The show must go on!
So as everyone knows or maybe doesn't know I was trying to sell this van. Apparently this van is a curse because everyone absolutely loves this van when I am out and about but no-one wanted to buy it. Oh except for the guy that low balled me.
Either way its me myself and this van still so I am going to continue to build it the way I want which includes a side window. I am going install the rear passenger side window first to see if that will suffice because id love to use the drivers side rear for storage sleeping etc. I am going to go with the window that fits in the stock location so if all goes well it should look like it came from the factory with that window except with a frame and a t slider, so maybe not really ha ha.
But I did make some progress today and like they say, 1 step forward and 2 steps back.
1 step forward = moving the rear shock mounts on the axle back to their stock location. Advanced had moved them up and out of the way on it which is cool and all but when I would put the van on the lift I realized that all of the axle weight was hanging by those shocks. Not so great. I still had the shocks I ordered from Ujoint for the rear way back in the beginning of this thread so I moved the mounts for those to fit correctly and now I am happy.
2 steps back = First step, while under the van today MG noticed that the transmission mount on the crossmember wasn't a stock ford mount. For whatever reason Advanced wanted to do a custom job on the mount which made all the dots connect in my head as to why my transfer case hangs a little lower than the others and why my driveline angle looks good without a CV joint on the transfer case side.
Second step - Realizing that I will now be needing not only the stock ford transmission mount but also a new rear driveline and now the exhaust won't be getting fixed until those are done.
All in all I am happy I still have the van and am learning more and more each day.
