Just cut the windows out of the wrecked van, and weld them into the donor van.

I had that thought for about a minute. That is big curved side that I will surley screw up. I really think (this gets me into trouble) this wont be that hard if I measure and remeasure, and go slowly and thoughtfully with the cutting and welding. All of the damage will be hidden behind a roll pan and the closed doors. I plan on using truck bed llining for the floor when I get done with the repairs.

Well I was all ready to cut apart a good van to fix a window van. However tonight I drove the van again and I discovered some problems with the engine that makes me not trust it for my daily 200 mile drive. So I figure if I'm going to pull the motor out or do any major repairs I might as well stick my smallblock in the Cargo van. So back to plan A, I will strip what I want off of the wrecked van and use it on the Cargo van. I wil use the seat mounts rear end and the headliner plus some other stuff I cant think of right now.



Thanks for the help and suggestions.

Lon
