Hello from Maine

Hi all, new member. 67 year old retired mechanic/ machinist. Just bought a 2007 Ford E350SD DRW. 12 pass shuttle van. Which has a wheelchair lift LR. Wife has MS and uses a chair to get around. Plans are to build out a camper van, mostly for Daytrips . Focusing on having a bathroom she can access (cassette toilet) simple Dinette, comfortable captains type travel seat for her, small fridge etc.! Small fresh water system/ grey water holding tank. Mostly 12V with an inverter for the fridge and a coffee maker.. it will probably morph into a full blown RV as I work through the build. Time, space and money permitting! Should be fun Bob

It has the V10 . 122K on the clock. I’m praying someone along the line replaced the spark plugs. But most likely not. Pretty busy engine bay��
