I decided to take 21 years out of my escort's interior
 
I was bored, and I had some time, so Saturday morning, bright and early, I set to work removing the interior on the 'scort for some DEEP cleaning. I had 2 goals to accomplish in performing this task:

#1- Fix anything broken that I found while removing the interior
#2- Locate the source of a HORRENDOUS FOUL ODOR that I could not pin down, and either remove it or clean it.

Much better. I nailed the smell (whatever it was) and to be honest, I was suprised it was not nastier than it was under all that. Just some dust. I have torn apart 5 year old cars that looked worse than this one.

Nice!!!

Every time ive taken apart interior peices(running wires for stereos)... it dont quite go back together easily for me lol.

Good job on the clean up!! What was the source of the smell?? Lol

I dont know exactly, but its gone now. Maybe 21 years of farting and BO in the seats? who knows. I shampooed all the upholstery and carpet.

who the heck used to sit in the back seat on the passenger side, their shoes sure made the floor dirty, they must have worked with asphalt or something
