Beautiful!

Thanks! Pulling the body is a huge advantage when doing this amount of work.

would it be an advantage on an actual smb? seems like theres a lot attached underneath that would have to be disconnected to lift the body up (espar units etc).

either way, that is one badass van!

Re: 7.3 Resto Project
