I got my car off a family and the two parents were heavy smokers. The car smelt like that for a month or two till i nearly got the smell out then it turned to a vomit smell.

I decided that i would replace the GLi seats with fairmont ones. I pulled out the seats and the front were caked in s**t and under the rear there was a layer of sand, $20 note $20 of coins and alots of makkaz chips and s**t like that. Cleaned it right up and sprayed vanilla essense over the carpet and put s deodorizer in and it came up brilliantly.

Later i painted the daah and i cleaned all the air vents out cause there was a layer of crappy cigarette smoke in them.

Probably good for getting the smell out of your clothes after going fishing then :wink:

Can strongly reccomend febreeze as well. It's really great stuff and works extremely well.

It got the rotten pizza smell out of my car after 6 months of pizza deliveries when nothing else could!

I would remove the back seat and check what lies beneath.

I discovered a couple of handfulls of crud under there when I went to replace the centre seat belt, courtesy of the wife letting the kids eat in the back. :shock:

Needless to say I was not amused...(BTW, that's wet upholstery cleaner, on the seats)

I bought an XF for 500 bucks. We pulled the entire interior out to install the stereo and a Ghia interior. In the process found $72.53 cents. Went and bought a carton of Bundy to celebrate the fact my car didn't really cost 500 bucks.....and still had $22.74 in my pocket!

Little bit OT here but one time I was f**k around with the old EA with the electrics and generally cleaning up the inside of the car (when I bought the car it was trashed to the max), was playing with the A/C controls and whatnot and all of a sudden a large mass of smoke came out (previous owner was a smoker)... I thought s**t i've shorted out something, somethings on fire, so it was the quick ignition off look for things on fire then I realised it was stale cigarette smoke... damn, that C*** must have smoked ten packs a day to get that much of the s**t crammed in there, the car stunk like it for weeks, I just left it open the whole time... lol

Then the whole thing just got coated in limestone dust and I sold it.. so meh

Have you checked for dead or decomposed Rats mate??. I had a Turbo Ute and the rats were in fine form that year and they got into the dash, and they were running over the engine, so I put some Rat Bait out and the wankers died in the air ducts, I got them out but it took ages to get rid of the smell.......And this year is another good year for Rats and I have just noticed Rat s**t on the engine of My Pursuit, So im on the war path again, the bastards did $1600 worth of damage to my wife's XR6 this winter, but the insurance paid for that.............Now that I have got that out of my system, Id still check for something dead, Rats get in anywhere mate. :evil: :evil: :evil:

I have never tried febreeze, but every time i wash the car i spray the inside with Meguirs odor eliminator (Comes in a yellow bottle)

a mate also used it when his grilfriend spewed in my tent that they borrowed. the smell is gone and the tent smells nice!
