My husband decided to surprise me with a 99 Safari this weekend. That's the good news. The (possibly) bad news is that it has a salvaged title due to flood damage. The interior looks fantastic, although it is missing the mattress and the couch. It doesn't smell musty or anything that I would immediately expect from water damage. Can anyone tell me some things that I should look for?
We will now have to sell our beloved (seen better days, piece of junk) '72 Beaver, but it's time to move up.
I don't know what I'm going to do with all this knowledge that you all share so generously. I will gratefully accept any tips you can give me regarding maintenance and such. My brain will probably overheat trying to absorb it all. Looking forward to talking with everyone.Cheryl
