    Only rust was on the drive line & rear upper control arms. SC car, no snow or salt to contend with. Hope I can sort the abs light thing soon. The carpet is nasty under the drivers feet, looks like years of coffee spills.

    If you feel adventurous, remove the carpet from the car and power wash it. I did that and then shampooed it and it looks brand new.

    I'll second that, mine was nasty and half hour at qtr car wash and looked like new. No way was it going to be that clean doing in car.

    I hit it with the soap & degreaser in the car yesterday. Looks almost new. The car wash is a great idea. Used a 1/4 of Febreez so far. There was a funk I couldn't put my finger on. It's all coming along.
