Nothing and no one is perfect. Used vehicles are no exception. The van came with “privacy glass” which is really nothing more than an off-brand sticky-backed tinted plastic sloppily adhered to the inside of the windows. Whoever installed the tinting cut funny little irregular holes to accommodate the window latches. I’ve honestly never seen such crappy work before. It was previously a government vehicle so I suppose I shouldn’t have expected anything more.
What do I plan to do about the odd tinting? Nothing. It works fine, I just like to complain. Being a perfectionist isn’t easy.
A bigger concern is the side window that isn’t sealing properly. There’s a 3 mm gap along the bottom edge of the window that lets air and debris in. I have no idea how to fix it, and I know I can’t ignore it. I’ll probably address that issue some time next week.
An even bigger concern is the odd bubbling paint on the roof. It appears that someone painted over a spot of rust, which has now grown to an area about 5 inches square. This is also something that I have no idea how to fix. I am pretty sure, however, that it will have to be dealt with before I have the high top put on, due to the placement of the bubbling.
Quickbooks and taxes will likely take up most of my time through next week. I purchased the van just in time to do absolutely nothing with it. Oh well, it’s pretty to look at.
