Van Life – Rehabbing a rusty 22 year old Dodge Ram 1500 Van, Part 4 of Many 

Lots of work on the van in this update, we took off the hood and rear doors, the hood required the most work besides the roof due to the level of rust and neglect.

Lots of sanding was done and paint stripping, we took the drivers side, the hood and the rear doors down to their original primer sealer or bare metal in some spots where necessary.

So far we haven’t spent much money on this project, just a lot of time and effort. We hit the bad paint with 80 grit on the DA sander and then we used a bulk material removal wheel around ~60 grit to pull off the old decals and bad rusty spots on with the grinder.
