Hey all, anybody know where this goes? It's been floating around the van for a while and I'm pretty sure it came from somewhere in the back like the pop top or sliding dooor?

Looks like the weather strip piece that covers the locking/latching part on the "C" pillar. That is the rear part of the opening. It goes on the vertical center of the pillar where the latch is.

Only later models - not sure if it was there before 86.

My 1985 has it.
My 1985 seems to have almost all the later details, but unfortunately has the early fuse box. Kind of strange.

It's normal, my 85 is the same way. Transition period.

The rubber flapper thing is to cover the mechanism hole that is not present on earlier sliding doors.
