Hey Magic, my 65 has holes too, Other people on this site know I spent 3.5 years looking for a rust free van, the model I wanted and then paid whatever to own it and get it home. A van body like this dosn't come easy or cheep. all you need is the vision, the determination, and rob a bank or two, you too could have one.

I'm going to either have the van of my dreams or go to jail trying!!

I did a 15 hour, hard labour shift on Sat, roughed in the bondo and got a first coat of high build onto it. Sunday I worked the bondo lines a little and laid on two more coats of high build.









now the hard work starts, "Blocking"

M1, are you painting it in a plane hanger? Makes a nice background for the van! Love the Mellow Yellow color!
