Default RE: How much is too much?

I had some heater hose left over and with some "miracle" duct tape........... attatched it to a vacum cleaner hose. It was great when it came to reaching way up inside to get as much as I could. Another good place to vacum is inside the door.......and where the door hinges are. You can even run it inside the heater plenum........and inside those "doors" that open to let in fresh air. Anywhere you can get at with a vacum.........get it. !! I found a total of 6 mice nests. Strangely enough........all the "nest" material came from up under the headliner.........go figure.

Great idea that heater hose! I've been vacuming everywhere I could reach and was wondering how I was gonna get into some of those tight spots. :)

the car at this Ebay listing might be the kind of "donor" you
could consider, with further investingation into its condition.
It appears to have been partially rolled so the roof is trash
on one side. The underside might (I use the word "might" carefully)
be of value. There is also the issue of compatibility with
58s. There is probably a ton of money to be recouped by
selling off good parts from it. (the rear bumper looks quite
good in the photos). Who knows?? The car does not appear to
be selling at $2000...

Default RE: How much is too much?

thank you for the compliment on my car as well as the credit
on registering that car. The photo of my car was from about
40',a good distance to minimize flaws! But it's coming along...
