    Or I could add some 28” wheels, raise it 8”, and make it a donk! Lol! Nah; budget on this one calls for a basic stocker.

    Or a Conestoga wagon if that's your desire.

    Not sure that the Mystery Machine logo is a good fit for a window van? The vans with all of the windows are more "people mover's", as JB calls them down south, used for touring around so everyone can see, or for picking up groups of folks, like a Church van? Maybe a nice logo, like a Lighthouse, with rays of light reaching out, and something like "Falcon's Home For Wayward Girls" in a nice script style font?

    It would be easy to cover the windows with a perforated vinyl decal. You can still see out of the window but your design/logo can be printed on a piece of vinyl to suit your needs. Then you'd have a little more security and a cool look.

    That's a very good point Ryan! They've done exactly that on the public transportation buses around here, with fancy graphics for the Royals, Chief's or special groups. The people inside have pretty much unrestricted view through the pinholes, and the added bonus is that the interior runs much, much cooler with most of the radiant energy of the sunshine reflected.

    I would just smile and nod while continuing the assembly.

    An old story for you Seth. Many moons ago in the sprint car days, we had two different motors as we ran at a couple different tracks with different cubic inch limits.... Late, late, late one Thursday night (Friday morning) getting ready for a 3 day race weekend I had checked bearings in both engines and had both back together and on the stands....one of my "friends" laid an extra rod cap on my bench, then of course pointed it out to everyone still there! He let the deal continue until I was just getting ready to pull the first pan and see which engine I had screwed up!!! Aren't friends great?????
