Ok guy, here's my newest designed wrap on my van. I'll be honest, the more I look at it the more I like it. :)

Looks great John and you will never have to deal with gm paint issues! More than once I thought about wrapping our chevys in all white wrap and no more paint chipping off.

I have a Chevy and a Ford Van. The Chevy paint is worthless. The Ford which is 13 years older is still all on the van. Not the same for the Chevy.

Between the paint problems and fuel pump problems with Chevy, I use Ford vans (4 over the years), although I do have an Astro and love it (did have to replace the fuel pump once though $$$).

The 4L80E transmissions are good for 150k and then you are on borrowed time. We can rebuild one for under $750 with a shift kit inhouse. The 08 chevy I bought with 42k on the chassis, I'm going to buy a used transmission (new torque converter) and rebuild it and put it on the shelf way before it detonates. We can swap one on ramps in the driveway in about 4 hours after work. Other than the paint and transmissions you can weld the hood shut for 100k. Our rigs don't miss many work days, because lost sales is like lost sleep, you never get it back.

Great info, never thought about keeping one on the shelf for the inevitable. Where do you get your core? Junkyard?

Yes, here we have boneyards called pull-a-part with online inventory. Make, model, miles, etc... to make the parts choice easy. I upgrade things from there, pop out windows, handles, vinyl seat internal parts, bumpers. New bottom seat covers I buy new on Amazon, 45 minutes to replace start to finish.

Certain things like purge solenoids or vapor canisters are always new OEM. Other pedestrian parts are used first choice on a work van. It's amazing for how little you can renew a rig at the right place.

I wish I was as mechanically inclined and knowledgeable as you Jim.
