Got to say this about the kit it is not as good as I remember  but that was long ago.Did not know much about cars and stuff back then,the auto transmission  is a C6 don't look like any C6 I have worked on so doing alot of rework to make it more like a real C6 I starting to think sometimes I'm to fussy but thats me.So anyways correcting the powertrain making coil springs for the frontend then I plan to get into the interior going to make it like the originals The way van goodies did them.pictures will come later

Bob,  That's a nice view you have in the back yard!!!

 

Back to the van... the hinges look great and look in scale too.  Nice job.  

 

Are you going to open up the front doors too?

 

Mike.

Yes I have been working on this van also just trying to get the door to slide as a real van what a pain because of the flares has to push out at the back and does not go back as far as it should but that was a problem even on the real vans. Where door slides in the middle of body opened it up the the top of channel and going to use a bent pin as the extender in a U shape as the middle slider as on the full sized van pictures later in the day time to sleep nah back to the shop wife sleeping any ways

I have the kit, and I believe the wheel/tire combo picked out, just a matter of determining the color and whatever other items I want to add to it.
