    My Econoline brakes work just as good as my car brakes when applying light force. The slow response time on the Econoline vs the car is only when I apply the brakes as hard as possible.

    Have you applied this to your van? I can feel the heat entering the cabin from the engine around the dog house. Don't know how to prevent that.

    The DuraFlor contact info says they are in India. I don't see a local sales/support office. That's going to be important for my guy who's never installed this stuff before.

    I like the black marble. That's an awesome look. If it lasts longer and looks like new after 7 years that's even better. Is this stuff good only for flat surfaces or does it apply well to curved and...

    So it's normal? That's good and bad. Good that I don't have another problem to repair. But bad that longer stopping distance is to be expected.

    Econoline brakes

    If I slam on the brakes on my cars going 45 MPH, my car stops in about a second. My 1992 Ford Econoline may take 3-4 seconds to stop. That extra time is several car lengths. I don't know how accurate...

    Sliding door are better than swing doors? How so? Isn't the lift in the way of reaching the door from inside? Even if you can reach it, it's really hard to push/pull without some leg muscle.
