When you bring in the pics, change the pixel settings in the drop down box from the default 800 pixels to 640, that should take care of the cutting off. Nice Ride!

Congratulations! That's a good looking van. Looks good and straight for the most part. Better than mine. The front end lines look very crisp, and in general. Same problems they all have in the rear quarters. They catch all the crap off the road. That's not a rust hole in the front passengers fender is it? One thing that's interesting to me is that lower body seam on the drivers side along the rocker. My 64 doesn't have that, just the one above it

That spot on the passenger fender is just where the paint chipped off, I'll sand that down and put some primer on it.

Doghouse looks Great...nice to have access to sandblaster! Those taillights are a nice upgrade. The chrome sets them off nicely.

A wise man knows a good idea when he "steals" one. I know what you mean. Most of the upgrades to my Epup are "stolen" or "adapted" from this forum. Looks great!

Saved and brought in at 640 pixels. Would have done it sooner but just got back from vacation in Tennessee.

Heres a pic of my gas tank. Even the top is pin striped. I wish I would have taken pics while I had it out

Here's a stupid question for you. How do I get the grill off? Its got 5 or 6 bolts holding it on but there are nuts on the inside of a channel(?) that I cant see or get to. The bolts just spin. I only got to mess with it about 10 minutes tonite. Thanks

That can happen, they're either knurled or tacked into the channel. I think just knurled. I had one spin and had to cut the bolt, then re tack the nut to the channel to get the remainder out. Use antisieze when you put them back in and it's not a bad idea to tack weld all of the nuts when the grill is off if you are doing body work anyway.
