Looks awesome Andrew -looks more like my 95 SLE SC than my 99 SSEi with the chrome t-stars.
I might suggest you revise the outside pics to pics with the sunroof slanted open. Will help to catch any potential buyers eyes -whenever I see a pic of a SSEi, even if there is a pic of the sunroof I try to focus on the initial exterior pics to verify a sunroof option.

Also, if you can get the engine up to operating temp parked then pull it into the garage and polish the painted part of the core-support and use Armor all on all the black underhood plastic. That will really help to bring it out and will really give a bling factor to someone coming to look at the car, as well as tell them that the car has definitely been cared for.

Stunning as usual! Very nice work, Andrew.

I was thinking of doing my spring clean and detail but now I might just wait and let you do it

I just went back and looked at the original pics for comparison. Good job reviving her I don't think you will have any problems selling it quickly.

maybe a member would like to take her home.

I wish I were living closer to Haro.
I'd trade him the Grizz and give him $2,000. :(

Marty, I'd detail it even more if my fingers wouldn't freeze while doing it. My fingers were numb after polishing those wheels.

Boy do I wish I was in the car market right now

Car looks beautiful, Andrew, it really does. I'd think that you could get 3k pretty easily for that car. If I got suckered into paying 3200 for my '92 with 118k miles, you could get away with 3k... It'* that spotless.

I'd have a hard time selling it after all that.

Good job and good luck.

Those rims really brightened up that car. Great revival...Cody almost had me wanting to buy it...seriously. I mean I'd love to but...eh you know my story.

Hope the sale goes well, I'm sure it will, being that Bonnie looks sooooo great!
