The low sides of the headliner were lined with rat poop droppings. I have no idea how they climbed up there. Maybe they jumped? Maybe they used the lawnmower handle that was in the front seat that was high enough?? I just don't know. Either way, I was determined to remove it.
At this point I was inside the car, tearing away at what I could but, I was getting showered with rat droppings.
So there it is, minus the headliner. My shop-vac was working overtime and I had to dump it out afterward and clean the brand new filter I just purchased for it. There is a lot of work that needs to be done on the interior like the dashboard removal and after I pull the motor, I'll start with removing the windows and doors.
