The process is more important than the product. Take your time and do each step thoroughly and don't skip any steps. Most automotive headlights have a similar grade of plastic. I used a $8 bottle...

I have used a Griffin iTrip in rentals without AUX plugs. Costs under $30 anywhere it's sold and provides a USB port to charge the iPod while you're at it.

I'm not too worried about it, it's a $700 car! But I did confirm, it is a 1995 model. The seller got it confused with a 1990 model he had on the lot. This car has NO records at ALL! Isn't that...

Sounds to me then like seller doesn't know what he's talking about then.

I'll know for sure Saturday. Maybe this is an older model like a '90, or the timing chain was replaced for being noisy? ...

I had a Ford Tempo like this once. It had a little lever near the driver's seat to pop the fuel door open. It never worked. I found that pushing in a bit on the fuel door right before pulling it...
