The first picture is of the ceiling in my Cargo Converstion. As you can see, the fabric has worn or been torn away and a bare plywood ceiling that was installed by the conversion company is underneath. I had a large flip down TV/DVD/USB player in here for the kids and for watching movies while camping out. Of course that has to be reinstalled too with the new headliner from the parts van. I ripped

My 1987 Cargo Conversion 4x4 was my first van. I found her out front at our local junkyard as a fresh arrival. I stopped to investigate and found the van to be in tired shape. But a fresh battery got the engine to run just barely good enough for me and I picked it up for $500.
Fast forward a couple of years and the guts of this van have been pretty well overhauled. The previous owner and I got in touch and became fast friends so I know the van's history and that the 145,000 miles
Here it is- all done up and ready to drive!
Thanks to Jetway Auto Body for fine work and to my awesome mechanic at Tokyo Auto (Vishal rebuilt the engine last year) in Vancouver. Without them, this van would be a lunch box!
The paint and top coat are done. Now to put all the bits back! Hopefully there's not a screw leftover...
These are images of my van waiting in the wings for paint and top coat. Jetway Auto Body is too busy, so it'll be another week before they get to it. Then it'll be 8 hrs of painting... next up, hope to leave the shop a happy client!
