the new, awesome van

August 19th, 2010 by Kawika Heftel

A picture’s worth a thousand words, right?  Check it out:

This lovely behemoth is my new ride!  It’s got a half-ton truck engine in it and when you put the pedal to the metal, the old girl’s got guts!  She’s got plenty of cargo space as well, you can fit a 12-foot roll of carpet inside!  I’m enjoying learning how to drive such a big vehicle, and the feeling of power it gives me to hear her low rumble.

I could use some help, though.  I am trying to figure out what to do with it, decoration-wise.  I got it for a good price from a company going out of business, and as you can see, it still carries the branding of the now-defunct company.  I want to redecorate it.  The branding is not paint, but an incredibly intricate (and expensive) wrap job.  Underneath she’s a pristine, off-white creamish color (assuming the paint job’s still good).  So, use the comments to weigh in – what should I do to redecorate it?  Give it a hippie paint job?  Rewrap it?  Repaint it?  The sky’s the limit (well, and my very modest budget)!

  1. Dude, you should save up and rewrap it to advertise your studio. I could just see it having a sick Heftel Studios wrap.

  2. Nah, that’s too much work… you should just offer floor coverings as a side business of Heftel Studios:p

  3. @David, I know! I would SOO love to brand it with my own wrap! Problem is, it’s about $3k…
