All this wheel option talk...  I came across this locally and I think they are 20" Ford Escape Titanium level wheels from about 2013.  I think they look good.  

Same era SEL trim had a similar but smaller version:

As for custom exteriors, my local, small town Ford Dealer has this.  

Which is a tribute to the 1975 Factory offering:

Just wanted to point out something on this eJudge van.

Those wheels aren't actually that size, these are large solid hub caps that mount over the stock wheels while eJudge is at a car show.

No.

That's an artist's visualization of the concept, not an actual vehicle.  (You can see the signature in the lower right corner)


The actual Transit ran the Rotiform VCE wheels depicted in the concept art, as shown on R Miller Autobody's website, which was involved with the build, as well as ejudged.com's own website.

Did he nuke yet another thread on this thing ?

Some folks sure struggle with the internets.

I figure the original poster will lose his E36 M3 over my impertinence.

Were there ever any pictures of the actual van that is (was) the subject of this thread?

If you don't want discussion, don't post in a discussion forum. Start a Wordpress blog and turn off the comments. I've learned a lot from people chiming in on my build threads, so I welcome interaction instead of resenting it.

Guys, this was a nice thread of a Ford van.  He had a lot of time into a lot of words and pictures. 

Now it looks like the OP has taken his ball and gone home. 

Let's do our best to be warmer to the newer members.  And, yes, I know this was a returning guest who has left for a second time.

Nice van with surely a worthy read. But I remember the first time he started a thread for it. Then I remember this time. It would appear that what he seeks is not a forum environment where others are free to enter into the conversation as things play out. 

I'm a huge fan of build threads. The more the merrier. Getting put off or offended when someone pipes up isn't the pathway to build thread success. I say this as a man who has had more than a fair share of build threads and has welcomed dialog from other members. That's how it's supposed to play out.

A fellow above mentioned not being so fragile. Well spoken sir. 

And that girl is worth a thread all of her own. She reminds me of my Fedex delivery driver. My wife says I order E36 M3 just so she will deliver it.

This community is the farthest thing from unwelcoming. 

I was enjoying the Ford TC van story the first time.. and the second time. I would be happy to see him come back again. It was an atypical build and on that basis alone: interesting. I guess we will never know.

If you'll accept actual discussion including things like "hey, here's a cool Transit I found that isn't just for hauling plywood", sure. That's an opportunity for you to say "that's one look, but I'm working towards something more gundam", not a criticism of whatever the hell you have planned. I'm looking forward to seeing a picture of the actual Transit in question, as I think they're a pretty cool platform.

If you'll throw all the toys out of the pram in a temper tantrum every time someone posts anything in your thread, not really.

If you want me to continue my thread then show some respect for what I've posted instead of trying to find fault in what I've psoted. So I'll submit a poll. If you want me to continue with my build, then vote below. 

I think most of us are interested in your van. It's different and cool. And I didn't see anyone being disrespectful. So I guess I'm a bit confused about your apparent defensiveness.

I'm interested, since I have no idea what we are even talking about here, so now I really want to see whatever it is.

I was interested before, and I'm still interested. Also very confused about why this continues to happen in this way. See the blog advice above.

Also need to mention all this, "I did this, but can't show you" stuff. If you are afraid someone is going to steal your ideas, a least say so, as with the dash pad cover, but then you can just show use your "custom text and logo" so we can make up our own ideas and images in our heads

I hope you take a minute to reflect and come back. Both of the threads you started on this were interesting and people were engaged. I didn't see anyone taking a dump on what you are doing.
I'd be happy that people were engaged even if the thread started to go it's own way. I've started threads like this that no one seemed to care, those are no fun because you are just shouting in a bucket. Enjoy that people think it's cool enough to go find similar things and jump in.

let me guess you never really read what I was posting nor did you read the comment Russian Warship, Go Berkeley Yourself  said about my fake plastic hubcaps used on the eJudge van.. in other words he was calling me out for something I knew as being fake hubcaps when I seen them with my own eyes. I do not like believe called out about my topics. People must think I'm pulling this sh!t out of my ass just for the hell of it. then I get scorn because of what I've said or how I do things. When I post I'm getting information form other sites or things I've discovered along my journey. There's absolutely zero point in me continuing the thread if everyone is going to doubt my topics and not believe a word I'm saying and even if I post pictures (which I've done) they will continue to find fault in what I'm doing.

I'll say it again, I have zero talent in repairing engines etc. But I am able to deconstruct them. The thread wa snot intended on offering this kind of advice or support. merely ideas along the way. There's one thing I can do is sew and I've done so with a redesign of the crappy covercraft dash cover. Now I'm just searching for a embroidery shop to fill in the rest of my project. Then i'm off to add diamond tucked carbon fiber material to the van's blank area and panels. So I guess the Connect isn't "cool" enough (as you put it) to be something anyone else here would be willing to join a TC community or even have the balls to put one of these on the track.

I'm not one for internet flame fights so I'll say this and see my way out. People were engaged. I didn't read the link you posted to something with what I deem to be a sketchy title. I didn't say anything about whether or not I thought your topic was cool. Take a breath and be in or not. I also don't do engine rebuilds. I have never raced, I don't have a sports car. I love cars, the people here are smart, talented and decent. It's a great forum. In no way am I not supporting your stuff. I like things that are different.

I was leaving this thread alone, as I didn't want to make this about you and me.   But since you are going to continue to play victim here...

I call 'em as I see 'em.    There is zero point in letting false info go unchallenged on a build thread in here.  That is not only a disservice to everyone in here who strives to give accurate information but also to anyone who stumbles across this thread via a Google search.

 I'm not going to go round and round with you on this point, but I really wish I had quoted your reply about talking to ejudged and then seeing these "hubcaps" in 2015 for yourself.

I truly don't think LIT is going to be a good fit here.

There is so much more I can say about this, but I will just let OP's own words speak for themselves.

Same U/N, circa 2015/16

Same U/N, different forum, circa 2022

Maybe 3rd time's the charm?

If you want to find them, the exact same posts that have been deleted here twice can be found in at least one other thread out there.  Just google the U/N.    You'll find it eventually, after seeing the deleted threads, scorched earth, and gnashing of teeth in the other forums.  It's all just copypasta from there to here.   OP seems to do fine with forums that don't have much activity so he can have an echo chamber.
