Default NC step van project (p20 1 ton)

ok, this was the closest forum section i could find to stick the ol' girl in, she is a '77 chevy grumman p20 kurbmaster (1 ton)
im currently bringing her back to life with mechanical upgrades, so far the list consists of
replacements-
starter, carrier bearing, alternator, fuel pump, master cylinder, battery, carburetor, ring&pinion(current project, going from a 5.13 up to a 4.10)

future projects-
replacing all glass, upgrading seat, updating dash and gauges, side pipe exhaust, polished mag style rims, power steering(she a bear in parking lots right now) full LED lighting.... and the list goes on and on .....and on.....

biggest project to date has been stripping the paint, 34 years and several layers of paint was a PITA, but its about 95% done, and then the polishing begins, yes, im going to polish the ol' girl out... just think airstream...

heres a few pics to get started with....
