Very nice surgery so far. l love the shorty vans. There were SO many of these around in the '70s. To bad most are gone now. l'll keep in touch with this build, should be groovy! What year grille are you gonna use?
Probably the '71-'73 style, but I might go with the painted steel version.

I actually shortened a 'Canon Ball Run' van many years ago to build as a replica of a '78 my dad had. The Canon Ball Run kit had the squarer '79 nose so I did some surgery and made it look more like the '78.

Now I need to add the strut rod mount brackets, improve the splits at the front ends of the frame rails, fit the steering gear box, and so on...another long term project.
