Story of woe ... just got worse

Here lay my chariots of Fire (haha get it F.I.R.E LMAO!)



but hooray enzo looks all clean from the outside he was all ready for gaydon when the engine failed (nice way of me sayin it blew up)
even the wheels had been rescued from the demon black brake dust shame the stuff i used made the wheel bolts go rusty



Inside tho its an absolute picture.... No its not fake snow sprayed on the steering wheel to try and bring about a bit of a festive feeling within the car.... its actually deadly mould

ok maybe not deadly but ew
as u can see its basically eaten the gear knob...and its everywhere... sills, carpets and rear arm place bits



It all started when car was on jacks at front and the water came in via the back light area because the foam didn't seal the gap properly
what at first was just this...

condensed and then became this


I know i have to sort this out... not sure where to start tho
i'm not proudd of it but you have to see the funny side! mouldy cinq lol!
best bit is it must have only sprung up this month coz it wasn't there the last time i put summit in the car! weird
but the mascot monkey is ok

i rescued him from the disease which is currently enzo .... why didn't you tell me Monkey!! whyyyyyyyyy :rant:
ah well there tis

I think you should pile both of them into that trailor thats sitting there and take them to the dump, or a deep lake, or a really deep cave, just somewhere where thay can inflict no more pain on people

Oh i don't know, if the devil lives down there, you may just give him the tools to rise to the earths face and rule us all in fear and in darkness for the next millennium, then again on second thoughts they would probably break down just past the mantle so we are all safe

Re: Story of woe ... just got worse

Sad pictures.

You need to get rid of all the mouldy parts, IME it never cleans and is actually quite hazardous to health.

I'd get the car somewhere dry since it'll be the sudden cold snap that has caused the mould then get the boot area stripped and resealed.

Re: Story of woe ... just got worse

Ewwww that look's very tasty, Liam's right, get rid of them parts, and get them incinerated. You don't seem to be having much luck car wise at the moment, I recommend a plastic childs car, less to go wrong

Re: Story of woe ... just got worse

bit of warm soapy water will get rid of most of that mold.

Re: Story of woe ... just got worse

That is minging, the car must smell like a badgers arse. You might have to strip out most of the car, and use something like detol if you ever want it to be nice again.

Re: Story of woe ... just got worse

You can wash it out, its not much of a biggy really just time consuming, classic beetle does that every year over the winter months sat in the garage at home but it washes out. It does mess your leather bit up good and proper though, i now need a new sterring wheel for my bug but i didn't like the one it had anyway, bringing back an original if i can find a good one for cheap.

edit: As your car is stripped why not go the whole hog and remove all the carpets, thats the hard bit anyway. I think i'll pull them all out my beetle next time its cleaned and keep them in the house.
