New member, new driver, not new to Astros

Postby wrecker388 [OP] » September 24th 2014, 12:11am

Hi guys! I'm new here at AstroSafari, but I've been around Astro vans since I was born. I was literally brought home from the hospital as a newborn in the one that is going to be my daily driver come November. Mine is a 1990 Astro CL Ext with the non-performance 4.3 and a 700R4 Automatic.It will Be getting pink house carpet installation along with a new headliner, sub woofer, and Pioneer DEH-P3800MP Radio. The passnger side seat cover will be used on both seats.It currently has 238,25X miles. It has custom PPG Deltron paint, and the wheels are a set of old ET Turbines. It will be getting new rocker panels and a quarter patch and some other rust repair shortly. My dad is a professional body man, and I'm his apprentice/ tool catcher. Some of you may know me from Model Cars Magazine Forums (I go by the same screen name over there). I plan to at some point replicate the Astro in scale. So without further delay, here are some pics of my Astro:

Also, does anyone have the dimensions for the headliner for an EXT model? Thanks.
