Fans going in this weekend. we are hoping to have all the van thru-hulls done by the end of September. We are still kicking around whether or not to paint the fans to match the black rack of leave them white to blend into the van?

I may be jumping ahead but I have to do something while I wait for the rest of my electrical and tanks to arrive.
I figured a 12" sub will make movie night with the kids awesome, maybe even a little excited for some old school rap nostalgia.

We started building the rack! I even got some help from the kiddos, one was happy to run the torch, and the other was happy to be away from little brother while he is wielding the torch.

More progress on the rack. I know I don't want to try to make a living on these racks, as they have been extremely labor intensive.
