Taking on a 1992 Dodge redesign

I'm the recent owner of a 1992 Dodge B350 penthouse top that I'm hoping to give an updated look to. Living in Michigan currently but have some good folks in Colorado that I will be travelling to before winter sets in! I have some pictures of it previously, looks good in pictures but unfortunately has some less noticeable problem areas that we want to make sure to give it a proper deep clean so it has some better days ahead! I've already been looking around at different projects and updates people have performed for the tops, the canvas, the bars and I know there will be plenty more to come!

I have an old 1980 dodge class C Broughm 20’ with a 1979 440 engine. The front clip is largely the same.

It still runs but lots of problems with vapor lock /fuel pumps and carburation with the newer fuel mixtures. EFI is the way to go but it is a labor of love putting so much money and effort in an old vehicle like mine. Is this. 92 EFI? What engine 360?

Thank you! Looking forward to being creative with the layout on the long base. The engine is the 360 with EFI. I can imagine having to deal with vapor lock would be frustrating. Been there before with some other vehicles.

Cool classic. I wouldn't change a thing, though I agree with your updates and rehabs on the top. I mean I wouldn't change a thing cosmetically on the outside. If you start you'll want to change everything. Just my .02 of course.

Are those T-slider windows upside down? I have never seen those type of windows in that orientation.

Sweet looking unit.

Update it all you like, but please keep that paint scheme.

.. or in that location (mid-ship). Would love to see some pics of the inside.
