Definitely interested. Even production isn't feasible, maybe you should consider selling the pattern for other to make their own. I, for one, would be willing to buy the pattern alone.

Hi guys, thanks for your patience. I think we have a plan that will get these things into production. Another Vintage-Vans member has offered to handle the ordering, production, and shipping of these panels! I'll never have the time but I will convey all of the details involved in making them.

He has access to a laser that can handle material big enough to cut the panel out of one piece. We'll have to look into shipping something that long. And I'm curious to see if more parts will need to be removed to install a long one-piece panel.

Next step, I need to send him some drawings so he can get a quote, along with the sources for the materials, so we can come up with a price.

Hang in there!

Gary is the guy that's going to make this thing happen! He has my master file and is working out the details.

Chevbone, pretty impressive that you were able to remove that panel so well, and that it was still in that good of shape! I would like to see a straight-on, close-up photo of that area where the engine wire loom comes through it. I'm pretty sure I got it right but it would be nice to have a shot of one that is still intact.

My van still had the stock turquoise floormat and almost as good a shape as yours, but still not good enough to leave her in there. Tears and stains I can't get out. I'm not sure what I'm going to put on the floor up front but I like the idea of something easier to clean then carpet.

Is this what you're looking for? Also what will you be using to hold the panel to the wall? I managed to save one of these plastic guys that hold the original one. Brothers has them but not sure if they are the correct ones.

Hi Scott,
There is progress - slow but it is moving. Laser guy is onboard, I committed to him a checked paper template. First pass template did not fit properly (Rich's files are pretty good) just tweaking our plot scale, minor adjustments etc. in work. Both the plotter & CAD work are gratis from friends & family so I not pushing the time line.
It is move along. Helpful incentive is I need one also!
