From that angle, those bumpers look like they belong on that gen2! How much difference in the body gap (center versus ends).......Great deal, Solo!....I wonder what they would cost to ship to Lake Havasu, Az (86404) (?)

JMO..What I would do is wrap each one individually in a old blanket or quilt use some masking tape to tape the bumpers together and then wrap (fold) some card board around them (triangle shape) like from a old refrigerator box and then tape it together it does not have to be pretty just enough to protect them then drop them off at a UPS drop off point it will be a lot cheaper than segueing a pick up.!!!...My guess would be between $100,00 & $125,00 to ship them ...$300,00 for the pair is a "Good Deal" and they look "Really" good on 1st or 2nd gen Van's Good Luck Solo..!!!... Very Happy

Ok, so I got to see the van in person over the weekend and yes I will be picking it up on Saturday, its gonna take tlc but its going to be great. Sadly there is no gas tank at all, currently he has a gas can behind the passengers seat engeine sounds good and turns over easily so it runs, he installed a new master cylinder on the brakes before he abandoned the project, so it stops, and nothing is sized up so it steers and rolls (needs new tires though). Looks like, (here's hoping anyway) most of the work on this thing besides a good tune up and such will be cosmetic.

Given the tank situation I'll be picking up one of these http://www.brotherstrucks.com/prodinfo.asp?number=GTPDS66 from everything I've read it will fit (even if it hangs down an extra inch or two), and its on sale so its in a more reasonable ball park. now that being said seems that I'll have to buy a filler neck, not a problem, my question is the vents. With what , or how do I cap off the unneeded vents. and what do I do with the actual vent. (most of my gas tank experiance has been on bikes.)

Unfortunately I already pulled the trigger on the new tank before seeing that vintage one, but I'll console myself by saying it's cheaper and comes with the sending unit. I'll be on the lookout to replace it with a stock one maybe after I get it in primo shape though. Also, if anyone can help with my vent questions that would be awesome. Also I'm going to replace the fuel line to the engine, if it's even still there to begin with. Does anyone know how long and what size line I will need.

You will need a vent on the tank. The original used a small 1/2" ( I think) line back up to the filler. Something at least this size I think would be needed to displace the air when filling it. Maybe not that big? I don't know. Originally a 5/16 line was feeding the 6 bangers. If you are changing everything out , if possible shoot for a 3/8" line if the sending /pick up is that size.
