I'd do $500. A carpet shampooer can go a long way

Careful. I had to give my car to a medic to take to a detox facility. My headaches stopped after that, and I assume they were caused by the 3 identified types of mold.

Also, can you go during the night and steal for me the bumpers? That would be most appreciated.

What you do is, strip the interior and remove the carpet entirely. If it is not torn up or rotten, you can power wash it and hang it in the sun to dry. If it is really awful, get a solid carpet with a decent backing from a JY and wash it. It may take 2-4 days for it to dry depending on the humidity, wind, and temperature While it is drying, find and fix all the water leaks that got it wet in the first place. Do the same with the trunk mats. Don't forget the insulation under the rear bench. I did all this with my $700 '95 when I bought it 2 years ago. Made a world of difference.

Sounds like when I test drove a 95 SSEi last year. The thing was TRASHED. It smelled bad, leaks everywhere, headliner was terrible, paint chipping, HUD was shot and so was the sterio, the leather was ripped. Yet it only had 90K. I honestly dont understand how people cannot have an appreciation for such things. I wonder if these same people trash their homes and leave garbage all over the place, holes in the walls, ect. You probably paid alot of money for it, you might want to take care of it so its still nice years down the road. Its really angering to see something like that wasted!

At least see if you can pick up the "broken" */C for a reasonable price. Offer him $25, see if he bites...I know you could resell it for a pretty good price.
