I don't know either of these people, but this is a beautiful conversion! Plus I don't think I've ever seen this much thought put into a minivan before. Does anyone here have anything similar? I'd love to do something like this.

It's a good build, but some things:

1. That wood is gonna bring in mold like crazy. Unless it's been treated, the condensation will rot that shit and it's gonna be fucked in no time. Also the weight. In a full size van with adequate suspension it would be fine but a minivan based off a car chassis is gonna be a struggle.

2. Those generation of Honda vans are well known for the catastrophic tranny failure. I actually passed on a van for a good price because I knew of the well documented failures of those transmissions.

Still, a good build. If you just wanted a weekend scrambler it would be fine but I wouldn't want to live in it full time.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
