Got this van for work because it's Express Access.. meaning the side panels open so you don't have to crawl inside all the time.

Drivers seat was a little rough so I found some on ebay.

These were taken out of a 2017. I assume it was a conversion because these are new. [Linked Image from farm8.staticflickr.com]

My Safari had automatic head lights, keyless entry and remote start. SO... I spent the week installing all that good stuff in the Express.
Also installed a backup camera. The express has the Perfect place in the headliner to mount the monitor.

The Accessory plugs didn't work. Guy I got the van from said they quit Years ago when he plugged in one of those little inverters for a laptop. Said the whole van filled with smoke.
GEE I WONDER WHY!!!!!!!

Took a little work to get to the wires.

So the dash is all tore apart and I'm thinking this radio doesn't have blue tooth either. Up graded that too. Added some brighter lights for the inside. I need to be able to read the specs on capacitors and contactors and stuff like that part numbers etc.
I got these lights on Amazon they are actually for under the bedrail on pickup trucks.

Definitely brighten up the back of the van. Notice the orange glow from the stock dome lights....

WOW! Jim you have been busy!! Looks like a nice van! They can take a lot of work to get them set up the way you need them.
