I just purchased an 01 awd white cargo. I think im going to go your route in the back before i build shelves. Debating on carpet or bedliner though as ill still work out of it. I manage new houses being built so i come across all kinds of material. I really like the 1/4 round molding you made from pvc.

I use my '97 for work only now but when I got it in '01 I did the walls and rear ceiling w/ FRP laminated over 1/4" ply. 15 years later it still cleans up nice.

After a life changing move and some major surgery to fuse my cervical spine I've gotten back to work on the van. Decided I needed to cut down on
the clutter. Made some upper cabinets. Check it out.

It's hell gettin' old, but it beats the alternative. Last year was full of excitement. Moving from a house in the city I lived in for thirty years
to a condo in the burbs. Used the Astro and pretty much did it myself. In August I took a little trip to see some National Parks.
http://s285.photobucket.com/user/PanCla ... t=9&page=1

Upon my return I was having problems. Arm numbness, drop foot, and much pain. After many CT scans, MRI and a series of Doctors I ended
up at a Neurosurgeon who cut me and inserted some hardware in my neck.
Cervical spondylosis with myelopthy, s/p C3-7
laminectomy, C3-T2 fusion.
Had the surgery in October. Still in therapy, right arm & leg affected by the C-5 nerve not healing yet. Trying to get back out on the road to continue
the NP tour.

Truth.
Green side of the lawn is much nicer on the eyes.

So how do you like the condo? Is it easier for you?

I've done a few more trips and found the need for auxiliary lighting. It gets dark in the desert.
Also added some USB charging ports and a mount for SiriusXM radio.
