Interior has been stripped to see if the leak has caused any interior rust and luckily none was found. Removed 8 lbs of sound deadening (dry ice is awesome)/bottom of the firewall mat that was soaked and smelled terrible. Cleaned entire interior and plan to POR 15 everywhere I can. Still waiting on parts from Honda. Looking into some local VX rims as well.

Did you blast it with dry ice pellets - i.e. like sandblasting - or just use dry ice to make the stuff brittle and easy to remove ?

Took care of the two worst wheels yesterday. A lot of work but well worth it.

That looks very clean and lightweight on the inside.

Are you going to drive it this way ?
