So yeah--- How do I start with this one? Well--- I needed a truck to haul my guitar rigs and stuff--- Then I got this crazy idea--- And I've always want... Show moreed a Van like Mr. T's--- So I started thinking about what kind of Van to look for-- Then the whole kustom van thing hit me and---
Well--- Careful Measuring--- Lots of Time--- Money---- Imagination---

- 10 External Lights
- Roof Hatch
- Gun Ports
- Computer AI

Still got a long way to go... There was some rust under that old rubber floor liner. Not any more!
Next I began working on the roof setup. First ... Show morecame the K.C.'s --- they are EXTREMELY bright --- Then I got the idea for some Air Horns...
But I sorta got caried away and said 2 ain't enough! How about 4! Ya see, I wanted this Van to be as loud as a train. Than I topped it off with some RED running lights. And found some really sweet Headlight & Taillight Covers.
This project is really coming along... But now lets flare it up some more... I got the really bright idea to paint a sign on the sides, that is only viewable in direct light, that says, "CONTRACT CLEANING"----
And if that wasn't enought, how about some GUN PORTS...
Next we'll top it off with a Genuine VAN SPOILER... and some Authentic VAN WINDOW LOUVERS!
The Gun Ports were fun, but I needed a full 360 degree range for my 50 Cal. So I got out the jigsaw and made a fully weather sealed ROOF HATCH...
No I am NOT kidding.
And just think... All this time what did I do with the INTERIOR??? hmmmm....
Not sure if you're ready for it...
Maybe I'll show you later......
But for now here's some more recent pics:
That's all for now! Thanks for checkin out my Van!

This Van started its life as a service vehicle for a Railroad Company. They put about 63,000 miles on it--- then I snatched it up. Not bad for an 1988 huh?... Show more!
Here is what it looked like the day after I bought it:
Here's the man who helped out with all the early stages of this machine. Thanks Josh!
Pretty Dirty, but underneath all that dust was a very straight bodied Van. Always Serviced, Maintained, and it runs very well.
Yup, didn't waste any time at all... The first thing I did was cut the exhaust off!
Then we painted it... Got some new rims and tires (295/50/15 in the back) Hooked up some 3" Chrome Side Pipes... and topped it off with the KNIGHT RIDER LIGHT!
