Brand new van, let's cut holes in it!
Updated: Sep 29
I knew this day would come. I have emotions about it.
Today - we start the "real" conversion process of our brand new, shiny, perfect van. This involves cutting HOLES in it. We'll try to capture as much useful (and entertaining) footage as possible... so stay tuned.
By "we", I mean myself, Mike, and our amazing friend Lee. Here is a pic of Mike and Lee, totally sober, planning this event at our favorite local brewery, Hop and Sting in Grapevine.
As you have probably guessed, we do quite a bit of van conversion planning while having a tasty beer (or two).
Goals for today:
Cut the hole in the roof for the fan.
Paint the edges to prevent rusting, and install the gasket (need to let the adhesive cure for 24 hours).
Cover the hole with plastic since it will be open for a day while curing.
Drink a beer to celebrate.
If we finish this in a decent amount of time...we may start on the side windows. Should be a pretty, albeit chilly, day - so here we go!
Wish us luck. :)
