Holy F#*kin Shit!!!
Damn! So as most of you know when I bought my L7 the heater core was bad... so I pulled it and replaced with a new one, yadda yadda yadda. Now I went and pulled the original carpet and sound insulation... FUCK! It stinks worse now than it did when everything was in it and reaked of antifreeze! Smells like a combination of rotting corpse, ass, and vomit! I have to pull the console again to get the last of the carpet and foam... does anyone know what I could use to get that stench out of the car? I assume it rotting foam since the previous owner didn't have enough pride in his car to get it taken care of, and not to mention when I pulled everything the foam was black and falling apart.
Also... the 1/4" thick black 'matting' that is in the center of the foot areas infront of all the seats - should I scrape that off and replace it(thinking a THIN layer of rhino lining or line-x or something of the sort to seal the steel up and protect from rust... that shit's heavy.)
Lastly, I need new insulation... I noticed parts of it were upwards of almost 2" thick (if not more), like right next to the inner kick-panels up front. If anyone knows of a scrap car that's dry I can pull the foam from (of they can pull and ship - I'll reimburse/pay in advance - for shipping plus labor of getting the foam and any other associated costs)?
well what you do is look for parts near that area, and if you find a junkyard that has them, give them a call and see if they are willing to rip otu that piece of foam for you... and u dont need OEM btw, its just any random insulation im sure you can find even padding from anothe rbimmer that will fit urs
