We have had cars with a 1000 miles on them in the shop that aren't as clean as that Crown Vic.

But how in the hell do you make a payment on a car every month and crap in it?

I almost puked a little just watching the guy clean the seats. sprayed something on and squeegeed it of with a bondo spreader and what came out was black liquid goo. I didn't think the cloth armrest was savable it was black with sweat stains but the guy swore he could clean it and he sure did, this truck looks brand new again I've never in my life saw anything like it. Im amazed. As soon as I get the door lock actuators in and put the door panels on I'll get some pics of what a great job he did. He sure has a strong stomach.

Thanks for reminding me. I have to get 4 for my car trailer before I haul another car. Then 4 more for my covered trailer just to sell it. Man I'm tired.

I love having them BTW. Saved me from having to change a tire in the rain. Had a nail in it, stopped at a gas station on way home and aired it up. Ran it down to the tire shop the next day. I have a compressor in my garage and a very bad back.
My vehicle automatically detects them no matter what corner they're on. It may take a little while to recognize their position. Maybe all vehicles don't work the same....

deadbodyman Scrubbing and cleaning this old truck.
I sold this truck to a good friend 10 years ago. It was my mother in laws and she wanted a new car. He called me last week wanting to sell it so I bought it back and my God was it a mess. Black mold covered the whole truck it took two washes with greased lightening to get it to here it still has some grime but for now its good enough I pulled the nasty seats out and had to call in the big guns (someone else to clean it) Its a good truck with only 60,000 miles its just been neglected for 10 years it has had the oil changed regularly though. It s been a full week of cleaning and fixing little stuff like door lock actuators, headliner which I did myself (first time). Anyways its still not done but it is getting there.
Oh, BTW, I painted this 17 years ago.

MARTINSR All I have been working on is my picture frame. I am doing this a foot away from my truck though, so I am getting closer.

Nope. Put them where you want. I rotated mine every spring.

John long I have still been dinken around with positioning the engine in Precious. Ordered a set of '69 Camaro motor and frame mounts which should be here Saturday. In the mean time I have finished E brake brackets, planned brake and fuel line routing but nothing worth photo documentation.

I did clean the shop a little.

123pugsy Passed my framing inspection for the deck yesterday. Just need to add the deck boards and pickets and can call him back for occupancy inspection.

Everything inspection wise will be done except a stand up shower in the basement and one in the upstairs en suite washrooms. I'll finish those without a permit.

After that, I need to call the water police to check the grading and get my deposit back.

123pugsy I got my compressor fixed today. A couple new reeds and a coupla gaskets and she's good to go.

Oh great, no excuse not to install the wife's summer tires now.
