smelled really bad
This was the beginning of the clean up of the insides of the cat. Infested with rats and insects and filth.
The interior was a complete loss!

This is really a "before" picture, the car has been cleaned out and stored. In the cleaning process My wife, Jennifer, found the original build sheet from Dearborn. She was really excited it was there. It is badly discolored, but readable...
It looks really bad but everything that I need is there complete.
The Odometer reads 38,740! But you can tell this E-Cat was ragged on really hard!

Started with a extreme, severe removal/cleaning of everything unwanted of things both living and not...
yes wireing is been eaten/chewed beyond repair. I will build a new harness for it, this will take some time but I have done this for several different cars before.
The first big thing this cat is going to get is a complete media blasting followed by primer/sealer and new yellow paint, everything is completely stripped out/off of it now...The resto will not be concourse, but will include the best of what I can afford, It will take lots of time.
