Been down a week. The Tuner "clear throate" forgot a few things and had to send it back. Hopefully they can get it this time. May have to change to quieter mufflers. Sounds great just a little to much. Starting a 2nd build as well.

That awning frame looks great. Glad to hear you got the 4x4 working.

Another project.....

Thank you. Also wanting to do a astro trailer to tow behind Bart. But first I have a 2000 astro going to camperize, thinking a slide out kitchen, awning and some solar. If that goes well the the trailer will be a copy.

Update. All is good. So glad I lifted the engine and trans instead of a cut and hack oil pan! Im building a 2nd van and what a PITA is to work on with the engine in its stock location. The 270 ° Awning is coming just go tied up in the second van for awhile.
