I have more pics on my profile but i cant figure out how to get them here.
I have also pulled out all the carpet and sanded floor down to smooth out the ruff spots, going to put wood floors in soon and started stripping the paint off so far i figured it has been painted 5 times, it was so thick its just flying off going down the road. Hear is what it looks like now. Will update more pics as i go
