Gutted! Empty
PostSubject: Gutted!   Gutted! EmptySun Apr 06, 2008 9:42 am

Well, I was going to take pick's of the $700 Riv. but I found myself Ripping the whole inside out. The car was owned at some time, by a guy named Lonnie Buck, an official measurer for the bone and crockit, buck (Deer) trophy.reindeer here in michigan. and he liked his donkey d%@k cigars smoke so the whole car stank to high heaven. so out came the whole head liner, and pillar trim. the center console, and seats. for a full detail.
while the seats are out they will be serviced and cleaned. the center console got a full detail, carpet will also be cleaned
Note: I found a Kick ass way to clean head liner!!!!!!!!
This car had 10yrs of HEAVY nicotine on all the fabric puke

1. Get a few cans of good carpet/cloth stain remover for cars ." ie: Lift-1 autozone 2@ 4.99 "
2. Only put product on cleaning rag, get several highly absorbent towels.
3. it will take 2 or 3 cleaning's to get real heavy stains out just keep moving to a clean part of your rag and keep an even cleaning pattern. you would not believe the crap this stuff will pull from your fabric. do not wet the fabric totally just the top surface, this will keep it from letting loose from the molded backing.

That's the worst, from a non-smokers standpoint. Smokers don't realize (or don't care) how bad smoking F***s up the interior of a car.

Good luck!

I know you guy's wouldn't think $700 would buy much, But with a little elbow grease and a couple of wrenches I think she will be all right. so here's some picks of me cleaning the inside of the Rivi, and after I ran it through a spray wash.

Very nice, it looks like you have cleaned up a few cars before.

Did you take the carpet out?

You should be able to get a wheel center off ebay.

Looks like you have got the best bargain for the money possible. clap
