Just purchased e350 handicap van

Hey all!

Tjis is my first post here on this forum, and I wanted to share my most recent aquisition with you guys. I recently just purchased a 2003 Ford e350 Diesel with 180k and handicap van high top. Bought municipally and drove off with it for 2k.

I was hoping to rack you guys' brains for ideas and past experiences.

One question I had was if the upper plastic on the high top on the inside could be removed to give more space/insulate it

Thank you guys, im excited to be a part of this community

Congrats on the find! Remember to keep drinking the Kool-Aid. It helps us stay focused--ha, ha. Rack up a few more posts and then post a bunch of pics of your bus. Most of us can't read so the pics are mandatory if you want info and guidance.

Here's the front of my Eldorado Aerotech with the front "clip" taken down. I pulled it off to get at the wiring in the right corner then reinstalled it later.

Welcome!

Is that the 6-liter motor that started in production during the 2003 1/2 model year?
