#Vandemonium Build

So the wait is over!
My van was delivered this morning and my salesman called me as the van was coming out the truck.
Spend 3 hours doing an inspection, test drive, and making sure everything was on point.
Yes, maybe too long, but I am a master auto detailer and I can't help it! Had to check every inch of it.
The air filter issue it's been fixed.
Doing this on my iPhone and can't post pictures, I am missing something or you can only add pics on desktop?
Whenever I figure this picture situation out I'll post pictures.
But this is what I have to say, if you are in Texas, specially in DFW, you NEED to talk to Reuben Krause, best salesman ever!
And thank you to CrewVanMan for your help, you brother are awesome!

Congratulations on the new van!

So, HOW was the air filter issue fixed? At the filter box itself would be one thing, but, stopping water flow off the windshield would be another... which could then also affect the driver side, and protect electronics.

Thanks, and congratulations on the new Transit! Looking forward to photos about the Air Filter Nightmare solution, and any insights gained from talking with your salesman and dealer.

If you feel like it maybe you could add the basic details of your van into your Signature (via the User CP at the top right).

So here are some pictures from the day I went to inspect my van.






Can anybody please check their cowl panel and see if your van is missing this rubber bushings, there's one outside and one right under the plastic panel, the right side windshield wiper has both and the one on the left side has none, I checked two other transits next to mine and both were the same way. Going to pick up the van tomorrow and need to point it out to the salesman if it needs to be taken care of. Thanks.
Well, I guess ill ask the question and look stupid instead of not asking it and be stupid, but how do I add pictures? I hit insert image, and I have to insert a url? Cant I just copy & paste?
Any help greatly appreciated so I can load this pics!

Happy Transiting Everyone!

To attach photos go up to Tools at the top, then

FAQ > Reading and Posting Messages > Attachments and Images

Keep in mind that you have to use the full Reply function, not Quick Reply, when you want to attach photos from your computer.

Once you do it one or two times, it gets easier.

Looking forward to your photos of the Air Filter Nightmare situation with water coming off the windshield, and supposed fix you referred to. Thanks.

Anybody else is missing this rubber bushings, the one on the cowl panel, and the one further down. It doesn't look right to me, but I checked a couple other transits on the lot and they were the same.
The right hood vent will be replaced as it had two broken tabs.

Do you have any pics of the lower right and left side of the windshield? I think we all have the rubber along the bottom of the windshield and the gutter, but it is the corners that are the problem areas.
