    At the junkyard, I found the coolest dealer emblem I have ever seen and that is going on my van.

    It's getting there. Installed the new dash, found a nice hood and restored the cladding. Plus I got new tires and have 4 matching wheels and tires now.

    That's one heck of an improvement. Did you paint the new hood or did you manage to find one the same color?

    Thanks guys!

    I found one, it wasn't easy to get to and it has some dents but I got it. It was on a car that was already crushed but other than the minor dents, it's perfect.

    Didn't realize it's been a year since I updated this. Little Aztek has come a long way. Windows tinted, tent added, finding all kinds of the little knick-knacks you could get for a 'tek.

    Still looking for:


    • tent with awning
    • factory seat covers (I really want these)
    • trailer wiring harness
    • air hose (though I took the one from the van since the air compressor in it quit a few years ago)
    • backpacks
    • Mattress
    • Rubber floor mats -gray
    • Factory gray Aztek front floor mat - passenger side
    • Cupholder ashtray
    • R/C Azteks
    • Inside bike rack(s)
    • Roof rack (locking bar type)
    • Roof bike rack(s)
    • Trailer hitch
    • Wind/rain deflectors for all 4 windows
    • Bug deflector
    • Cargo floor liner

    It will be a fully-optioned ride once you're finished with it. That tent is cool!
