SILLS IN MY 72 CAPRI FULL OF LOOSE DRY SAND: CANT FIND THIS IN THE FORD OPTIONS LIST !
Safe to assume sills full of sand was not in the Ford options list ! ............ it's dry sand and loose and easy to vacuum out at the inspection holes on the inside just a little above at floor level. As much as I try with flexible hoses on the vacuum cleaner pickup, I cant get it all out. Before I do the wrong thing like flushing out with water and maybe cause rust which is not there, I'd ask here to see if any one has a better idea?
I figured if the sand got in over the years via "gaps" in the metal joins, flushing may be the best way and maybe follow up with a hair dryer and then fish oil when all dry ???
Car was in storage for 25 years before I purchased her several years ago which may be why she has very little rust.
This all started when I purchased new Crash Pads and Fr Parcel Shelf Material to rebuild my Dash Area and replace the crap Stereo Head and crap speakers. Naturally, as we all know, one jobs leads to another !
Any help or good ideas much appreciated in advance.
