Very cool van, man! I love the van life as well
Van people seem to be the coolest around, I recently met a really cool (and hot) van dweller chick with a high roof dodge and a huge great Pyrenees puppy :-)
I personally have a 1977 g10 and a purebred German shepherd and am loving not paying rent and all that nonsense
Cheers man!

43 days and this is Plan B ready to go. Mostly done for free with stuff i had and stuff my brother gave me . Under $2,000 bucks in this build including purchase price of the van,new alternator and battery.




The shelf is not at an angle. Was just the camera angle.

Looking GREAT Steve!  I love sliding doors as opposed to opening ones, sure helps with interior space.

Looks a cracking van especially for the money , I've always wanted an American day van but with the uk fuel prices it just wasn't practical, love your conversion, good luck with your travels , shawbags
Live life to the full

Re: PLAN B : THE VAN BUILD - UPDATE

Well the inside is closer to being done. Had her out boondocking a few times. Buddy The Adventure Dog approves.


Found me a new set of wheels too. No more black steel rims for this baby. Now sitting pretty on 15x10's
They are offset different and let the tires rub  now and then. Fixing that now.


Just finished up the rear lift install. Has this temporary new stance lol. Should get the front done in a day or two. Weather and back permitting.

Yanked the running boards off yesterday. Like it much better without them. Ran dual exhaust today.

Greetings Steve!

That metallica video gave me a headache!  That flashing, swirling stuff is TERRIBLE!  The still shots were flashed up and gone way to quickly.  The shot going into the van through the side door was too quick too, need to slow down so we can enjoy the interior view and soak it in...

Most of the actual video I really enjoyed though!

I don't mean to be overly critical, or discourage you, just trying to offer some constructive criticism to help you make your video's even better.

Cheers!

Dan
