Got my van in 2006 in Crooksville, OH. I looked for this van for about three years after seeing one in my hometown of Annapolis and not being able to convince the owner to sell it to me. Used it as a dive vehicle for the last eight years. I put a a 1991 turbo diesel and a five speed in it and painted it with awlgrip.

Heh, great, lets see some pictures of the awlgrip dive van.
My Red van gets used as a dive truck most of the time too.

PS the local Artificial reef society is planning on sinking the HMCS Annapolis (400ft Canadian destroyer escort) as an artificial reef this year. ... -1.2889802

Nice front end! may I ask how much did that run you? Did you do up a cad file for water jet cutting and then have them bend the corners? I have a front end in need of some repair and I was debating doing just what you did without the vw logo. And how are those LED headlights?
