Bit rough around the edges too



Result after 2 min with - a drilling machine - some emery paper - some polish, and an old cloth =



Finished -

The cleaning of interior was interrupted by our annual indoor swapmeet.
Here I found a few original relay,s with the correct date for my car.
Also found a correct rear screen relay (the one with wires on) - I know = its anorak stuff, but I like details.

Hi Kevin, thanks & yes - its nice to see (and smell) the difference Smile

Have used the whole can of interior cleaning foam, you saw in the picture.
Two cans of silicone spray - one can of brake cleaner & 7 cans of Motip vinyl make up, with Lemon smell - kept spraying the seats, untill they stopped absorbing the previus coat I had given them.
She does smell good now Laughing


Here is what the luggage compartment looked like =



10 min later =

This is NOT what I wanted to see, when I climbed up under the roof, to insulate the garage.

My car is standing right under this beam Rolling Eyes





Here is a better wiew =


The 2 spiked plates in the other end of the beams had also rusted apart.
I fitted new galvanized plates, with LONG screws (on all) -

Good thing I have 2 big garage jacks =





They got the ceiling back up in no time - all nice & straight now.

The whole ceiling now have 2 layers of insulation = 35-40 cm.
