i started on the interior yesterday took most of it out shampooed everything gonna do some interior painting in a day or two also another funny thing he told me the transmission went out the next day after he bought it but the car has almost 20,000 miles more on it now then when he bought it and also he told me the tires were like that when he bought it but i have all the receipts from when i did everything too it the last time and the wheels and tires were less then a month old before he bought the car but at least he was nice enough to rotate the tires and make sure all 4 were slick from burnouts

i hate when I see a car that was previosly nice but the new owner fucked it up.There was a dude in my club that had a box caprice on 22s...im not a fan of big rims but the car was clean.interior was nice the paint was original but still really nice.and the rims were nice...I moved back to were am at now and a good friend of mine owns the car now...the paint is fucked,rims have so many curb marks,interior is sick,and there are dents and dings in places that make no sense.I hate when you see people who just drive there car to look cool and not take any pride.

take the car somewhere to get the top put on...im not trying to knock your skill or anything but its not an easy job....if its even room temperature your going to have to put heatlamps on it just to stretch it, once its stretch you have to staple it down...save yourself the hassle and risk of fucking it up and take it to a pro
