I know it's been a long time coming, but Barbara has finally gotten her van back. After replacing the transmission, radiator, front transmission mount, AC compressor, front brakes, front struts, wheel cylinders, reconditioning the headlights, repairing the rear window wing motors, fixing the suspension noise, freeing up the lock cylinder, an oil change, and replacing the battery, this van should be good to go. At least I hope so.

Barbara was very happy with her van. Yes, the brakes were a bit squishy, but I addressed that issue in another video where I bled the brakes. I did not give the van back to her with unsafe brakes.

This concludes the first of the Fixing it Forward series. I'm already on the lookout for the next recipient of the project. Look for those episodes to be coming out soon.

I want to once again thank all the sponsors that helped with Barbara's van.
