The car goes vroom

We finally got the trunk to work again.

See, the 2000 focus has a known issue where the trunk just stops working. The lock still works, the latch still works, but they forget how to cooperate.

Anyhow, the trunk now works. We ended up ripping apart the back dash to get the seats to flip forward (oh yea, you can only make the seats do that from inside the trunk) Anyhow they ended up attaching a string to the inside trunk release and ran that into the back seat, so we have to pull this string thing to open the trunk now.

You know, it's not pretty but it works. I still wish we went to an auto body shop to get it done right, but beggars can't be choosy.
