Then I will help you a bit. You speak fine though.
They are remote fuel burning heaters similar to the rear heater option except they burn gas or diesel and can also be plumbed into the engine cooling system as a engine heater.

Love the flames!
What wheels are those?

Your English is a whole lot better than my Italian so I think you're doing just fine. ;)

I'm digging your woodwork, very detailed, nice color stain. It looks like you're going to be adding more in the cabin area?
I look forward to seeing more if and when you get a chance. :ty:

You have a conversion van. The 2 windows on the driver side and the rear window on the passenger side are aftermarket windows. You will need to look close at the window to see if there is any identification of the maker of them.

The passenger side slider pop out window uses the following seal.
WEATHERSTRIP. Body Side Window. Side Door Window Glass.
