Well, I'll post a little update.
I've been searching for a replacement engine but seem to keep missing out on the deals. No worries, I can wait. It can sit here in the garage like this for a bit.
That doesn't mean progress on the van has stopped. I managed to get the second seat swivel in. What a difference this makes to the interior space!!!
Van is a bit dirty inside as I have been working on it. Also getting ready to replace the carpet with something different so stay tuned.
