'99 Safari Road Tripper

Postby Hoc [OP] » April 20th 2017, 9:20pm

Hi all! Just wanted to make a topic showing what I've done, or will do, with my van (Trips, repairs, mods, etc).
17884301_1899728263386520_7041892633021878777_n.jpg

Bought this thing from my Uncle back in Jan. and I've been in love with it ever since! I plan on using it mostly as a weekend camper and for long distance trips. Also, sorry ahead of time if this topic isn't acceptable, please swiftly delete it.
Anyways, here's what I've done to it since I've bought it:
Drove it 1,200 miles to KCK and back
Replaced all the spark stuff
New right caliper + brakes
New tires + Full size spare (No more Walmart specials!)
Replaced both tail lights
New Transmission lines
"New" Heater control unit
Gotten started on the camper portion of it (below)

Things I still need to do:
Find a replacement molding for the drivers side (Drunk driver hit it while I was at work)
Figure out how to hang my makeshift curtains (Suggestions welcome!)
Swap the AC Compressor with a by-pass pulley
Weld the sway bar back together.

That's all I've got for right now, and once again, sorry if this isn't allowed in this forum, I'm still relatively new to here (and forums in general).

You are clearly in violation of the intergalactic policy enacted by Xur and the Ko-dan Armada. Pledge your allegiance to Xur immediately or you will be fired upon and your post removed. :nono:

Hang on to the old spark stuff. When the new Chinese **** craps out in a week you're gonna want to re-install it.

Welcome and yeah, you might be doin it right.

Think that reference is just a tad bit before my time. I have the benefit of working at a body shop so I get anything OEM cheap, I know not to trust the cheap aftermarket stuff. And thanks for the welcome! Side note, super envious of your van, that thing is so awesome, if I didn't have a parts guy salary that would be my end goal.
