Holden Gemini Panelvan Build #1 (Oct 2010)
It begins! (Yet again...)
Since my old L300 retired several months ago, I was somewhat forced to take

places it will be a worthy replacement to my dad's old van... I hope...

Due to comp issues this video was uploaded late.
In this episode we have a little help from the buyer himself, and lay down
some paint on a few panels. The interior gets some new carpet, and I fail
to demonstrate the low compression in an Isuzu G161Z.
It looks like the won't be done by day 14, but I will continue taking
videos even after the deadline has been passed.
