What do we have... 3-ish weeks 'till the Van-In? This is what I'm looking at as of right now. No biggie, plenty of time to put in a new full interior, run all new wiring for lights and stereo, prep and mount new cargo doors and try to match the crappy paint-job, weatherstripping all around, new wheels and tires, install sunroof and bubble windows, install fender flares - and try to match the crappy paint-job (again), re-mount the sidepipes (to accommodate the fender flares), new shocks all the way around and new coils up front, then of course it will need to be aligned, sink/icebox cabinet, build a bed of some sort... I could go on for a minute.
All this and for all intents and purposes, being a single parent to a 3yr old girl(my wife and I alternate work shifts so we can avoid day care costs) and juggling a dicked-out work schedule, my days off are in the middle of the week, yea, I'm here right now blogging because w'ere dead today, no customers = no money that helps to compound matters...
But whatever, can't wait for the road-trip, it's going to be rad to meet up with evcerybody. Just getting there is going to be a blast.
...Oh, and yes, that's a giant-ass hole in the floor behind the pass-rear wheel-well, I was going to patch it, maybe I'll just leave them in case I need to ditch anything along the way... :)
