The reason this is a blog, and not a single post, is that this van is a project. Without getting too schmaltzy, it’s a learning experience and a great way to chase the special sense of accomplishment that comes with fixing something that’s broken.
The van came to me in generally good running shape, but has/had a number of issues, some bigger than others. Because I started this blog a couple of weeks into the ownership experience, I have already taken care of some of the listed issues, but in the interests of a thorough archive, I’ll post them anyways.
Watch this space.
