I dont want to scare you but you may need to check the area for a wolverine thats been gnawing on your van.

Body was long gone, I had another econoline same body style think it was a 94 as well come to think of it. And it had terrible rot on the driver side floor pan at the body mount same as this van. Was fun to sawzall it all up, with the glass it was 1750 pounds of scrap.

Thank you man! to me that is what its all about. Creating something with your own hands and using parts from things that should never be considered as a fabrication material, let alone an automotive part lol. Cant wait to see car show guys faces when I start telling the story of this thing

Default An update

Well I drove it! Had a really productive Monday last week got headlights and taillights wired up and ripped it down the road. To clear the brake booster I used a long 1/2 socket extension and a universal for a steering linkage, and a pc of bicycle handlebar to pass through the firewall, very sketchy has that poker in a coal bucket feel to it. Exhaust isnt finished it dumps behind the passenger seat for now very loud lol but we had a great time

Default Tires!

My dad brought over some 31x12.50 15 thornbirds on VW wheels, told him i had to have them, ordered some 12 wide rims from summit this morning. Will be fabbing small diameter square tube to puff the rear fenders out to fit those meats in the back they are about 14 wide on 12 wheels.

I am inspired! I was going to junk my 89 F150 but I think I'll hold off on that. Great job. Jim

Cool

15x12 with 3.5 backspacing, kind of rolled the dice on these looks like they should fit. Cheesed my breaker bar on the rusty lugs lol so it remains unknown for tonight.
