Default I need to Rant On My Car

Hey everyone, I gotta get some stuff off me about my car. As much as I love my bonneville, it needs a hellatta work on it. Its about to go over my head, I don't know how to fix jack squat at all unless I get help and my help is away for a while. My car needs: The sunroof drain is ruptured and needs to be replaced, Believing the headliner needs to be dropped, yay. My car looks dirty as hell compared to other similar aged cars here no matter how much I clean it. the left tailight is containing water, the car was vandalized some time ago so theres deep scratches everywhere, I'm suspecting theres some kind of water leak in the back headliner cause I felt that area and it felt sorta damp, so theres a new problem.

The Light thing between the visors is ghetto-rigged to the headliner. There is duct tape in the steering wheel shaft area so I'm thinking the dash is also ghetto-rigged. Not to mention I need the front passengers side oh crap handle which I've tried to get them from the scrapyard but I broke them trying to get it off, I have to rip the dash apart so my gauges will work right again, which I have no exp. on. I'm way to afraid to tough anything moderate or major ccause I'm afraid I'll make it worse. I wish someone around here lived close to me and we could go do a mini-meet and help fix my car... *sigh*

Theres much more crap that I don't remember right now....

EDIT: I remembered more. The westher stripping is damaged in some places, I can't flick my bright lights on, I have some weird wiper thing going on that my blades are chattering on the windshield.


*sings "over my head" by the fray"*
