    Here's a nearly completed 65 Falcon van I am finishing up. Still have the front seats and driver's side front panel left to do.

    This looks so darn good. Gives me ideas for mine (but got way too much body work to do first). Great Job! Thanks for posting these pics.

    What kind of padding do you use for the front door panels? How thick?? Been working on front panels for mine but cannot find the correct thickness everything is too thick and handles and window cranks will not work correctly

    I use 1/2" backed foam. Most likely the problem is not the foam but the panel itself. The area around the window crank is raised about 1/4" about 2" in dia. If you let the panel rest on this it will be too thick. You have to cut a large enough hole in the panel to allow the entire raised area to fit through.
