This guy isn't being truthful. .. he was hauling ******** down a road and hit a big whoop the pics that first hit the web failed to show the damage on his trailer, he bent the axle on his trailer he hit the whoop so hard. Just trying to get money for his own screw up.
The rubber boot that goes around the steering column is my choice, use an awl poke a hole push the wire through seals itself nothing to worry about. I probably have 5 different wires going that way and have never had a problem.
So I haven't done anything in awhile and I was going to sell it but got no takers so now I'm just going to finish it up and more than likely convert it over to a diesel. So here is the side ladder made up and installed. No more climbing up the front fender to access the roof rack.
I installed some blinds from home depot... now I have some privacy.... (and they were inexpensive :) )
I also added the magazine rack to the inside of the door to hold my paper map's and books.It is hinged at the top so I can lift it up and still have access the the inside door storage.
belltown bikes.... I made the door panels from 1/4" plywood, the carpet is glued directly to that with 3M spray glue. I also glued carpet to the actual inside of the door so it looks nice and acts as a sound deaden-er (sc)? as far as water goes Ive never had a problem with the ford vans rusting...
I get moisture build up even if I dont use it, so I might as well stay warm with wet windows in the morning....:) My desert trip was real cold at night and the condensation built up pretty good. I didnt have the reflectix yet just my mini blinds and the cold still came through.
My van started out as a passenger van so I have a ton of glass... this last trip to the desert the cold came through the glass something fierce sooooo... off to Home Depot for some Reflectix. All the windows now have there own little panel.
I was trying to figure out how I was going to store...
I got tired of using the "bungee" method of holding the side door open so I made my own version of someone else idea for a door holder.
I also got my solar set up... I picked this kit up from Solar blvd. they are only 15 miles from my house. I decided to get the 160 watt folding panel kit...
