  9. Upgrade rims and tires to 15″ HydroEdge

This summer the van is going in to a company called GoWesty to get a rebuilt engine, new cooling system front to back and new exhaust components.

Lots of stuff, but all designed to make our lives in the van more pleasant.

Pictures will follow in future posts.
