I use these 3 things.

1-Hoover Steam Vac




2-Zep carpet cleaner (inside the hoover) (get at home depot)




3-Orange Blast by Grease Lightning (use on the stubborn spots followed by the hoover)

Well I had some free time today....so I said...its TIME!

The original front bumper cover took a like tap and has 2 tears.
I found another cover for cheap and it was in great shape. Just needs paint.
Figured I would take it all off....clean up under there, rust proof and paint it up.

Feels so good to know I can walk away when I want and not have to drive it as a daily.
One problem I always had with the capris.

We bought the house just 2yrs ago..I never had a garage before either...
its great!....its actually my basement, grandfathered in cuz of the no fire
partitions/walls. Stays nice and comfy down there!

Frame rails are solid, cowl is solid. Just needs some cleaning up.
Im pleased!

the rust doesn't look to cancerous. Its always nice to have an indoor place to work on them.
