This van is mine. Rather than post more pics of it, I thought I would just claim ownership of it. I might post more pics but right now it is 9am and 10 degrees and I don't want to go outside :-)

Nice looking vehicle, I especially like the diesel inside stickers, did you find those or make them ?
I notice the paint is not sticking so well in a few places.
When we painted ours it's Red too, (interlux marine paint *) we sanded the hole thing and then put an epoxy sealer, followed by primer, then the red.
Where we had bare aluminum showing we cleaned it thoroughly and then used aluminum primer before the above.
It's been 18 months now and it still looks pretty good.

*we used the interlux because we had a couple of gallons left over from painting our boat, we ordered way too much. :P

you can buy them on ebay... i made some for my burnt toast as i have a plotter/cutter...

is my next project... :D

sadly who ever did the previous paintwork on it sucked... its way too thick in places and is pealing from that... needs a good striping..

when doing the waterpump i told the owner the headgasket is starting to fail.. pressurizing the cooling system a titch bit.. so on its way over for that today... :(

Red, white and Blue, Nice.
I think if you save this as a smaller size they might display the whole picture.
I downloaded it and it is complete, just not viewing on the BB.
I checked this in the system before and it seems to be set for the max

Hi OXBOW, I know this was sometime back but I too am in the Kingston area. Did these vans go up to the Shandakan area?

I'm looking for a pair of bumpers and headlight trim just wondering if he would have any parts around.

Thanks - Terry Saugerties, N.Y.
