New Truck for Preservation work...

But first I have to fix it.

2010 F150 XLT with 8600 miles. Someone dropped a cigarette in the drivers seat.

Yeah I am trying to locate a professional detailer that has had experience with fire damage. Otherwise I'll try to vac and steam clean it myself. It's still salvage title, going now to find a seat and seat belt so it can pass inspection to register i

I can get that smoke out in 1-2 days. Not a problem. Drop me a p.m. and I'll drop by my smoke removal machine while working in ankeny for the next few days. No charge for CT guys/gals. Your electric though

Steam cleaning I might have to charge machine time but the smell not a problem.

I wouldn't put an ozone machine in it (myself). Cracks plastics (hard to see for a couple months than things start spliting) and hard on electronics (wiring).

We use a VaporShark with a SOS membrane. Non-toxic and works great.

Look around for a totaled one. Pick it up, use to parts you need, sell the driveline and your parts will be paid for. Done this a few times and always have came out ahead......
