My 2000 Dodge B Van build - August 07th 2011 2:17 pm

I finally figured out how to post an image so I thought this would be as good a place as any to post a collage of my build. I owned this 2000 Dodge van from it's birth NEW. I put 217000 miles on beasty and used her every day for my shows traveling ac cross the country. My wife and I had to make a decision to either buy new or let me resurrect her into a Hot Rod van....it's almost done just some interior, sunroof and of course I have to paint the murals (being that's what I did most of my early career)lastly some minor interior mods since I still plan on loading her up and towing a trailer to all my conventions and show it will be an every day driver van. Enjoy and thanks for all the support I have received so far. This is a great site and I am proud to be welcomed in.

Thanks Ken, although I create all my paintings for publishing OLD SCHOOL hand painted on canvas....I must admit photoshop can come in handy with advertising and product work....As a matter of fact I am releasing within the next month a line of Fantasy Art aluminium License plate novelty tags with my art on them. Since most of my original paintings are portrait and not landscape I had use photoshop to fit the art across the tags so it comes in handy to do layout for ads and products..

I would like to get some feedback from my fellow Vanners on wether these Noveltie Tags would be cool for them?

stupid But I'm thinking most would have to display them inside the van. State law requires that we ware plates on the front and back of the van.
