      Yea if you want to delete the light you can try and find a nice trunk from a hardtop, or else there will be holes left. BTW why are the tires so muddy when you are washing/polishing it? Haha

          Hah, the driveway to the shop has a bunch of fill dirt for a landscaping project and the tires will just get muddy again when I pull it out. I'll be putting the car into my garage when I have the Mazdaspeed6 put back to stock and sold.

            Don't use e34 seats in an e30. The rails are different and use hooks in the front, not bolts. Not a safe swap.

              Hope no one is flying into the east coast! You will need a seaplane!

                    Mold is bad news! How do go about killing it?

                          I let the interior fully dry and scrubbed surfaces with a mold/mildew enzyme eliminator and blocker. I will be ordering an HVAC and vent cleaning solution from 1Einzett via Autogeek.net. All in all the interior was minor. A bad mold/mildew you dry it, use an ozone machine and ckean with enzymes. There is a bad trunk leak also so I have two moisture traps in there to help it dry, then I will use enzymes. The fun part will be figuring out which seal(s) are leaking and replace them. The third brake light seal seems pretty shady.

                            Check tail light gaskets, as well as the trunk seal.

                              Water in the trunk is pretty common. Tail lights seal, sunroof drains and trunk seal are the common culprits

                                Sunroof drains? Esplain.

                                I always get water pooling on top of the battery cover. Back when I parked it outside I'd just put a rag on top of it and it dried itself juuuuust fast enough that it was fine.
