New running boards.. beware of falsely advertised item. This is NOT a no drill item and it is NOT custom for 2019. But the manufacturer has been contacted, they are aware and reportedly making new brackets for the new body style. Thanks too my brother for some creative engineering to make it work.

Replaced the spare tire carrier that was mounted to the trailer hitch (continental kit style) with a rear door mounted one. I did this to increase the departure angle of the van. Before I was scraping the ^%$# out of the old carrier bottom bracket everytime I went anywhere where there was a steep angle to enter/exit. This was espcially troublesome due to my very steep driveway. In addition, I no longer feel like I'm going to get a hernia everytime I lower and raise the spare tire to access the rear compartment and I don't need to worry about putting the cotter pin in the bracket to prevent the tire from falling down. The holes that hold the pin in were never aligned and it took a mallet to get it to place. Now all I need to do is open and close the door. I would send a picture but I don't know how to do it (I'm old and in the way). The best thing about this mount is that no holes were drilled. Instillation took less than an hour. It would probably take someone with more mechanical skills than i possess 1/2 an hour. Check it out at owlvans.com

Today I did a rough install of some cargo drawers that I made. The box is 4x4x19 tall. I made the thumb buttons for the latches, only ones connected right now, I lost the ferrule for the other side so thatll get finished up tomorrow. Im planning on building out to the wall and hinging the deck floor panels

Today I fitted tounge and groove to the roof in my conversion, it's 9 months since my "friend" said he would be back in 2 weeks to help me build this camper conversion.
Been a while since I posted. I've just started getting on with it.

Today I squared and bolted down (3/8” carriage bolts) my cargo drawer box and attached hinged side pieces over the wheel wells. Before bolting it down, I removed the third bench brackets with the intent of making the second row take a three seater bench and the hope of finding another three seater for cheap locally. The wide third row bench was missing when I bought my van.

First time I have looked up close at the new van. Although it looks the same from a distance it has suttle refinements in nearly every body panel that gives it a more refined look. I like it. So glad they didn't stylize it.
