EdgeLax - That model looks really nice! What size did you order? Has it come in yet?

Me, I deodorized ours. Word of caution, putting bags of groceries between the first and second rows of seats is not the best ideal. Too lazy to open the tailgate, I just dumped a few bags on the floor behind the driver's seat. Yesterday morning, the stench in the vehicle was gagging us. Turns out that a package of chicken livers slipped out of the bag and under the second row seat. Fortunately, it landed top side up, but the gasses created by the rotting meat, popped the top and let out not only the foul (yeah, pun) odor, but some of the juice leaked onto the carpet as well. Cleaned the spill off of the carpet, sprayed everything with Fabreeze to no avail. Got a heavy-duty deodorizing spray that masked things for about 10 nanoseconds. Finally found a McQuires spray bomb, turn on the air full and recirculate, set the bomb off and let it go for 15 minutes, come back and air the vehicle out for another 10 minutes. This morning, all was fine, still get that sweet "new car smell" from the deodorizer but it's 10000% better than rotting chicken parts....

All groceries go in the back in the basket and chest that I put back there just for that.

Sorry to hear that happened, but at least you we're able to maintain that new car smell....I just put down the all weather mats and now I'm set for any spills, drops, mud, etc..guess it could help with keeping items in place...it's a good investment...

I went ahead and signed all the papers as I figured get that out of the way so when it finally arrives, then I can just take it.

Somehow, no one has yet been able to achieve that "new car smell" out of a spray can, bottle or hanging thingy. We still have a bit of a strange smell coming from the air vents even after getting rid of the chicken smell, and so I went to the store to maybe pick up something to deal with that. McGuire's deodorizers have a "scratch and smell" pad on the box, so I tired it, and found that the strange smell is really their interpretation of what a new car smell is. I tried (scratch and smell) their "fresh air" and "woods" versions and I think I'll just put up with the way it is for now, knowing that they can't duplicate a real new car smell, and adding more deodorizer isn't the solution to getting rid of the smell of another deodorizer.

Oh, what did I do to my Pacifica yesterday? Well, I did touch up those few little dings where I bumped into our stucco post, not once, but twice.

If you don't mind me asking where did you get the wheels? What brand and size and what was the price?
