Well it pains me to say this but XPTBSS was involved in a serious fire. The details of the fire are unknown but it seems to have started on the passenger side front seat. It went unnoticed until it was too late and the interior is trashed :-(. Insurance is sending their total loss rep to assess the damage. From what i can tell is it is all cosmetic damage and little to no mech damage. One way or another i am building it back....with insurance help or on my dime. If you or anyone has interior pieces please post them up. I need just about everything. I think only one door panel, steering wheel, dash and shifter are about all thats salvagable. Insurance comes tomorrow then i will know more of which direction im going. Teardown will begin immediately. Thanks for your time....

Yeah needless to say yesyerday i was sick to my stomach. This has been my favorite vehicle owned. Even with all the tranny issues i went through i love this thing. Its going nowhere...i want to hand it down to my son in the future cause he smiles everytime hes in it. Its a part of my family....i bought it specifically for my son. He came home from the hospital when he was born in it. Alot of memories....

Im sorry to hear that. Good luck with the rebuild. Hopefully the insurance company doesnt claim it as totaled. Do you have any pictures of the damage?

Thanks Joe. Anything is greatly appreciated. My insurance comes today and I'm actually worried. Worst case its totaled I i keep it. I'll never sell it so it really shouldn't matter. I just want it fixed.

That isn't bad but all price are negotionable. If you plan on keeping it in the fam I don't see the big deal with a salvaged vehicle. Otherwise, strip it.. and sell me your 80 :D
