Re: "Eduardo" -2003 Chevrolet Quigley IFS 4x4 build

End result. Awesome. At least to me. I like the look a lot and it now makes the truck bed liner that wraps around the hood show a lot better.

I like the little touch of chrome as well and think it looks nice with the black bumpers.

I want the aluminess sets. And a local company can install them for the Web listed price. But ouch. So much

Its on the wish list.

Re: "Eduardo" -2003 Chevrolet Quigley IFS 4x4 build

My dad came over and helped get the seats and belts installed. I now have legal seating for 7. I'll add a couple more later in the back with a fold out bed.

They are from Atwood. I pulled them out of a wrecked chariot conversion van. Fronts are powered. I just rewired the connectors for the factory seat to make them work. The connector for seat power was there just unused.

The middle captain chairs have the square plate mounted to the floor, with integrated seat belts. So the chair can be easily pulled.

The rear bench folds into a two section bed. Not quite long enough for me. The back of the rear bench is mounted with about 6 feet from the door. It mounts to the floor with four screw down mounts that go to permanant plates and can be pulled out easily enough as well. The rear seat belts mount to the floor and can be pulled if needed. I doubt I'll need that though.

The shoulder harness mount to plates with welded nuts in installed in the beam that runs front to back. I ordered them new from Atwood. The plates even have a handle about 5 inches long on them to make it easy to position them From all the holes in the beam. They get locked in with some self tapping screws and the seat belt bolt.

Underneath I have large plates under the seat belts mounts and bench mounts. all the bolts are 1/2 inch. Combination of Carriage bolts and regular depending in the location and what was near. Around the fuel tank was tricky. And getting behind some of the heat shields was difficult. Had to cut a couple holes in them or remove them to install a couple of the backing plates.

I also scored a vantred mat for the whole rear of the van. It's pretty nice. Not quite as good as the ads claim. I had the whole floor coated with liner. It was just a little to loud for me though. I'll start with the vantred and maybe something else as well later.

Rear a/c heater install.

I pulled an ac/heat unit and all of its wiring(the whole harness from the driver pillar back) swithches sensors and ducts from a 2001 extended van.

Pulling all of the wiring and switches sensors will make the install fairly easy.

Mine had the main power wires in place behind the driver seat. I also had to tap the dimmable over head lights to make the switches dim correctly with the rest of the dash.

The van had the wiring for ac but since I used a 2001 set it didn't line up correctly. So I used the main power and ground. And the light dimmer from the factory harness. All of the other wires I pulled from the older van and just ran with my main harness to the rear.

I had to cut a hole in the floor for the heat and ac lines. Installed the floor running ducts and the main one that goes to the roof. Since I don't have a rear headline I'll use some custom vents to route the air going up.

The ac harness has the two control switches and a sensor switch that need to be installed. That's why I grabbed the whole harness from behind the driver seat to the back of the van from my donor. At home. I separated the harness and just installed the donor wires alongside my harness.

I had to have custom heat and ac lines run to the back from the front of the van.

Works well. Heat and ac for the back.

Longview towing mirrors.

I'd love the extendable mirrors that I had on my truck. But I like these and the install was very easy.

The look nice. Are formed well and in over 2 straight years on the van. No issues.

Manual adjustments. Works nice with my car hauler.

Thule "300" gutter mount feet with load bars. Picked these up for a song. Had the bars from other vehicles. Now I have a roof option. Although, when I showed my dad he said, "how the hell are you supposed to get up there?"

Good question.

The van as it sits today. I still want aluminess bumpers. A pop top or maybe roof top tent.

And the interior walls will be next to be worked on.

Memorial day sales are awesome. Just picked up the bulk of fabric and vinyl to flesh out my interior. It'll take a bit of work for a few spots but it should be fun.

Any good ideas on making marine grade vinyl and headliner fabric sick to hardboard?

Even though its kinda pricy 3M's 08088 spray adhesive is great for this. In fact it was originally intended for similar applications.

There are other less expensive spray adhesives but because I personally tend to opt for the best product for a job I'd choose 3M every time. I've used Elmer's and Loctite's versions but neither worked as well over time.

Water-based contact cement would also work well---over the solvent based type.

Of course all this is subjective as we don't know what your end result goal is. Are you padding and covering seating areas or merely using the vinyl as just a headliner type thing?
