    Hi Everyone,

    My name's Chris and I live in Langley, BC Canada. Just purchased a 67 Ford Supervan (5 year old daughter named it Blue Lightning). I'm certainly not gonna brag about my mechanical skills. I really wasn't much of a car guy until my Dad passed and left me a 64 Impala years ago. These days crusing with my family and tinkering with the Impala (and now Blue Lightning) are my favorite things to do. I've been eyeballing your site for about a year now while searching for my van. I've picked up some great tips and advice from your posts. Thank you. I'm in over my head, and will need some more help in the near future. I'll post some pix asap.

    Blue Lightning looks great! Looks like you are doing some real nice grunt work on the floor. Are you planning to use POR-15 or equivalent to protect it once you're done? It's gonna look great when it's done and you'll be rewarded for all the hard work! Virgin Vanny Cool12

    Thanks. Ya. Certainly was a bugger. I took as much as I could down to bare metal, then used a similar rust converter called Rust Not. Topped the bed with Herculiner. Turned out great and I'm pretty sure it's bulletproof now. I'll throw some pix on when I get this animal into the sunshine. sunny

    It's comin...thanks. Anybody got any idea what the two small holes are above the Econoline emblem in picture #1?  They look real clean, and maybe factory.  Was there another emblem?  Nothing I've researched belongs there.  Thx
