Not a bad idea, I know there were a couple re-issued vans lately as well.. Would 'Sedan Delivery' work too?

Funny you should ask. I just got my kiss van to build. I'm in.

I put this paint question up elsewhere maybe some others can help here. Well I finally got my kiss van together "TO BUILD"!!! box stock. I did this kit as a kid and painted it red, if I remember right it was not that great of a color combo so I blew it up.

It seems most of these kits are sitting in the boxes on shelves and the ones to buy are around $100 bucks. I lucked out and got the van in its original form the Xtasy van kit for $20 delivered and ordered some after market decals from Australia for $15 delivered. and "tada" kiss van to build $35. The Xtasy van only came out one year to my knowledge then they slapped new Kiss decals on it and a cool box and the rest is KISShistory .

I would love to smack the guy that did that paint job for the box art. It is next to imposable to reproduce, I believe it is accomplished by painting the van a base color and after that dries you get a big pan of water and put oil based paint on top of the water then dip it thru the pattern to get that psychedelic paint, I have seen this done with eggs and papers for books. any way its way out of my league. I am thinking of going with a base coat of bright pink and then extra fine pink glitter to simulate metal fleck pink from the 70's. don't know if this will work or not will have to practice on old bodies.

I'd be interested in this if it were to begin, have one of the Econoline kits available for just such a build.

This sounds like a cool build. I'd be in for sure, though I just finished mine and possibly don't start another one right away. But I'll keep an eye for the progress. Here is mine, for inspiration.

Awesome van W-409,

As for b_lever1 question, I think the van's of the 70's had all the style, and that includes vans from earlier done in the 70's style.

Is there to be a dead line on this, maybe by the end of the year or something.

I would suggest to b_lever1 when you get the guide lines all together, to update your first post so newbies to the post get it right away.

I just watch "supper van" on you tube last month, cheese, but lots of great vans and stuff. I plane to start mine Mon. when the company leaves.

Just my two cents worth, about what it's worth.
