Hey Sam! Very nice work you're doing on your Sportvan!

I've always loved the Chevy rally wheels but thought they might look too "busy" on our vans. But your use of the simpler hub caps does the trick! I really wanted white walls on mine and, just like my first van, I had to go with the simple baby moons!

Thanks, guys. I got the center caps and trim rings from Davids Rally Wheels.

I switched over to a new Sanden 508 AC compressor. Way quieter and cooler than the old pancake style that was on it before. I'm going to drive over to Daytona for the Turkey Van Run on the 17th so I should be able to see how everything works. It would be nice to see some of you guys if anyone can make it.

Looks great! Not only cool on the outside... but inside as well. I would bet you that NO other GMC will be there that is half as great as yours. I really wish I had either more money or more talent with mechanics. I would love disc brakes and air conditioning.

Have a really fun time! Wish I could just push a button and appear on the other side! POOF!! What a Face

I had a child labor sweat shop going at the house Sunday. My daughter got me some fabric for Christmas to make curtains so we got down to it. The wife jumped in too so that eliminated the need for me! cheers
