It seems this will take a few posts as I learn the blog system.                                                                   Pulling the van home the first thing was to double check the fuel system and change the fuel pump .I had never changed an electric fuel pump prior to this , bought a used repair manual and did it . Once running I inspected the complete vehicle to see if it would be the one ,and it was . A very thorough cleaning was next in and out afterwards it started looking like a cream puff. The last mechanical check was the transmission a certified tech and coffee mate of mine did it for me including setting the bands and total service . I now had the vehicle and planned the build . The interior was to remain a 5 passenger vehicle but a camping system was to be able to be carried all or some times the system was similar to a European system called a Boot Jump  . Measurements were taken and the building is from construction grade lumber using a very simple system of picture frames covered with ply wood . I will now post more pictures and explain in the next post as I haven't been able to post after pictures on this blog .
