<< When I got home and went to get my mats out of the trunk I saw that 
 vacuumed the inside of the trunk must have bashed my CD changer (practically 
 new and just recently working again) and knocked the cover off track and it 
 will not go back. I called immediately and the owner said bring it back, 
 he'll try to fix it. TRY? Then it gets better...I go to put the rear mats in 
 place and see something on the leather. Several areas in the middle of the 
 back seat had spots where the (ecru) finish was literally rubbed off!!!! No 
 one even sits back there, I mean it was like brand new! I was out of my mind 
 by then. 

a few years back i tried (unsucessfully) to revive the dulling clearcoat on 
the roof/hood of my former '84 5kT (now wrecked, so it doesnt matter anyway) 
and took it to a local detail shop..
in addition to the wonderful "swirl marks" left by a dirty buffer pad, the 
buffing buffoon managed to buff off some of the pinstriping, and burn the 
shiny rubber coating off the side body moulding...    i was highly peeved..   
 they ended up re-buffing the car (with a clean pad) and re-striping it, and 
painted all the side body moulding and corresponding bumper parts, black. 
sometimes it pays to do it yourself..

'86 5kT, TQ
