Definitely interested, but then again, I don't even own a van.

Ok cool, just wanted to make sure at least a few people were interested. I’ll inquire about a game plan. I know we are picking up a couple of wrecked Tesla’s today as donor cars, but other than that I’m in the dark on path forward.

What section should I start the thread in?? Electronics, camp fire, or maybe drivetrain?

Yep, more interest here. Do you have enough yet or should I invent some new profiles?

^^^ lmao, naw weíre good. No need for fake profiles. Just wanted to make sure people here were open to the idea. Itís not widely accepted in the different automotive circles. Weíve got a lot of positive feedback for the vehicles weíve done so far, but it definitely came with some negativity. Itís all good though, cant please everyone. What started off as an experiment just to see if we could turned into its own entity. We even had a few guys get shipped off to a movie set in another state to convert some vehicles for a show coming out soon.

I did inquire today about the build, but itís not finalized. So Iím not at liberty to share anything just yet, but now that I know thereís a few folks here interested, Iíll start gathering info for when I can.
