hey, what's up Brad! Yeah it's something I have been wanting to do since I saw a couple XB's done like that. The cool thing is that they were both black. There was one in the SEMA pics from Tim and then there is this one. I LOVE this one---> http://www.justinhampton.com/news.scioncar.html . I got a grip of crazy ass ideas. This is just the begining. Hopefully I can find some info. I am going to talk to the family but I was getting restless and needed to post something up.

Ok, I know it's not a panel van, but it is a woody...

Thanks for everyone's response so far. I don't mean to be rude and I think the woody style is really cool, but that is totally not what I am going for. Look at the picture above of Justin Hampton's "Creature Screecher" and that is what I am going for, except for the grafix on the side. What I need help with is the how to's on sealing the doors and paneling the windows. Thanks again.

you would have to cut out the section around the door and weld a pannel to fill the door cracks and make it smoothe and some bondo to fill any flat spots to make it all smoothe....then around the windows do a similar method....thats what i would do..

Take it to a bodyshop, It's nothing you wanna tackle yourself. The simple fact that you are asking us tells me you are not capable of doing it yourself.

And a regular collision shop won't normally do it, you'll need to find a shop willing to do custom work. I am a bodyman, there is no cheap way to get this done right.
