Hello and good day to you:
May I ask a Few Questions First???

1. Are you, or someone you know going to try to do this Conversion?
2. If Not...Are you willing to spend a considerable amount of money to have this done??
3. Are you using this Van now....and if so...where did you get it in the first place...Can the Place you got the Van do the Conversion???

In all honesty you can make this conversion...there is no Conversion Kits to do this..But I would highly suggest you have the professionals do this for you.

Good luck and keep us advise of the situation.

One more thing...If you don't know what you are doing when you are attempting to take the Steering wheel off you may Short out, and disengage the Air Bag Sensor...CAUSING IT TO INFLATE....And this may be very DANGEROUS.

Good Luck and good repairing Sterling_6
