Combining the 2 in one thread as the Chrysler is probably not worthy of a thread of its own
Bought the GMC in November from a guy who had started painting it, went on tour and then decided he was leaving the army. He sold it to me as scrap as the test was short on it and the paint he had done was atrocious. It was half done and it had reacted all over the place. He had also left the masking tape on all the lights, ladder, badges etc which was an absolute pain in the arse to remove after about a year. The van is a 4.3 V6 first registered 01.01.1993.
Here's how it looked when I got it; a mess but a lot of van for 240 euro (about £200)
It now has a years test on it though it didn't come easy. Failed on an indicator out and rear brake not up to scratch. Not too bad I thought. The indicator turned out to be a break in the cable rather than just a bulb and the brake wasn't working as transmision fluid was leaking down the half shaft and into the drum. so, half sharf out, new seals, back in and new brake shoes. I did what I could with the paintwork but I didn't have a massive amount of time or paint. The front wasn't too bad but the bits he had done black took ages and still aren't great. Comparatively though, I'm quite happy with it as it still looks good from a meter or so away and is no longer an eyesore to my neighbours.
