Here is a van i've been working on since sunday night. The business is my dads and hopefully one day i'll have my own. This van isn't perfect by no means but its a good start to a everyday workvan. He actually drives a 98 dodge van but i thought this would be cool also. I have some scale 3 and 6in. pipe cut into 10ft. lengths to go on top when i get it finished up.

Yea the rust may be a bit to much but i figure for i believe a 75 van? It would about right. I've actually seen the rockers gone to where you can see inside the van lol.

Can wait to see this finished!! We have plenty of Ford Transits and Mercedes Sprinter vans driving around the roads of the UK which look remarkably similar to this......!!

Sorry, that should say CAN'T wait....!!!

You better hurry up and finish that thing before it disintegrates! Seriously, that's some nice looking rust.....that would sound so weird anywhere else.

(Oh, by the way, you missed a couple of fingers with the blue paint.)
