Re: Here I go

Your van looks great! What are your plans for air conditioning in that Florida heat? Trips to Florida we do every year are the biggest reason I need air in a van.

Re: Here I go

I was just thinking to myself......that flora looks like Florida......

I used to live there (Clearwater area) and went to UF........

The van looks great, also curious to see the build.

Re: Here I go

Thanks for the interest it is a work in progress. Not complete sure just how it will turn out but I am still thinking and planing. I knew I needed to try and deal with the Florida heat that's why I went the extra with the paint I can feel the difference just working in the van today. Still thinking about A/C I am a Flordia native so I am use to heat but will come up with something.

Good guess on location guys and Boy Wonder just south of Clearwater on Longboat Key Go Gators.

Got it back together today so I can get the kid new shoes and supension next week.

Re: Here I go

I got a question and wanted to get some feedback to see what others think. I am going to install a MaxAir fan and can't decide where to put it back over the bed area or mid van. Over the bed area could cause problems when I have things on the roof racks although I can work around it.

Re: Here I go

Got a few more things done. More insulation, new side window, 2" lift and tire and wheels. Come along still thinking about the inside. Picked a set of middle row Sienna chairs now got to figure out how I will mount them.

Re: Here I go

Used EZCool over the paint. Added 17x8 wheels with toyo 265/70-17. 2" lift from action. I did not use the rear block not sure if I will add it or not. Thinking of adding the steering stablizer and rear swat bar.

it might be an Expo thread, but there's a dude that makes seat bases for Sienna to Econline. mgmetalworks i think is his handle. check it out, seems like a popular mod. and well worth it. good luck with the build.
