NDJ I love the sunroof, It would also solve a few dents I have in the roof. Where and how much. Your van looks great and I can't wait to be at that point with my van.
Keep up the good work and the pics. ~ GK.

Went to MidSouth Econoline meet...




Some more update over the last few months. A new gas tank...



New window seals on front doors...




Was running like crap after going to Cruisin the Coast, so used that as perfect excuse to convert to a 2bbl...






Getting new side barn doors ready...

One of my rims was too rusted on the seal edge to hold air . So, I bought some new 8" rally wheels & tires for the back. I also bought and converted an Astro or Safari van spare tire mount to hold my (now) spare rally wheel.
