    Very cool Denny. Looks like a fun one to race around. And the wing is mounted that way also as pictured on the kit box .

    "That Wing" caused lots of head scratching when the Boyz were installing it!!

    As you can see from the instructions below and from the box artwork its in the right position.

    The first hint was that the mounting holes didn't line up until the wing was mounted as you see it.

    Appreciate your head scratching as well, the Boyz sure did!!

    Too cool, a manly work vehicle, with a cool paint job. Those white work things they use now are just goofy, they look like the giant shoe the old lady kept her kids in.
    I drove a full size Dodge window van with Cragar SS wheels and a pipe ladder rack on the roof to jobs at one point. It was fun driving it with that rack loaded with lumber and the inside packed with plywood and tools. I'm lucky those wheels didn't fail under all that weight now that I think back? Ignorance is bliss.
    That elegantly designed state-of-the-art backwards-o-wing is for driving at high speeds in reverse, who doesn't know that?

    Nice job.....the reversed wing should keep the rear end light, helpful with all those heavy tools......

    Too cool!

    I drove Chebby vans for years, but mine were full of tools and stuff.

    I really like the mural, I didn't even notice there was a van behind it at first.
    If she's one of them there "tree-huggers" I may become a environmentalist.

    The latest van has a Mercedes C Ninco chassis and power plant.

    The Boyz are trying to use whatever is on the back lot or parts bin for these builds.

    The kit was $3.00, but was missing any number of parts.

    Joe, this van will be strictly BIZ, but the Boyz have built some LOVE Vans in the past...…………..

    Just the right "mix" of beer, pillows, candles, flocked seats...……………...….
