Pics of the Fire Damage

So I had a chance to go to the dealership this morning and take some pics .
I have a thread in kill stories to explain what happend. After looking at it today I'm kinda hoping it can be fixed. I love my truck and would hate to loose her. We connected te batteries and the truck fired right up so thats a good sign.

This is where the fire started a wiring harness short under the seat



These are just some various pics to show the damage.

I saw the kill thread but dang, i didn't realize it was so bad. That sucks! Looks like it can be salvaged though can't it? I'm sorry that happened to ya cause I'm sure you didn't deserve it. Who else dislikes heated seats? :rofl: (just lightening up the mood hehe)

The only thing about it is they could fix it like you want I doubt the smell would ever go away.

I hadn't thought of the smell. Other than the dash I was thinking a whole new interior. Dunno how costly new door skins, headliner, visors, steering wheel, seats, console, trim pieces and carpet, ect would be though.

Mudrunninpig Did your CB or other monitors get ruined too? Or just dirty.

Hadn't had a chance to check. I had the cover on the gps. So it may be ok.
The CB melted so it's trashed. The edge evo didnt check to see if the fire damaged the wiring but I dont think so. My ipod is trashed. So we will see what the insurance or ford wants to do. My dealership has been awesome so far. They checked this am to see if this is a re-occuring problem and it isn't. But my service manager and service writer want to be present when the insurance adjuster i there with me. They are also contacting corporate to see if they will help.:please::please:
