some pics-

as you can see ive started cleaning the car up ( hate a dirty car ) Firstly i started with the interior by hoovering and shampooing the seats and carpet with a "george wet vac" i do all the valeting myself as im a bit funny about who touches my car. The seats and carpet have come up like new, The dash and door cards have always been mint in this car.
