New member intro

I've been visiting this site for a few months now and have found a world of useful information. My wife and I picked up our new 2017 van last Thursday after waiting close to 6 months for it to be delivered. We ordered it with dual sliding doors and rear heat and air which meant we didn't get the rear floor mat or the sliding doors and rear door step trim pieces. Fortunately the dealer had floor mats they had taken out of other vans but didn't have the step trim pieces. If anyone knows where I could get these pieces (other than from the dealer) I'd appreciate it.

Same situation for me. Dealer gave me the mat and wheel well covers. I bought the side and rear door pieces from the dealer. One was $219 and the other $113. The fasteners were expensive - one type was $6. each. Holes need to be drilled for the top fasteners. Hard to align. Felt the effort and expense was worthwhile as I don't like the looks of the metal alternatives.

Congrats! MNFORDPARTS.com has the side scuff plate in the $180's + shipping. I am in their area and am trying to get them to honor their online price locally so I can pick it up but their walk in/call in price is in the mid $200's. Please keep me in the loop if you can on your progress with this.

BTW….how many goats are gonna fit in it?

We only have two goats but they will fit quite easily. My dealer had similar prices for the pieces. Need to check about the wheel well covers. I want to do some sound insulation. Been seeing plenty of good ideas on this site.

Ha ha. I actually finally watched a DVD I "time shifted" titled "Goats" with David Duchovny & Vera Farmiga, a coming of age with goats enjoyed it. Yeah I have various projects waiting on other items too. You really need to get the chronology right to avoid doing things twice.
