Re: Lucky

Got the windows fixed up.. Sort of, one still doesn't close 100%, seems like the gears might be stripped or something.

Re: Lucky

Dropped off my van this morning with my body work guy Chin Chin. Wanted to fix one of two imperfections on the van when I bought it (small dent on right rear). $100 later it's all fixed.

I don't. He built a steel angle iron frame to bolt to tent and van which acts as the transition. He then has slats (like on an Ikea bed) to hold up the bed up top. If you want more details, shoot me an email and I'll put you in touch. He probably has zero pictures of the build though, knowing him.

Yes, well, my guy speaks no English and works in the backyard behind a taqueria in a bad part of town. But he's honest, does really good work, and is cheap!

Re: Lucky

It's amazing some of the dents they can fix with paintless dent removal! We had a few ones fixed on our Honda minivan that I never thought they'd be able to fix (inaccessible places, etc.). It's usually fairly reasonable, too.
