    Meguiars Mirror Glaze #40 Vinyl & Rubber Cleaner / Conditioner.

    Its kind of like a cross between quick detailer and armor all. Not too oily. Good for plastic and black stuff.

    Ended up putting a propane heater under the engine for 30 min and it started easy. And it started all day. Took it over so Jason could drive it. He’s psyched on where this thing ended up! He did make a good starting place. He kept commenting on how good of a job KCW did. He’s right.

    Thanks Jason.

    Its pretty much the same van with all new mechanical parts.

    I’m glad you found a way to get it to start in the cold….though, I think we can come up with a better way.

    For sure, gotta come up with a permanent option. I found the crack in this coolant pipe. Held it in a tub of water and blew air in it. Got it all sealed back up. Gonna put it back on now. Should be good to go68B6826A-851D-474E-87D6-A7924508753B

    Nice Job guys! It is awesome! Definitely deserves the Ultimate title. It drives so nice although I stalled it a few times, the shit point is different than i remember with the diesel but maybe not.

    Today is the day! The ultimate vanagon is on her maiden voyage. Taking the long and winding road to san diego first for Weston’s wedding! Wish us luck, but NO Bradburn luck. 4AA17621-1D09-4E28-B4CC-AFAD6E35DB0B

    AA080CF9-DBC1-4D18-BED0-7C72F470E556Got a ton of snow in SLC this morning! Glad I had the awning at my house so I could load the van. We made it to St. George tonight! Went through Delta and down toward Cedar City so we didn’t have to drive on I-15. We would’ve cruised the same speed either way. Going great so far! Finally heard the radiator fan on today so now I know it works, that’s good. Plan is to go toward Death Valley tomorrow and drive through Titus canyon. Super pretty. Then drive south to San Diego Friday morning for my brothers wedding. Loving this van! People look so confused when I pull up anywhere and then they get an even weirder look on their face when I start pumping diesel 😎

    My Grandpa used to say us Bradburn’s had bad luck when things would go wrong(which they often do). But he would also say, if we didn’t have bad luck we wouldn’t have any luck at all! Hahaha super funny. Excited to keep breaking this rig in. Just crossed 1000 miles since I left KCW last week👍🏼
