    I have finally got time to build up this ride that I picked up from one of the Lebanese guy for 3800 dollars.

    -Interior was pretty bad ,
    -seats are torn,
    -carpet was pretty dirty,
    -upholstery wasn't clean at all
    -Matts were pretty dirty.
    -CD Player not working
    -Cigrette lighter is missing
    -Seats are pretty smelly.

    I have cleaned the carpets , seats , upholstery and the matts so far.

    Today I took the initiative to take the central console out.

    I have taken the stock mitsubishi Head unit out.
    I want a single din cheap mp3 player for my car now
    Any suggestions?

    I am getting seats from wreckers (If I can find any)

    I dont really want a USB one not because they are ideal for me ./ I have my 80gb ipod in my car and i can use AUX functional
    up here the USB one will cost about 160-170.
    the one i saw yesterday CD/MP3 front AUX Sony explode (with RCA out) was about 97$ thats not bad for that car.

    Ripped all the parts and seats

    I have used a Steamy Carpet cleaner and deodorizer to clean the seats and hopefuly it will fix the smell.
    now car doesnt have that smell anymore. hope it doesnt smell again.

    lol if u want sell it and get a manual!!! only sell it if u get a profit out of it. otherwise if ur gonna sell it cause of the smell then no point especially if there's no profit.

    i think according to our prices that is expensive. maybe if he gives for around 5000 or less then it would be ok. hey at least the smell is gone!!! sounds like it took u a while to get rid of it ahah
