[DML] Re: Musty odor

Thanks Brandon.
I checked with Warren at DMCH and according to him I think only the 
drivers side is still available or was it the pasenger? Anyways, if 
I do it, I want both sides to match. I am having my seats and 
carpeting ozoned tonight as a matter of fact. the condition of the 
carpets and seats are rediculousley perfect, I would hate to replace 
anything if I don't have too. I'll let you know how the ozone works.

I have vin # 3947 81' Black Auto.

Thanks for your input. we'll see what happens. Ron Wester actually 
said there is a vendor out there sellin D carpet. I want to wait and 
see what happens with the ozone before i do anything.
