    That's a pretty sweet lookin grille, normally I don't care for custom grilles, but yours came out looking GOOD!

    It will look great with a chrome bumper, when ya get one everntually.

    Can you tell us a bit more about the sunroof? Where did you get it? Is it a kit, or something you pillaged from another vehicle out of the salvage yard?

    MO...Your paint "Garnet Red Metallic" looks the same as what I used. Mine was a 1984 color.

    I actually paid more for the sunroof than I did for the van itself...It's the biggest one I could find at the time.
    http://www.streetbeatcustoms.com/newinsklitsu.html
    It's 40x20... umm...for some reason I was thinking it was 42"...maybe that's the overall width with the frame.
    Thanks for all the compliments guys...I've been working hard on van and it's nice to hear good reviews.
    The paint is called "dark garnet red metallic" It looks the same as Bvr Wally's paint...for some reason I just can't take good pic's in my garage Crying or Very sad

    Got some paint on my visor. The markings on the center rib said it was for a 1980 Ford PU. I cut off the ends and wrapped the pillars and roof corners with tinfoil. Also used tinfoil for making a mold for the ends and started slapping some glass. I think the biggest problem was the drip edge and had to make a bulge to go around it but turned out pretty sweet! I had more pics of the whole process of making this but can't find them Mad

    I order some snapcaps like they use on the lund visors so when those come in I'll get it mounted and post some pictures of it installed.

    Ok...so I couldn't wait for the snapcaps to come in and installed it today...gives the van a whole new look, almost like the top was chopped a little...very pleased with how it turned out.

    Finally got my dashpad installed...built out of fiberglass then covered with vinyl. Thought about putting the speakers in the console but would rather have the sound bounce off the windshield instead of my feet.

    wow.. that looks great! What kind of suspension do you have to have it sitting that high?

    Im new to this stuff, is that a regular height?

    All in all though, that thing is awesome. Great work. Looks like a fun van.

    When I first got the van somebody had 10" shackles on the rear of the front leafs. Why???? I don't know. I removed them and installed stock length shackles. The rear leafs are factory, never rearched, but have a nice bow to them. The front leafs lay pretty flat. It should be regular height as far as I know. I'm pretty knew to this also. This is the 3rd summer I have had my van and it's never left the garage or has been driven for over 25 years.
