My friend Jim towed the van here on a car hauler I slipped in a mega deep cycle battery and it fired right up. Went to Ace and rented a steam cleaner and apholstry attachement and got to work on the stains on the carpet.

When it got here Mary hopped in her power chair and waited impaiently for me to put in the battery and drop the lift for her.

She instantly drove on the ramp that for two days she'd been stressing over having to be lifted on and looked at me like let's go!


Got my tags and all and am gonna work on the cabin today while I have a helper and the carpets scheduled to go in next Wednesday then changed out the tranny filter and fluids and oil and then weld a reciever to bolt to the vans floor to lock her power chair in place and the thing even has the six foot long seatbelt factory installed to buckle her up so I told her maybe Monday after I'm sure she won't budge a fraction of an inch of I hit the brakes hard and just take her for a leisurely ride...

This is one of the best gifts from out of the blue I've gotten in some time and I'm probably more excited about getting a Chevy Van with a 3/4 ton chassis than any of the zoomers I had as a 20 year old LOL.

I'm gonna spend the weekend changing the tranny fluid and oil, flush the rad change the gas filter and weld a new reciever in for her power chair.

She is exstatic because since iI had already modified her power chair before my surgery to let the seat go up and down one person can scoot her into it even Debbie who probable weighs a whole hundred pounds LOL.

This means she can go shopping...

I'm gonna make a second place to mount the chair controls right behing the top of the head rest so they can steer her from beind if she's tired or it will snap into the arm and they can follow with a cart while she steers herself.

Either way she is calling her friends and family bragging on it already LOL.
