Yes I missed the car, but now starts the refurb inside..
The drive home was none eventful, as I did not take it over 60MPH, just did not want anything to go wrong, plus it gave me time to listen for any bangs and watch for parts to fall off!! but thanks to Lee all was well.
I told Lee not to replace any of the inside, as I was going to rip it out anyway, so today I was going though all the parts trying to work out where they all go.. :crazy
I have already started clearing out the rotten carpets and cleaning the floor etc.. already covered a few parts with new carpet and started wiring some new interior lighting etc..
I will post some pics once I have sorted them out..
Still need to get the car re-sprayed and get the "Geo" set up, but there is light at the end of the tunnel!

A big ::T ::H ::A ::N ::K ::Y ::O ::U to Lee for the fine work. Very pleased, even if I did go over my budget!! it was well worth it, the car drives like new. :A610
