there is a big block in there until the go pedal is hit! Next time I am sure it will be screaming down the street nicely!
