It's been a couple years since I've cleaned and waxed this thing and I must say, she cleans up nicely!

SAD Day! I found some bubbling under the paint a few days ago and this morning I tapped on that area to clear away the loose paint. . . this is what I found :cry:
Image

After clearing the cancer away I noticed a lot of material inside the panel and started pulling out as much as I could with a pair of hemostats then had the idea to vacuum the rest out. Minus the dirt and debris that was already in the cleaner, this is what I pulled out. . a lot of foam and other insulation.
Image

My guess is that with one of the previous owners, a mouse had made a nest in that panel. All that material combined with water was obviously a bad combination. It sucks because I had no way of knowing this to prevent it. Anyways, I need to repair this section, is there anything I should do as far as preventative maintenance to help prevent this from happening again?

Nothing major going on with the Celica lately, just maintaining and driving. This past weekend I hosted a Gun Day Fun Day on my dad's property which was a little muddy, a friends truck got stuck in the mud so I volunteered to save the day :) Thought some of you may get a laugh out of this, wish I had a decent video to share.

A photographer friend of mine came out to take some pictures of the AllTrac. What I've seen so far looks great, I can't wait to see the others :)

Do you have that link?

The link is dead but I printed these instructions off at the time I made the tool, here's pictures of my copy.

I built one exactly like Zach's and it works great. I spent over an hour trying to "play the drums" to get my airbag code to clear with no success. First try with the tool and my airbag light was out.
